Jerry Lawler will be back on WWE TV one day.
When that is, I have no idea. But Lawler himself has stated that he hopes to return at the SmackDown taping in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee on Oct. 16.
I doubt that will lead to his full-time return just yet, however, and even when Lawler does come back after suffering that life-threatening heart attack, the WWE is going to have to start preparing for a future without him.
Lawler is 62 years old and is a lot closer to the end of his career than he is the beginning, so I think it's absolutely imperative that the WWE begins grooming his replacement, whether he'll be back anytime soon.
The obvious question, though: Who will that replacement be?
Well, here are 10 stars who I think could eventually replace Jerry Lawler on commentary (listed in order from least likeliest to likeliest, in my opinion).
