As reported, according to fans in attendance at tonight’s RAW from Montreal, Jerry Lawler collapsed during commentary during the Prime Time Players vs. Kane & Daniel Bryan match. He had what was described as appearing like a seizure.
Michael Cole and Lawler both went silent on commentary and several fans at ringside looked concerned. Cole resumed commentary after a few minutes but it was clear he was shaken up. Paramedics were attending to Lawler at ringside before the commercial.
Earlier in the night, Lawler competed in a tag match.
Lawler may have thrown up but that’s not confirmed. He fell off his chair and seven or eight people rushed to the scene and lifted him up and took him backstage. Cole’s face looked like he saw a ghost.
Cole confirmed that this was “not a part of tonight’s entertainment”, and that the medics are currently performing CPR backstage. PWMania will keep you updated on this story as more information becomes available. Our thoughts and prayers are with “The King”, Jerry Lawler.
UPDATE: Jerry Lawler is breathing on his own and has been taken to a local hospital. PWMania.com will keep you updated!
