Did Lawler have a heart attack or something on air?

Unfortunately, it's not a work. Something happened to Jerry, whether it was a heart attack or a seizure. Latest report is he's breathing on his own, which is obviously a good sign. Prayers are with Jerry.

It is confirmed to be legit.

Wow, I was watching Raw at my local gym and the time and I left around the same time Jerry collapsed, then I came back home finding that the match between Mysterio and Rhodes had no announcers.

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!

That last segment was the only part I saw, but it was amazing. Cena and Punk will both go down as legends. They will be up there with HBK and The Hitman

All Bret did was just stood there smiling, proudly IMO, and helped Punk becoming a full-fledged heel once again.

AND considering the serious situation they were in at that moment and they still went through like that. Yep, both of them are guaranteed HoFs.

shit was surreal. silent commentary and everything. literally couldn't get into raw from that point though that ending promo was really good.

there's a report out that he was clinically dead for 20 minutes. not sure if that's true, but that's obviously not good for the brain because of limited oxygen (even if they had him hooked up). the brain doesn't take long to overheat or suffer ischemic scarring and tissue damage, thus killing brain cells.

if a report comes out that he's talking coherently and moving okay, i'll feel much better. this guy's schedule is way too busy. at the very least, this should be a wake up call that he needs to stop wrestling among other factors. dude's 62 and shouldn't have too many money problems. time to hang it up. beyond time.

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

This reminds me a lot of Patrice Muamba incident, but the clear difference is age.

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.
