WWE commentator Jerry “The King” Lawler released from hospital
Commentator and semi-retired WWE wrestler Jerry “The King” Lawler has just been released from a Montreal hospital after suffering from a mild heart attack last week during the taping of “Monday Night Raw.”
According to reports, WWE released a statement about the current condition of the wrestling legend, saying: “Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler has been released from a Montreal medical facility and will be heading home in the next several days.”
The statement continues, “We continue to wish Jerry all the best, and we look forward to him returning to WWE in the future.”
As previous reports have stated, Lawler collapsed due to a heart attack at the announcer’s table at Bell Centre in Montreal during a WWE event. He still wrestles and even took part in a tag-team match before joining broadcast partner Michael Cole ringside for the rest of the program.
As of the moment, there is still no word on when or if Lawler plans to return to the announcer’s booth.
The wrestler is known to have held 168 championships throughout his career. Overall, Lawler has held more championships than any other current WWE wrestler, though he has never won any WWE championships since joining the company.
