WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler and his fiancée Lauryn McBride appeared in a Memphis, Tennessee court on Monday for the first time since they were both charged with domestic assault on Friday morning. The judge ordered no communication between the couple and set a July 1 court date.
McBride’s attorney Mark Mesler told WMC-TV that the next hearing will likely be when a course of action is determined. “On that day decisions will get made about whether this case can be settled, whether it can be dropped, whether we are going settle, go to trial or a hearing,” Mesler stated.

Powell’s POV: Lawler and his attorney both declined to comment even though Lawler already spoke with WMC on Friday morning while at the jailhouse. Mesler also noted that the terms set by the judge are “standard bail conditions in a domestic violence case.” As for Lawler’s status with WWE, I would be very surprised if they brought him back before the July 1, as he remains indefinitely suspended by the company.
