JR emphasized that the WWE Hall of Famer still has hurdles to overcome. Speaking on his Grilling JR Podcast, Ross shared:
“I talked to Lawler just the other day. He’s still struggling with his health. He’s got good doctors, and they think they have identified many of the issues, but he’s not out of the woods yet in terms of achieving a good level of health.”
Ross further described their conversation, noting that Lawler’s voice starts off weak but grows stronger as they talk and reminisce, sharing laughter and stories.
“As always when we talk, his voice starts off a little bit weak and then it gets stronger as he talks and we laugh and we tell stories with each other.”
