Wrestling Legend Jerry Lawler Suffers Heart Attack During Live WWE Show

Quote:

Wrestling legend and World Wrestling Entertainment commentator Jerry “The King” Lawler was rushed to the hospital after he collapsed and suffered a heart attack at a live televised show.
The WWE issued a statement Monday night after “Raw” went off the air in Montreal: “Jerry “The King” Lawler suffered a heart attack while commentating during last night’s broadcast of Monday Night Raw in Montreal. We are hopeful Jerry makes a full recovery and returns to WWE in the near future. Our thoughts are with Jerry and his family.”
Broadcast partner Michael Cole told the viewers that the situation was “serious,” but Lawler was breathing on his own.
“This is not part of tonight’s entertainment,” Cole said. “This is a real-life situation.”
During a tag-team match, Cole and Lawler’s voices became absent from the telecast. Fans in the audience began to rise from their seats and direct their attention to the broadcast table at ringside while the cameras remained focused on the action in the ring.
Cole resumed announcing the match before informing fans of the situation later in the evening.
Cole said Lawler fell out of his chair and doctors rushed to the announcer’s table before a stretcher carried Lawler to the backstage area where he received CPR. Cole said Lawler was responding well to tests and would be given a CT scan in the hospital, and “in typical Jerry Lawler fashion, he’s fighting hard.”
Lawler’s ex-wife Stacy Carter said online this morning that he had a procedure performed this morning.
“He had a stint & a balloon put in. Right now he is still heavily sedated. Will update when I know more,” Carter tweeted today.
Lawler, 62, who primarily does announcing work for the company, does occasionally step into the ring to wrestle. Lawler became briefly involved in a match earlier in the program before returning to do commentary.
Lawler became a star in wrestling during the 1970s and 1980s in his hometown of Memphis, Tenn. He received mainstream attention after his scripted feud with comedian Andy Kaufman during the 1980s. Lawler played himself in the 1999 Kaufman biopic, “Man on the Moon.”
Lawler was inducted into the WWE’s Hall of Fame in 2007.

Holy sh*t, so glad he came through. Is it possible that all the travelling has started to affect his health?

It happened during the event? Damn.

I used to love watching wrestling as a kid and I was a big Owen Hart fan, that really sucked when he died during the event, hope King's okay I loved him and good ol' JR back in the day.

He wrestled earlier in the show and seemed fine, but years of ring abuse, travel etc etc is gonna take the strain on the heart of a 62 year old. Plus we all know his love of "puppies", that can't do him much good!

Get well real quick King...legend in every sense of the word!

Imagine if the fans thought he was putting on an act as part of the script or something.

Hope he gets well soon!

To be honest, I just think he faked it because the Primetime Players are that bad.

He doesn't really strike me as the guy who's doing steroids. At least anymore.

I would say that at least 95% of Pro wrestlers have been on the roids at some point.

As the saying goes, "We pay when old for the excesses of youth".

tommydervan has a little shameless behaviour in the past
that really sucks. Worse yet is it was during the event. It is always strange when "real injuries" take place at a staged event. Such a strange thing to now know whether a real life emergency is staged or someones real struggle with life and death
