Jerry Lawler Comments On WWE’s COVID-19 Policy, Testing Positive For The Virus In January

Jerry “The King” Lawler is a veteran of the ‘Rona.

The WWE Hall of Fame legend took to social media on Friday to comment on testing positive for Coronavirus back in January.

Additionally, the longtime pro wrestling veteran commented on the new COVID-19 policy implemented by WWE to combat the global pandemic.

Featured below are the comments from a pair of tweets shared via the official Twitter feed of Jerry Lawler.

“First let me comment on some of the comments after this tweet of mine. The WWE has the same covid policy as MLB. If you’re fully vaccinated, you’re good to go. If not, you must still wear a mask at the event and be tested before an event. Some people question why I waited so long to get vaccinated. It’s because I already had covid back around the first of the year I had antibodies and didn’t feel the need.”

Additionally, “The King” would check back in on his Twitter feed with this one:

“In trying to be brief, my earlier tweet may have given the wrong impression. WWE never forces anyone to be vaccinated. Their new policy is, if you’re fully vaccinated you no longer have to be tested or wear a mask at events. I hate the masks! I love the new WWE policy!”
