Jim Ross Talks About HIAC Match at WrestleMania, Relationship with Lawler

Posted by Matt Boone November 8, 2012 8 Comments

The Miami Herald is featuring quotes from an interview with Jim Ross. Here are some highlights.

Relationship with Jerry Lawler & his near fatal heart attack: “I speak to him, and when we don’t talk, we text about everyday or two,” Ross said. “He is doing great. He’s feeling great. He’s the luckiest man in the world, quite frankly. I don’t know where else he could have been, unless he was actually sitting in a doctor’s office, when that heart attack occurred, that he would be alive today.

“Thank God WWE has two full-time physicians who travel with the team, and Dr. Sampson was right there at ringside, watching the matches in the secured corral area, timekeeper area as I understand it, and as soon as he saw Jerry come out of his chair and fall to the floor… So Michael Cole got their attention.

“Good thing for Michael Cole doing that because I’m sure they didn’t know and thought it could be part of a storyline. They wouldn’t know, yea or nay, but Michael with a sense of urgency got the doctor over, and once the doctor saw Jerry had no pulse, he started CPR immediately.
“The EMTs are in the building, obviously. So I was told Jerry was hit with the [defibrillator] paddle seven times to generate a heartbeat. What I was told by more than one who were there that he was clinically dead for 15 minutes. So it was horrific.

“I was at home in Norman [Okla.] and watching on TV. I don’t know if I’d ever felt a sense of helplessness. I don’t know how many hundreds of hours Jerry and I have broadcast together and coupled that with all the hundreds of hours we traveled together, it’s like having an older brother.

Who made the decision that he call the Hell in a Cell match at Wrestlemania: “Vince McMahon was the reason I called the Hell in a Cell match [at WrestleMania 28], and for that I’ll always be indebted because, to me, I don’t think we’ll ever see. Now I may be wrong, but it’s my personal opinion; I don’t think we’ll ever see Undertaker, Triple H, Shawn Michaels in a ring in their gear ever again together. So for me to be able to do a little bit of commentary on that match for that reason was extremely gratifying.”
