Earlier tonight, Jerry “The King” Lawler collapsed at the commentary booth during a match on WWE Monday Night RAW. Medical personal were able to get to him immediately, and throughout the night we were updated on The King’s condition. The last on-air report from Michael Cole was that Jerry Lawler was breathing on his own, and that his heart was beating on it’s own, and that Jerry was being prepped for a CAT scan.
The latest word we’ve had from our sources indicate that the collapse was the result of a heart attack. On behalf of the entire BoredWrestlingFan staff, I’d like to wish Jerry Lawler a speedy recovery. Get well soon, Jerry. Our thoughts are with you.
