WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler continues to recover in a hospital in Montreal, Canada, after suffering a heart attack during Monday’s Raw broadcast.

Lawler’s family members are with him, including son and former WWE performer Brian Christopher Lawler, who released a statement Tuesday evening concerning his father’s condition. Though stable, the concern now is whether he suffered brain damage following the heart attack.

His message reads: “Ok, here’s the latest real update. Lauren and I are here at the hospital in Montreal. He does not look good at all. He is responsive to questions that he is asked which is very good. His sedation and breathing support are being lowered slowly right now. He was shocked a total of 7 times at the arena and underwent a balloon stint to open up a clogged artery when he arrived at hospital. Everyone out there needs to say a special prayer for his brain at this point, please. Tests on his brain will not be available until the morning. One of us two will keep all you guys informed as we know more.”

Stacy Carter, Lawler’s former wife, remains optimistic on “The King.” She tweeted late Tuesday night, “Gonna try to get some sleep. Been a long 24 plus hours. I just know there will be some good news about @jerrylawler ‘s condition tomorrow!!!”

    Man what u mean prayer won’t work? Prayer will indeed works because prayer works wonders and makes miracles. With tons of people around the world praying for the king a miracle WILL HAPPEN.

    Centerman: prayers won’t help, yet you mention moral support. They’re not exclusive, you know.

    regarding the brain damage hopefully he doesnt have any that would be terrible news to hear. many may remember fabrice muamba who had a heart attack/black out playing football for bolton, he was dead for a total of 78 minutes before he was breathing on his own, but he suffered very minimal brain damage so theres hope yet for jerry

  • k.mccarthy

  • Tombstone

    I pray for Jerry “The King” Lawler to make a complete recovery. We love you and cant wait to have you back on raw Jerry.

  • Bawb

    The fact that Brian says he’s responsive to questions being asked but it “does not look good at all” is terrible and could mean that while he gets what’s going on, a number of things could be wrong with him that Brian doesn’t want to delve into yet. Even though Lawler is responsive, it could be in the least possible way/limited movement. This is awful.

    Get well soon, King…

  • art

    Im hoping he has no brain damage & wwe lets him take as much time he needs…

  • Kyle

    I hope that by Friday the King climbs out of that bed and that when the doc goes to stop him from leaving the hospital Jerry is able to pile drive him. Good luck King!! We are pulling for you!!
