The King of Memphis failed in his attempt to become Mayor of Memphis

While Jerry Lawler is the undisputed King of Wrestling in Memphis, he had his sights set on the mayoral crown of the city in 1999, making himself one amongst 15 candidates for the position. His campaign platforms were the classic everyman promises of better education, less traffic and crime, more parks and lower taxes.

Lawler finished third in the election, but it was a distant third as he managed to garner a meagre 11-percent of the vote.
