Jerry 'The King' Lawler

In Cardiac Care Unit

'Vital Signs are Stable'

EXCLUSIVE

Jerry 'The King' Lawler's vital signs are stable ... and he seems to be making progress in his recovery after suffering a heart attack on live TV during a WWE event Monday night.

A rep for the WWE tells TMZ ... "As of this morning, Jerry 'The King' Lawler is in a cardiac care unit and all his vital signs are stable."

The org. notes, "WWE will provide additional information as it becomes available. We continue to wish Jerry all the best for a full recovery.”

Lawler's ex-wife Stacy Carter has been providing updates on the wrestler's condition on Twitter -- saying he underwent surgery last night and had a "stint & a balloon put in."

Carter says Jerry is still heavily sedated.

As we previously reported, 62-year-old Lawler suffered the heart attack roughly 30 minutes after he finished wrestling during a "Monday Night Raw" performance in Montreal ... and was rushed to a local hospital.

I wish it was Gregory Shane Helms (a egotistical steroid using drunk driver who hate his fans) instead of the king. Get well soon Jerry.

The King - part of the best "work" ever. His takeout of Andy Kaufmann was just a briliant combination of wrestling and show biz. The way that she literally slapped down Kaufman on David Letterman, Andy Kaufman calling himself the Inter-Gender World Champion, God it was brilliant.
Get well King, we need you.

His ex wife means well I am sure but he had a "stent" (not a stint) and it IS a balloon like device which opens the arteries.
Get well soon.

The correct verbage for what he has had done is he had a balloon run thru the artery to clear it, and a Stent placed to keep the artery open. My husbamd has 13 stents. Not being a smart ass, just want everyone to understand what the King had done. Get better Soon King
