After WWE star Jerry Lawler collapsed on Monday’s episode of Raw, many fans were hoping and praying for the best for “The King” after he suffered a recent heart attack during the live broadcast of the show. The good news is that the latest health updates from his employer are very encouraging.
A recent report from WWE.com brings good news as one of Lawler’s friends, Pat Patterson, paid a visit to him at the hospital room in Montreal. Patterson is a fellow WWE Hall of Fame member, and currently works with World Wrestling Entertainment as a creative consultant. He’s 71 years old, and doesn’t get into the ring any more, like Lawler is doing at 9 years younger. The WWE site had the following encouraging remarks from Patterson regarding his friend, Lawler:
“When I walked in there and he saw me in the window, he had a big smile on his face. He was very happy.” Patterson added about Lawler’s road to recovery:
“The King’s outlook is incredibly positive. One of the doctors came by and wanted to take him to a different room for tests. Jerry had no problem getting out of bed and getting into a wheelchair. His sense of humor is there, I made him laugh. He’s doing very good.”
One other thing noted on the health update is that Lawler doesn’t remember a whole lot about the events of Monday night. It’s good news to hear that Lawler is recognizing friends, smiling, and able to laugh. Those are the things, along with all the support he’s receiving from millions of fans, that will truly assist on his road to recovery. Best wishes to The King as he continues to recover from this recent heart attack health scare.
