The WWE had one very high profile last month when Roman Reigns failed a drugs test and violated the company's Wellness Policy. 

Well, there was one suspension that fans may have forgotten about in the wake of the Reigns controversy that stunned absolutely everyone. 

Jerry Lawler, the former Memphis wrestling superstar and now colour commentator on SmackDown, was arrested last month following a domestic violence incident with his fiancee and was suspended by the WWE. That punishment has now been lifted.

Lawler's Back

According to Wrestling Inc, following the dismissal of the charges against Lawler and his fiancee, the WWE confirmed to them that Jerry would be back in the fold.

"Jerry Lawler's legal matter has been resolved and his suspension has been lifted, effective immediately," read the statement.

Big Misunderstanding

According to Lawler's lawyer, it was all a big misunderstanding, which The King backed up in his comments.

"We got into a little bit of a shouting match and then she wanted to leave," Lawler said about the incident.

"I was not going to let her leave in the car, because she was just not in any condition to drive. She got more and more upset, she called 9-1-1 and scratched my face in the process. The police came in and said that this was a domestic dispute and that they were 'going to have to take both of you guys downtown'."

"It's just an unfortunate situation. Nobody was hit and nobody was hurt. It's just something that happened as a result of drinking too much," Lawler said.

With the brand split coming up, it will be interesting to see where Lawler ends up, on Raw or SmackDown.
