Jerry 'The King' Lawler


'I Feel Like the Bionic Man'

breaking news

Jerry "The King" Lawler
has released a VIDEO from inside his hospital room to show the world the progress he's made since suffering a heart attack earlier this week ... and it's pretty damn impressive.

In the clip, Lawler is standing up and speaking very clearly -- at one point he even cracks a joke about all of the wires connected to his body.

Lawler suffered a major heart attack on live TV in Montreal on Monday night during a taping of WWE's "Monday Night Raw." He's still being monitored in the cardiac unit ... and his recovery is going very well.

62-year-old Lawler closed out his video with a message to the "WWE Universe" ... thanking everyone for the support and well-wishes.

Well, I was wrong about the open chest scar after looking it up: can admit that, still no IV tubes hooked up though and why would it be against me to think it is WWE work? have you seen some of there past Story lines?

Stone cold hung on a cross? The rock smashed by a truck while in an Ambulant? Vince mcmahnon "murdered?" Triple H's arm "broke" by brock lesner? the "katie vick" story line? i mean i don't put nothing past WWE at any time. Heart attack, on 911, while in Montreal with bret heart there.

Angle: Vince still hates bret, take away from his "moment" by making jerry "have a heart attacK" again, its as believable as him really having a heart attack.

Will also say i don't doubt he had a form of medical problem but currently it seems like Work or just wasn't has bad as they made it to sound, no chest scar, no IV tubes hooked up, its either work, or he wanted Vacation.

That video is of a man who has been humbled. You can hear it in the voice.

It's amazing how well he seems to be doing. He was actually dead for a number of minutes. Jerry doesn't drink, smoke or take drugs, never has, and I believe those factors helped him to bounce back quicker. I am relieved to see that he appears to have no brain damage from lack of oxygen. But although his doctor sees "no reason why Jerry shouldn't' wrestle again", I think he should call it quits and be a manager and a commentater. Good luck like this often only strikes once.

I am so glad you are better Mr. Lawler. I was terribly concerned for you. So sad no family was there for you either. Hope someone local came to be with you.
Keep doing better and come home to the WWE Universe!
