WWE issued the following statement at 12:20 p.m. EST concerning Jerry Lawler’s condition on Tuesday morning after suffering a heart attack during Monday’s Raw broadcast:
“As of this morning, Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler is in a cardiac care unit and all his vital signs are stable. WWE will provide additional information as it becomes available. We continue to wish Jerry all the best for a full recovery.”
Lawler’s ex-wife, Stacy Carter, stated Tuesday morning via Twitter that he is “heavily sedated” after a stint and balloon was inserted into his heart. Carter added Tuesday afternoon that Lawler did not have open heart surgery.
Minutes before WWE’s statement, Ross stated on Twitter, “Lots of speculation re: my dear friend @JerryLawler. He’s stable & being expertly cared for in Montreal following heart attack. Stable=good.”
