Jerry “The King” Lawler’s ex-wife and former WWE Diva Stacy Carter posted this on her Facebook page Tuesday afternoon at 5:34 PM CDT:
I have an update on Jerry. The docs are removing his ventilation & taking him out of sedation. He is responsive, which is great!!! It took a while to revive him last night so there’s the concern of brain damage. He had some tests done which will show how much if any damage there is due to the lack of oxygen to his brain. Unfortunately, the results won’t be in until in the morning. I appreciate all the calls, texts, tweets, & Facebook messages of support & I know Jerry will too. Thanks everybody!!
Lawler collapsed Monday evening in Montreal while commentating ringside during WWE’s live RAW broadcast on the USA Network. Earlier in the show, The King competed in a tag team match with Randy Orton vs. CM Punk and Dolph Ziggler.MORE INFO:Click here for details about Jerry Lawler’s surgery as he remains in cardiac care unitVIDEO:
