WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry Lawler is one of the most beloved pro wrestlers of all time, as he was the voice of many generations. He continues to work as an active pro wrestler even now.
Jerry Lawler has had medical issues over the past several years. This included the time in 2012 where he almost lost his life after suffering a heart attack during an episode of Monday Night RAW. Michael Cole was present during the shocking incident and held down the fort well.
Lawler was rushed to the hospital after having a medical emergency on Monday. He is currently at a hospital in the Fort Myers, Florida, where he owns a condo in the same area.
Yesterday, Ricky Morton took to Twitter today and wished his friend all the best for his health.
Jim Ross tweeted out to say that he spoke with Jerry Lawler.
During a recent episode of “Foley is Pod,” Mick Foley discussed what made Lawler, who was a legend in the Memphis territory and a former AWA World Champion, so successful during his heyday.
“I put a couple things out there on social media talking about, clearly, we all want Jerry to make a full comeback, but also just noting I don’t think people realize just how great he was,” Foley said. “Especially to be a top guy for decades and doing weekly towns. We’ll never see that type of run again. By the time the world got to know Jerry, he had a lot of wear and tear on his body.”
