Jerry Lawler Net Worth: Jerry Lawler is an American semi-retired professional wrestler and WWE commentator who has a net worth of $7 million. Jerry (O'Neil) Lawler was born November 29, 1949 in Memphis, Tennessee. He is currently signed to WWE where he serves as play-by-play commentator on Raw and WWE PPVs. Lawler is known throughout the Professional Wrestling world as Jerry "The King" Lawler. Lawler is a former world champion and has held 168 championships throughout his career. Overall, Lawler has held more championships than any other current WWE wrestler, though he has never won any WWE championships since joining the company. Despite being a commentator for World Wrestling Entertainment for almost 20 years, he is probably most famous for his feud with comedian Andy Kaufman. In 1982, Jerry Lawler made national news when he feuded with Andy Kaufman, a feud which began when Andy Kaufman took his comedy act—where he wrestled women and claimed to be the inter-gender wrestling champion of the world—too seriously. When Andy fought Jerry, Andy was hospitalized after being served the 'piledriver' move. The two later got into an infamous confrontation on Late Night With David Letterman, the segment ending with Kaufman launching into an obscene tirade that ended with NBC threatening Kaufman with never working on their network again and Kaufman suing the network for $200 million. Lawler is the former husband of WWE Diva Stacy "The Kat" Carter, the cousin of The Honky Tonk Man, and the father of former WWE Superstar Brian Christopher, who also went by the name of Grandmaster Sexay. Jerry Lawler's career began while he was a disc jockey. In exchange for free publicity for the local wrestling promotion, Jerry received free wrestling lessons. He was trained by Jackie Fargo and made his debut in 1970. He spent most of his first twenty years in wrestling for the Memphis territory, the main title being Southern Heavyweight Championship, which Jerry Lawler won approximately 70 times by 1988. Lawler also created musical recordings and in 1999 ran for mayor of Memphis, Tennessee, but lost. Lawler is also an accomplished commercial artist, designing graphics for various companies, including WWE. In 2007, he painted the cover of the wrestling comic book, Headlocked.
