edge-2

- WWE Hall of Famer Edge commented on his surgery that took place on Thursday:

“Btw I don’t know how anyone else could ‘report’ it, but surgery went well #guessoneofmyfriendsisastoogelol.”

- Jim Ross recently spoke with The Miami Herald about Jerry Lawler:

“I speak to him, and when we don’t talk, we text about everyday or two. He is doing great. He’s feeling great. He’s the luckiest man in the world, quite frankly. I don’t know where else he could have been, unless he was actually sitting in a doctor’s office, when that heart attack occurred, that he would be alive today.”

“Thank God WWE has two full-time physicians who travel with the team, and Dr. Sampson was right there at ringside, watching the matches in the secured corral area, timekeeper area as I understand it, and as soon as he saw Jerry come out of his chair and fall to the floor… So Michael Cole got their attention.”

“Good thing for Michael Cole doing that because I’m sure they didn’t know and thought it could be part of a storyline. They wouldn’t know, yea or nay, but Michael with a sense of urgency got the doctor over, and once the doctor saw Jerry had no pulse, he started CPR immediately.”

“The EMTs are in the building, obviously. So I was told Jerry was hit with the [defibrillator] paddle seven times to generate a heartbeat. What I was told by more than one who were there that he was clinically dead for 15 minutes. So it was horrific.”

“I was at home in Norman [Okla.] and watching on TV. I don’t know if I’d ever felt a sense of helplessness. I don’t know how many hundreds of hours Jerry and I have broadcast together and coupled that with all the hundreds of hours we traveled together, it’s like having an older brother.”

- WWE Super SmackDown on Tuesday, November 6th scored a low 1.52 rating on Election Night.
