Yep. We're behind. I've been reading twitter and apparently he's breathing on his own at the hospital.

It kills me to have to ask a question like this, but do we know for sure whether or not this was legit?

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

Oh it was legit. Cole was near tears when he first was reporting on it and looked extremely concerned and worried all through the rest of the show. He also made it pretty clear that it was not part of tonight's entertainment.

Additionally, there was no footage shown of any of it which would be odd for WWE and I don't know that "Lawler collapsed in his chair" is much of a storyline. I know where you're coming from though because it can be hard to separate this stuff sometimes when characters have their backs broken and what not all the time as part of the story.

The only other time I've heard those words uttered on WWF/E programming was at Over the Edge '99. And Bret Hart was the guest host tonight.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

Yep. Which has made it eerie. Mr. Adventure is right....it took place during the match, and the camera went a couple of times near the announce table but didn't show any footage, you could see the front row of the crowd though turn their heads to look at what was going on and someone was talking to Cole then they started chanting Jerry's name a bit.

Also, I've been checking around, and I don't think I would have found the story on so many websites not connected to the WWE if it weren't true. Damn. Hope he indeed pulls through.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

The entire show was pretty good...that was an incredible promo between Punk/Bret/Cena. Finally some emotion from Cena.

I think the last update we got was that Jerry's conditioned had stabilized, which is obviously encouraging news.

Cena was good and I'm not really a fan but they've made Punk a bit weak of late. Is he like Samson and all his power in his greasy hair?

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

RAW was incredibly surreal without commentary. For anyone who truly follows wrestling/sports entertainment, it's easy to tell what is or is not scripted, and this was as real as real can be. I love Jerry Lawler and seriously hope and pray that he is okay. It is very encouraging news that Lawler's condition had stabilized, but stabilized doesn't mean he's out of the woods.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

The word online seems to be that Lawler suffered a heart attack. When people saw him on a stretcher back stage they'd thought a brawl of some kind had broken out, the entire locker room was asked to clear out for the EMT's.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

Say what you will about Michael Cole's on-air persona and character, but it could not have been easy trying to continue to do his job in the midst of Lawler's medical crisis. It's remarkable that he managed to act like everything was normal through the remainder of the Kane/Bryan vs. PTP match and the Del Rio/Tyson Kidd match that followed.
