Jerry Lawler Suffers Heart Attack During Live WWE Show

Recommended Posts

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. 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."
