Jerry Lawler Reflects On Near-Fatal Medical Emergency Last Year On RAW

Published On September 10, 2013 by (WWE News)

One year ago today (September 10th), WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler experienced a near-fatal cardiac arrest live on Monday Night RAW.

It was widely reported that Lawler had suffered a heart attack, but he clarified in an interview last spring that he went through Sudden Cardiac Arrest, which according to the Mayo Clinic, “usually results from an electrical disturbance in your heart that disrupts its pumping action, stopping blood flow to the rest of your body.”

Lawler remarked on the one year anniversary of the occasion this morning via Twitter. He wrote,

“Thanks for all the thoughts & prayers from everyone about cardiac arrest 1 year ago today…thank God & Doc Sampson everything is fine now!”
