Jerry Lawler Collapses: WWE Announcer Received CPR, Rushed To Hospital During RAW
Commentator Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack Monday during a live broadcast of WWE's "Monday Night Raw" in Montreal.
The 62-year-old Lawler, nicknamed "The King," was stricken as he and announcing partner Michael Cole were providing commentary during a tag-team match featuring Kane and Daniel Bryan versus The Prime Time Players.
Midway through the match, the commentary suddenly stopped and snoring sounds could be heard. In the background of one TV shot, Lawler could be briefly glimpsed slumping over in his chair as several people in the stands turn their attention to the announcers' table.
