The medical staff in Montreal should be applauded for their fast reaction to Jerry Lawler’s heart attack. If not for him getting immediate medical attention he probably wouldn’t be with us today.
We also wouldn’t be hearing this great news about his recovery.
According to Joe Cooper, who is Lawler’s best friend Lawler does not have brain damage as a result of his heart attack Monday night.
The wrestling icon has been stabilized in a Montreal hospital. Family members tell us he is heavily sedated after having heart surgery Tuesday, but he is responding to them and is even squeezing his girlfriend’s hand.
“He was shocked a total of seven times at the arena and underwent a balloon stint to open up a clogged artery when he arrived at hospital,” his son posted on Facebook. “Everyone out there needs to say a special prayer for his brain at this point, please.”
It reportedly took 15 minutes for paramedics to resuscitate the wrestler.
Lawler was dead and medical personnel brought him back to life.
Praying that he makes a full recovery and is back at the RAW announcing desk where be belongs.
