Yesterday, WWE officially released “It’s Good To Be The King: The Jerry Lawler Story” on DVD and Blu-ray formats – have you got your copy yet?

As of writing, the Blu-ray edition has been removed from WWE’s official site, as you can see here on WWEShop.com, which may indicate that they sold out of their initial numbers.
But, if you are able to get your hands on the Blu-ray, here’s what it looks like…
Thanks to WDN reader Eddie Austin for sharing the photos!
