Source: JR's BBQJim Ross posted a length blog about Jerry "The King" Lawler and his heart attack on RAW last night. During the blog, Ross noted that Lawler was "extremely lucky" to be at a WWE event when the event occurred, where he was provided with immediate medical attention.
"Based on the information that I have, Jerry was extremely lucky to have been at a WWE event when his attack occurred," Ross wrote. "The immediate care that the trained professionals provided Jerry likely saved his life.
"I shutter to think what the outcome would have been if Jerry had been wrestling on one of the indy shows that he was often booked. Heck, even driving to the arena or sitting in a restaurant might have proven fatal based on the hand that The King was dealt in Montreal Monday evening."
Ross also gave an update on Lawler's condition.
"The last report that I received is that Jerry was in stable condition and getting excellent cardio care in a Montreal hospital," he noted. "All of Jerry's vital signs are stable according to WWE.com. This is the information that we need to hear at this time and is positive. Tomorrow is another day and, God willing, will be an even better day for The King.
"It might be a few days before all the needed medical information on Jerry's condition is processed but because he got immediate care from WWE doctors and EMTS, the King of Memphis chances of recovering seems good."
Ross also discussed his relationship with Lawler, the superb job Michael Cole did during the broadcast and much more. You can check out the full blog by clicking here.
