In a relatively happy ending to last month’s story, which saw Jerry Lawler and his fiancee arrested for domestic assault, with Lawler immediately receiving an indefinite suspension from WWE as a result, the charges against both have officially been dropped. The attorney for Lawler stated that the whole incident was “a big misunderstanding and won’t happen again”, and it appears as if both Lawler and his fiancee will see the charges completely expunged from their records.

WWE has issued a release which states that Lawler has been immediately re-instated from his suspension, due to the resolution of his legal issues. Lawler is expected to resume his duties as color commentator on Smackdown as early as this week.
