Lawler's family members are with him, including son and former WWE performer Brian Christopher Lawler, who released a statement Tuesday evening concerning his father's condition. Though stable, the concern now is whether he suffered brain damage following the heart attack.
His message reads: "Ok, here's the latest real update. Lauren and I are here at the hospital in Montreal. He does not look good at all. He is responsive to questions that he is asked which is very good. His sedation and breathing support are being lowered slowly right now. He was shocked a total of 7 times at the arena and underwent a balloon stint to open up a clogged artery when he arrived at hospital. Everyone out there needs to say a special prayer for his brain at this point, please. Tests on his brain will not be available until the morning. One of us two will keep all you guys informed as we know more."
Stacy Carter, Lawler's former wife, remains optimistic on "The King." She tweeted late Tuesday night, "Gonna try to get some sleep. Been a long 24 plus hours. I just know there will be some good news about @jerrylawler 's condition tomorrow!!!"
