WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler was an attendee at a Trump rally held in Mississippi this week.
He was seen wearing a Donald Trump t-shirt sitting right behind Trump in the front-row at the Landers Center.
In the rally, President Trump mocked Christine Blasey Ford’s Senate Judiciary Committee testimony where she alleged that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.
Jerry Lawler told TMZ that he got backlash from fans on social media and got hate mail for attending the rally.
“We were asked by some people to go to the rally, and I went and unbelievably received from some social media some actual hate mail just for going to the rally of Donald Trump.”
He clarified that he wasn’t there to support Trump, he just went there to “see a fellow WWE Hall of Famer.”
Lawler was also asked if he thinks Trump would return to the ring once his presidency is over. Lawler said he wouldn’t doubt it as Trump “did pretty good the first time.”
