PLAYERS: Jerry Lawler

Via Larry Brown Sports:

Jerry Lawler is still in Montreal recovering from his recent heart attack, but it appears he is doing well. Earlier this week, Lawler’s ex-wife, Stacy Carter, informed us that doctors had taken ‘The King’ out of sedation and that he was responsive. However, there has been some fear that he could have brain damage. All told, he is very lucky to even be alive.

As you can see from the video above that Black Sports Online shared with us, “The King” took a few moments this week from his hospital room to thank the WWE community for its support. He even snuck in a funny joke about having more wires hooked up to him than AT&T, which is a great sign for WWE fans.

The fact that Lawler hasn’t lost his sense of humor is certainly a relief.

  • Glad to hear hes doing well. Take care of your health, it doesnt just happen to someone else. Heart and stroke are the leading cause of death. You really are what you eat.
  • I have been a die hard fan of wrestling for over 35 years. I was around and watching Jerry Lawler and Andy Kaufman go at it. I do not appreciate the "haters" that are constanly preaching about how fake wrestling is. Jerry Lawler is living proof that wrestling is good. Wrestlers perform up to 200 times a year. They only other sport that comes close to that is baseball. Raw is the longest running cable show there is period. I dont feel that it is up to us, even as fans, to decide when a wrestler should hang up their boots. If a wrestler still feels that they can entertain let them. The
    McMahons and the "shotcallers for WWE should have a say on whether or not wrestlers get to perform. I love my wrestling and will always watch it, even choosing wrestling before UFC or MMA. That's how I feel about that.
  • Jerry, God bless and take care. You came too far to cash in. Eat well and keep the weight off.
  • get well soon king
