Pray for Lawler

Jerry "the King" Lawler

Because of my work schedule, I go to bed around 8:30 pm CST and missed what happened on Raw Monday night.  Here is the very latest (as of 2:30 am CST) from the Associated Press wire.

MONTREAL (AP) - Professional wrestling commentator Jerry Lawler collapsed during a World Wrestling Entertainment event on Monday night. A statement from the WWE said that Lawler suffered a heart attack at the announcers' table and was taken from the Bell Centre to a hospital.

Broadcast partner Michael Cole addressed the television audience and said that the situation is "serious," but that Lawler was breathing on his own. "Jerry "The King" Lawler suffered a heart attack while commentating during last night's broadcast of Monday Night Raw in Montreal," the WWE said in its statement. "We are hopeful Jerry makes a full recovery and returns to WWE in the near future. Our thoughts are with Jerry and his family."

Though the 62-year-old Lawler occasionally wrestles, he mainly works on WWE broadcasts as a commentator.

Lawler of course wrestled earlier in the night.  We here at My 1-2-3 Cents, From the Rafters Radio, and All American Pro Wrestling pray for a speedy recovery for the King.  He was a guest on our radio show a few weeks ago.  Also, props to Michael Cole for keeping a cool head during all this.  I can't imagine what he had to be going through as well.  Pray for Lawler!
