WWE broadcaster and wrestler Jerry “The King” Lawler appeared more responsive after collapsing ringside during Monday night’s live episode of Raw.

Lawler, who had participated in a tag team match alongside Randy Orton earlier in the show, collapsed at the announcer’s table while commentating the tag team match featuring Daniel Bryan and Kane vs. Darren Young and Titus O’Neil and was taken away on a stretcher. Lawler was backstage at the Centre Bell in Montreal, Quebec, Canada receiving CPR.

“This is not part of the show,” Lawler’s broadcast partner Michael Cole stated at approximately 10:20 p.m. EST.

Lawler was transported to an area hospital where he was receiving oxygen and breathing on his own, according to reports from Cole later on in the telecast. He stated at 10:55 p.m. EST that he appeared more responsive and was reacting to the lights in his eyes.

As the broadcast concluded at 11:14 p.m. EST, Cole stated that Lawler’s condition had stabilized. “He is breathing on his own. His heart is beating on its own,” said Cole.

He is now being prepared for a CAT scan of his chest and head.
