– Following Jerry Lawler’s heart attack at RAW last night in Montreal, WWE did not let the fans know that the Pat Patterson Appreciation Night festivities were being postponed until about 10 minutes before the main event segment with CM Punk, Bret Hart and John Cena. They did note that it was postponed but there’s no word yet on when it will take place.
WWE aired three videos throughout the night with comments on Patterson from former and current stars. One fan in attendance noted that nobody there was in the mood to celebrate anything after what happened to Lawler.
– Here are more comments from people on Twitter about Jerry Lawler:
Velvet Sky: “Just did Piper’s Pit with Jerry Lawler in Aruba on Friday and he seemed to be in great health so I know he will pull through this”
AJ Lee: “Thinking of Lawler. I’m sure he’d appreciate all of your well wishes. Stay strong, King.”
William Regal: “My best wishes go out to Jerry Lawler and his family.”
Jim Ross: “4 skeptics, @JerryLawler heart attack was REAL. NOT showbiz. He’s in cardiac ICU in Montreal. My friend will ‘kick out.’ Believe it. I do.”
“It’s possible via my own experiences Jerry Lawler may have had blocked arteries associated w/ his heart. That matter can be addressed. TBD”
“Never take 1 day of your life 4 granted. Said it many times, tomorrows aren’t guaranteed. Kings heart attack being treated. Lucky man so far”
