Kudos to Michael Cole

Cole keeps his cool

It's Tuesday afternoon and I am finally getting a chance to watch the September 10th edition of Monday Night Raw.  The latest update from WWE is that Jerry "the King" Lawler remains in stable condition after suffering a heart attack during the live broadcast.

Michael Cole remained calm, cool, and collected throughout the ordeal.  My hat is off to him for his strength during the situation.  Of course on camera Cole and the King are rivals at the broadcast table and in the ring, but in real life the two are friends.  They're a team and have a partnership that has now endured the unthinkable.

I've been a huge critic of Cole's but the way he conducted himself Monday night should be commended.  He fought back the emotions to help the viewers at home feel more at ease.  No one knew for sure what was happening, as I'm sure Cole was in the same boat, only getting information over his headset.

You never know what's going to happen on live television, especially in the world of wrestling.  Thank you Michael Cole for showing strength and courage.  Thank you to the other WWE superstars, referees, announcers, and other staff for continuing on with the show.  When a friend and colleague goes down in front of your eyes, it's not easy to carry on in front of thousands of fans in attendance and millions more watching at home.  And finally, get well soon King.  We want to see you back on Raw when you're back on your feet again.
