During that match, Ziggler, who Lawler called "an amazing young talent," did a spot where he dropped ten straight elbows on Lawler's chest. Lawler said that Ziggler was landing with all of his weight, and joked that he remembered thinking, "jeez, this guy's trying to kill me."
Lawler went back to commentary and collapsed at the announcers table during the next match. Lawler said that he remembered watching the match and blinking his eyes, and it was "literally two days later."
"Honestly, and I talked to my cardiologist about it, and he said, 'absolutely, the trauma to my chest from those elbows could have been hard enough to knock your heart out of rhythm,'" Lawler said. "It would start slowly, and then get more and more and more out of rhythm until it just seized up."
