One True King

June 13, 1993

Soon after Lawler arrives in WWE, he interrupts Bret Hart’s coronation ceremony at King of the Ring, taking exception to Hart’s victory. Although Lawler attempts to avoid his bout with The Hit Man at SummerSlam, WWE President Jack Tunney forces him to compete. Hart defeats Lawler, but the official reverses the decision after The Hit Man refuses to release The Sharpshooter. The flawed victory leads Lawler to declare himself the “Undisputed King.”
