----Charges were officially filed this morning against Jerry Lawler. Lawler was charged with assault charges stemming from the incident at Sam’s Town last Friday night. Jerry Lawler allegedly punched “The Big Cheese” Sal Corrente more than once and then yelled at me, “You stupid mother fucker, don't you ever hit a fan.” Lawler had believed that Sal, who had been hit by a fan, had retaliated and hit the fan back. Eyewitnesses at the show believe that Sal did not hit the fan, but there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that Lawler did hit Sal.

----This could be a landmark case in this crazy world of professional wrestling. A business that is suppose to be worked to the mark so he believes it is real, but when it is real then it is considered assault. Jerry Lawler, who is the color commentator for the number one cable wrestling show in the country [and sometimes #1 cable show in the country], will face criminal charges in the state of Mississippi.

----The court date is scheduled for August 1, 2007, but only if papers are served to Lawler before that date. Lawler is scheduled to wrestle on the July 20, 2007 Sam’s Town Memphis Wrestling show and Mississippi authorities are expected to serve Lawler the papers that night.

----I will keep everyone updated as soon as I hear anything else.
