"Lawler" was a wrestler for many years, including in the seventies and eighties, and among other things he participated in the movie "Man on the Moon" with Jim Carrey - in which he played himself as a wrestler who was the rival of the comedian Andy Kaufman, in confrontations between the two that drew quite a few headlines.

Lawler even slapped Kaufman in the face during a live broadcast on David Letterman's talk show, but after the comedian's death it became clear that it was a staged prank and that the two had actually been good friends all these years.
