Smith Hart, brother of WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart, says he was told by a friend backstage at Monday's Raw at Centre Bell in Montreal, Quebec, Canada that Jerry Lawler was "clinically dead" for twenty minutes before being revived by a defibrillator.

He wrote on Twitter, "According to my friend Jeremy Prophet who was backstage at RAW, Jerry was clinically dead for 20 min before being brought back by defibrilat."

According to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, clinical death is the medical term for cessation of blood circulation and breathing, which are two necessary criteria to sustain life. This occurs when the heart stops beating in a regular rhythm and is also known as cardiac arrest.

Hart noted that "it has been confirmed that Jerry did suffer a heart attack." Since medical personnel were at ringside, Lawler was able to receive immediate treatment.

According to Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer, Lawler remains in stable condition. He is breathing on his own and his heart is beating on its own, but is considered not out of danger.

Damn luckily it happened at the event. If it had happened when he was alone he probably wouldnt still be alive

That's what people are saying, like if it happened 3-4 hours later he probably would have been back in his hotel room there's a chance he wouldn't have been found until morning.

Cole looked so messed up when trying to inform the people at home. He even mentioned, "This has nothing to do with tonight's entertainment."

I've watched wrestling for a long time, more on that off lately. I was watching the PPV where Owen died, and it was one of the most surreal feelings and situations I had ever been a part of, because it was all unfolding live.

I had DVR'd RAW last night and while watching, I had that same feeling when King went down. Rewinding the recording, I was disturbed at the couple of shots you could see where he was struggling in the background, and you could hear him trying to breath on the headset.

I'm not sure I really paid attention to the rest of the show other than the few updates from Cole on his condition. It was odd listening to the show with no commentary. Hopefully King will make a full recovery. Scary stuff, but good that it happened where medical help was readily available.

Former WCW and WWE Superstar is close to signing a legends deal with the WWE. In addition to signing a contract with the company, a Goldberg DVD is expected to be released in the summer of 2013. ItIt's unknown at this time if Goldberg will have any further involvement with the company beyond the DVD project.

I want to see a Goldberg vs. Undertaker.

Thank goodness medical teams have saved him so far. Wish Jerry to pull it through.

BTW, the last segment turned out to be incredible. Cena somehow turned the always-hostile-against-Cena Montreal crowd to his side and also did the opposite on Punk, who was cheered earlier. Great go-home show ending!

Watched the back and forth between Punk and Cena and they both did it so well you legitimately thought they hated each others guts. Sold it very well.

Get well Jerry.

**** man Jeff needs to come back to the WWE. Having to leave because of several injuries sucked. I was the biggest Hardy fan. That storyline he had with Orton leading up to the 08 Royal Rumble was amazing. Anyone remember that 30 foot Swanton? Or the amazing whisper in the wind off the steel cage? It sucks that his three title reigns lasted a month at most.

Nah, Jeff needs to stay where he is. He wouldn't get the kind of push he's getting in TNA that he would in WWE.

Simply put Jeff just isn't reliable enough to be ANY companies top star or main draw. He's proven this time & time & time again.

I'm so on the fence when it comes to Jeff, I loved all those TLC matches but i just don't feel like he's that good of a worker unless he's doing some high flying spots.

I don't think Jeff does a good job of "telling the story" during his matches, which for me really makes it hard to get excited about anything he does, because if his match doesn't have Tables, Ladders, Chairs his matches are just usually a bunch of high spots with no substance.

agreed. after his victory road appearance, i don't think he's going to get another shot to be the top guy. too much baggage, too much risk. and ya, his matches do lack quite a bit of psychology, though his matches with angle have been mostly good. i kind of attribute that much more to angle in the end....

anyway, on an unrelated note, no brain damage for jerry lawler and that's obviously a good sign. looks like he'll be making close to a full recovery

I love to see a feud between Ryback and the Miz. I think it's time for the WWE to give him a title.
