Jerry King is a former wrestling star and now ringside commentator for the circuit that is in Dick Tracy’s city. In a 2012 story, Junior revealed that he and King have a painting class together. When the crooked and violent wrestler Thunderchild stole money from a charity match and battled the Mole, Dick Tracy and Sam Catchem in the ring, Jerry donned his wrestling outfit and entered the ring. He quickly beat down the law breaking wrestler and knocked him out cold with a pile driver. Thunderchild was then arrested by Dick Tracy.
Jerry King is actually a reference to the famous retired wrestler, Jerry “The King” Lawler.
