Jim Ross provided more details on Jerry “The King” Lawler missing yesterday’s Monday Night Raw taping in Manchester, England due to a knee injury.
“The King missed a rare, Monday night Raw this week from Manchester, England with a severe infection that came as a result of a knee injury. Jerry is getting a daily dose of antibiotics via an IV and hopes to be feeling better soon. He told me Monday that his knee felt better and that an expert physician in infections was addressing the King’s condition. The King doesn’t have staph infection as I understand it which is good news. Jerry is very resilient and I’m relatively confident that he will be back on the air when Raw does their three hour, Old School broadcast.”
