William Shatner Inducting Jerry Lawler Into Hall Of Fame


Back in 1995, legendary actor William Shatner appeared on Jerry “The King” Lawler’s King’s Court to promote his TV show TekWar. After Lawler threatened to boldly send the megastar where nobody had gone before, Shatner shocked WWE fans by laying “The King” out flat! Now, over a decade later, the two men have patched things up just in time for the two-time Emmy Award winner to step back into action and induct Lawler into the WWE Hall of Fame. “My great claim to fame with WWE is throwing Jerry “The King” Lawler in the ring,” laughed Shatner when WWE.com reached him for comments on this year’s WWE Hall of Fame. “I threw him back then, and now I’ll throw him right into the WWE Hall of Fame!” Best known for his role as Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek, Shatner currently stars on ABC’s hit show Boston Legal.
