Backstage Reason Why WWE Brought Back Jerry Lawler for Raw Commentary

WWE initially had disallowed Jerry Lawler from attending their TV tapings at the Performance Center due to his age and the high-risk group he belongs to (heart condition, including a near fatal heart attack). Despite this, Lawler himself reportedly requested to travel and be a part of Raw this week according to the Observer Newsletter and WWE ended up approving it, albeit to massive criticism. Meanwhile, Vince McMahon – who is actually four years older than Lawler – continues to be present at every WWE taping at the Performance Center, though he has no “underlying conditions” that would make him high-risk apart from his age.
