“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.
