Exclusive: Follow Up To Jerry Lawler/Glenn Moore Scam

Last month, Bodyslam.net broke the news that many fans of the “Dinner With The King” podcast were scammed. Jerry Lawler and his co-host Glenn Moore told fans on the podcast that they could commission art from Jerry Lawler among other things. Then Glenn would use the “Dinner With The King” podcast Twitter account to DM fans and sell Jerry’s ring/television worn merchandise.

After the first article was posted, many more fans came forward to share their DM’s and stories about how they too were taken advantage of by Glenn Moore. Soon, the story was featured on WMC5 Action News in Memphis and Jerry Lawler responded. He shared tweets and articles that warned fans not to deal with Glenn, and on a follow up news story, Jerry promised he would make things right with the fans that were scammed, including a pediatric cancer foundation.

Jason Lurie was the main focus of the WMC5 Action News pieces, he commissioned a piece that cost over $1,000 and went as far as getting lawyers involved. Bodyslam has learned that Jason and Jerry had an hour long phone call, clearing the air. Jerry saying he would meet Jason for lunch to discuss what could be done and Jason agreeing to drop his pending lawsuit. The next week Jerry canceled his lunch with Jason.

After finding this out Bodyslam reached out to all victims that we have been in contact with, to see if they had been in touch with Jerry or his fiancee Lauren, who has spoken to some of the victims. It turns out that 10 of the 11 known victims have not spoken to Jerry at all or as recently as July 17th. No reimbursements have been made, or offers to make things right. Below are the names and comments of all but one of the victims who has yet to respond to inquiries.

No contact from Lawler still. During all of this, I have to keep reminding myself that Lawler is an actor. He’s very good at playing the victim role. Should Lawler really have cared about the fans who got victimized, he would have done the right thing in the first place. A paypal refund to each victim would have taken a combined 30 minutes max of effort and everyone could have parted ways. The only reason Lawler cared was because this made the news and cast him in a negative light. Now that it’s off the news, Lawler has forgotten about this once again and he escapes unscathed.

Jerry hasn’t contacted me so far. My statement: I was led to belive I was in a fan community with patreon and fans on twitter, Glenn took advantage of this. Unknowingly the situation he used to pray on me with was something I can relate too. So I was more than happy to help and get something so utterly cool for a fan of Jerry “The King” Lawler’s it in hindsight seemed almost too good to be true. Which it inevitably was. I’m still hurt, disappointed and out of pocket! Still remain a King fan throughout…

@stevendixon123

He has not contacted me and I have not been reimbursed so still out $225. Just glad it wasn’t as much as others I have seen. I have been a lifelong fan of Jerry Lawler and remember watching him on Saturday morning television from wrestling in the Memphis studio. Been trying to give him the benefit of the doubt and understand it was Glenn Moore that screwed everyone over however it would be nice if he would at least reach out to those that got scammed.

I am out $125 for art that was to have been a birthday gift for my daughter in January and will not get that back because PayPal says it has been past the 6 month period. I was also out $100 for the shirts that Glenn tried to sell to everyone and their granny! I did receive a refund of $50 thru PayPal but the other $50 was thru Cash app and they are useless. I did file report with FBI as well.

@DustinBolinRN

Jerry Lawler has not responded to my e-mail. I hope he does the right thing by reimbursing all the victims including myself of what his co-host, Glenn Moore, did during their time working together on the Dinner With The King podcast.

@LetsGoBackToWCW

No contact from Jerry or anyone else (police etc) or reimbursements.

@rhydth

No contact

@OBCOP

Have not heard anything since the July 7th phone call other than a text saying when they return from Cleveland they would fulfill what we talked about over the phone. That was July 17th. Still trying to get reimbursed by PayPal.

@RaeOfHopeFnd Pediatric Cancer Foundation

He did , he replied to my PM on twitter and told me he is getting to me and he is getting in touch with others who have been scammed. He said it looks to be around 20 people. That was July 17 and from i understand nobody has been contacted. I haven’t heard from him since either.

@StevRol

He hasnt said one word to me at all. Like not one single word and no reimbursement as of yet. I dont really have much to say except the silence from him to his fans that were scammed is odd.. It’s just very odd to me. But maybe his lawyers told him that was best, who knows. Us fans that were scammed surely dont know a thing about whats going on. At least I have no clue.

As a longtime Jerry Lawler fan, it hurts to think that someone could be so passive about reaching out to fans that were hurt under his banner. Whether he was involved directly or not, the fact remains that this occurred under his brand and promotion, and someone with the amount of non-contracted time (one pre-show a month and a handful of weekend indie bookings) that Jerry has would allow for ample time to redeem himself in the eyes of his fans. Again and again, excuses and words have rang hollow, come and gone with no action, and no remorse is shown after the fact. I signed up for a co-hosting of the podcast, an original color 8×10 drawing, a phone call (the only thing I received), two shirts, a dinner/lunch, and a Cameo message. Time and time again, I was told the drawing was sitting on his desk to be shipped by Glenn, Jerry’s assistant, or Lauren’s father-in-law. I even drove to Memphis once, to a post office less than a mile from Jerry’s house, to locate an item that had shipped but been lost by the mail service, only to find out it wasn’t the drawing I was promised, but a stock autograph instead. I was told the shirts were going to be mailed next Monday. I was mid-drive TWICE (a several hour trip each direction) when I had my lunches canceled because Jerry forgot and did something else on a whim. I was given the most personal, deeply intimate excuses for Jerry’s delayed action in light of his son’s death. I let it all go because of this, as I’m a father as well. I understand Glenn pocketed the money on a lot of this. However, Jerry’s promises to make fans whole again in light of the scam and then making excuses and going dark feels like exactly what happened time and time again through Glenn, and makes me wonder how much Jerry actually was deflecting doing what was paid for and how much he truly cares about his fans. This was an easy fix. I tweeted WMC and Jerry multiple times to attempt to have this fixed quietly. The fact that WMC refused to cover his failed promises of restitution and Jerry hasn’t bothered to get in touch with anyone is absolutely disappointing. I hope the money and fame were worth it, Mr. Lawler. They say to never meet your idols, and I must say, perhaps they’re right.

Glenn Moore has yet to be found since he went off the grid during the first week of July.

Rae of Hope’s benefit show is this month and they still need help through donations, t-shirt sales or attending the show. They can be reached at

PO Box 2181 Mt. Juliet, TN 37121-2181 https://alisraeofhope.org/ @RaeofHopeFnd are ways to contact the Ali’s Rae of Hope Foundation.

We here at Bodyslam will do our best to let everyone’s voice be heard, if you or someone you know has been scammed by Glenn Moore, there are a couple things you can do to fight back.

File reports/complaints with PayPal or credit cards to try to get that started. Save what info you have but the most important thing is to file a police report in their area. It will then be forwarded to his local PD. You can file a complaint with the FBI Cyber Crimes, or reach out to Jerry Lawler. Only problem with reaching out to Jerry is that there isn’t a surefire way to get ahold of him.
