Jerry Lawler Suffers Real Life Heart Attack Commentating Live WWE Raw Event

I grew up listening to Jerry “The King” Lawler commentating the WWE back when it was the WWF, and my thoughts are with him now after hearing that he suffered a heart attack during a live episode of the WWE Raw last night.

Many may have thought it was part of the show, but Lawler’s co-commentator Michael Cole, made it clear that was not the case during the episode:

“This is not part of tonight’s entertainment,” Cole said. “This is a real-life situation.”

It happened during a tag team match when Cole and Lawler suddenly went quiet with their commentary. Lawler reportedly fell out of his chair and was administered CPR backstage. Cole said that “in typical Jerry Lawler fashion, he’s fighting hard.”

Lawler is a 40-year veteran of the ring at 62 years old, and occasionally steps in to wrestle, not just commentate. Thoughts are with his family as hopefully he can make a speedy recovery.
