Jerry Lawler On The Broken Skull Sessions With "Stone Cold" Steve Austin

Jerry Lawler Reveals Never-Before Told Details Of Infamous Hostile Interaction With Jim Carrey (Video)

As noted, the new episode of “The Broken Skull Sessions” premiered on the WWE Network on Sunday. The new special features WWE Hall Of Fame legend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin sitting down with fellow WWE Hall Of Fame icon Jerry “The King” Lawler for an in-depth, one-on-one career retrospective interview.

On Sunday afternoon, WWE released another “Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions Sneak Peek” video, which features the Memphis Wrestling legend telling “The Texas Rattlesnake” about his hostile dealings with actor Jim Carrey on the set of the Andy Kaufman biopic “Man on the Moon.”

“I called the director off, Milos Forman, who — I mean, you know, he directed One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeus and all these great movies and everything,” Lawler said when telling Austin the story on the new episode of his WWE Network video podcast. “And I asked, Milos, ‘Milos, has this guy not read the script? Surely, does he not realize Andy and I actually in real life were friends?’ And he goes, ‘Oh, Jerry. Jerry. He’s the 800-pound gorilla. What can I do?’”

Lawler continued, “And that was the truth at that time. He was the top draw, he was like The Rock today, he was the top name in Hollywood. And he got it in his head, I don’t know if you call it method acting or whatever, he was going to channel Andy Kaufman. He became Andy Kaufman for these 80 days that we were on the set filming this movie, so it was crazy.”

The official description of the video reads: “Jerry “The King” Lawler tells “Stone Cold” about his tense introduction to Hollywood heavyweight Jim Carrey during the filming of “Man on the Moon.” Watch the full interview on a new episode of The Broken Skull Sessions, available on demand on WWE Network.”
