The King visits local store

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - It's not everyday that you're shopping at Wal-Mart and bump into royalty, but the king of the ring was at the Parker Road Wal-Mart in Jonesboro on Saturday.

Jerry "The King" Lawler took a break from pile-driving his opponents to shake hands and sign autographs.  Lawler was in town promoting a wrestling event in Tuckerman and said stopping in Jonesboro brings back memories.

"Jonesboro was a Saturday night stop for us for years and years.  It's great to come out and not only see some of the old fans but see some of the kids that are fans now from watching me on 'Monday Night Raw'," said Lawler.

Lawler said after all of these years, its still easier to wrestle a match than it is to do play-by-play for a two-hour live show every week.
