Lawler achieved some mainstream notoriety many years ago when he was involved in a much-publicized feud with the late comedian Andy Kaufman. There is some debate whether the feud was legit or staged. Honestly, it is hard to tell and I really don't know.
Lawler had a heart attack on live television earlier this year. Fortunately, he has made a complete recovery. Actually he looked fantastic when Matt and I saw him at a PCW wrestling event.
Lawler brought his crown and Matt got to hold it for the picture. I still think Matt should have gone for it, by putting the crown on his head. Now that would have been a cool photo. Still, I am pretty sure this is the only photo I have ever posted featuring a (non-beauty pageant ) crown.
