In a recent interview with Bill Apter for Sportskeeda, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler provided an update on his health after suffering a stroke back in February of this year, noting that he is in rehab and that the main thing that is drawing him back is his voice, which is slowly coming back.
“I’ve had a bunch of different things, and I’m still in rehab three times a week, and probably the main thing that’s drawing me back now that you can probably tell, as you hear me talk, my voice is not the same as it was beforehand.
It’s slowly coming back, but it needed to come back a little more before I could make sense with my speech and vocabulary. One is speech, that’s my main one, that’s three times a week.
When I just started this, right after I had the stroke, I could barely talk. Now, I go in and I sit down with this rehab lady and we just talk about different things, she’s had me read stuff and all of this stuff has just helped me day in and day out getting my vocabulary better.
My right arm and my right leg, and everything on my right side of the body, it’s not hurt me where I can’t walk around, I can still walk around, but I don’t have really good control of writing my autograph. I can write my autograph pretty good, but I’ve been so proud of my autograph and artistic ability, but that’s all sort of taken a while to come back.”
