Jerry Lawler Getting Criticism Over Comment During Austin Theory vs Akira Tozawa Match

Jerry Lawler - Wrestling Examiner

WWE Hall of Famer and current WWE announcer Jerry “The King” Lawler is getting some criticism after last night’s WWE RAW, which actually has him trending on Twitter. Why? Well, he referred a spot between Austin Theory and Akira Tozawa as a “Ramen Noodle Moonsault.”

After a diving senton by Tozawa, Lawler said,

“Looked like a Ramen Noodle Moonsault.”

A short while after Lawler’s comment, NXT Superstar Rachael Evers posted on Twitter,

“Just a casual reminder that being a racist is not ok. Thanks for listening to my Ted talk. Have a great night.”

Twitter blew up last night with several fans taking exception and criticizing Lawler’s on-air commentary, which several saw as racially offensive.

Jerry Lawler, who is 70 years old, has continued to work from home as a live broadcaster for Monday Night Raw during the COVID-19 pandemic.
