He noted that his heart attack was probably hereditary since he's never drank or smoked, and that his father had died of a heart attack.
Lawler discussed all the support from people all around the world. He said that there was no permanent damage, and he was asked to change his diet and exercise more often. He noted that it was a good sign that the doctor said that he wouldn't need to see him again for six weeks.
Lawler was asked if he intended to wrestle again, to which he replied, "absolutely." He did admit that it was way too early to think about when he would return to action. He noted that all the wrestlers have been calling him and showing their support, including "guys like Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair that aren't in WWE anymore." He noted that wrestling isn't as "physically demanding as it seems," and that while it is physical, you're not risking your life every time you step in the ring.
Lawler admitted to having some chest "discomfort" in Aruba the weekend before. He said that it didn't last more than 4 or 5 minutes, and he wrote it off as indigestion.
He discussed being at RAW the day of the heart attack. He said he felt "perfectly fine" all day and that there were no warning signs. He remembers going out to the announce booth right before the show started. He then said that he remembered the opening segment with CM Punk, John Cena and Bret Hart vividly, but that's it. He said he doesn't remember anything after that, including his own match.
Lawler said that he didn't see any "bright lights" or "dead relatives" during the ordeal, and said that Michael Cole joked that it was because he was "heading in the other direction."
Lawler finished by saying that his blood pressure is the lowest that it's been in his entire life.
