Jerry Lawler's thoughts on his first mania match, similarites to Andy Kaufman fued

Some highlights:

-"Would I have preferred for it to be a wrestler? Maybe at first. But now, looking back on the way this has all unfolded and the way it's going to be now, I couldn't have had a better opponent. Especially now that it's so reminiscent of the actual Andy Kaufman feud. I mean here, just like Andy, I'm going in the ring against a guy who's never competed," Lawler told Matt Fowler of

-"I just had Vince McMahon tell me, not that long ago, he said, 'Man, you can't imagine. I've never told anyone this but I was actually jealous of the fact that you got to do what you did with Andy Kaufman because I knew that we had the opportunity to do it first and we turned it down. And then all of a sudden you guys were on TV and in New York. You got to be on David Letterman and Saturday Night Live. It just blew up.'"

What does everyone think? Is Cole the new Kaufman? Is their match going to steal the show? Is there ANY way Cole is leaving without a neck brace?
