      Really sad to hear about King Jerry Lawler. I didn’t catch Raw live last night, so I already knew about King before I watched it. It kinda overshadowed everything knowing what would transpire. I did feel for Cole, John, Bret and Punk for trying to make the best of the main event segment. Considering, they did a good job. Whether you hate Jerry Lawler or whether you love him, you can’t deny, he’s been a huge asset to WWE over the years. He’s never been a top performer as far as in ring ability is concerned, but he’s been ABSOLUTELY tops, for entertainment value, both as a wrestler, and as a commentator, and I really hope he pulls through this. I’d doubt he’ll ever wrestle again, but i really really hope we get him back on the mic real soon. He was good value for money as a heel commentator when he first started at ringside. With Vince, he was hilarious. With Good ol’ JR he was better. Even now as very much a face and definate fan favourite, he “makes” a lot of WWE products for me, and I miss him already. One thing is for sure, when he does get back onto television or at a live event, and i’m sure he will, he’s going to be really humbled by the reception he gets, certainly equal to that night Bret Hart returned to WWE. It’s also good to know that Vince McMahon did the right thing, and left Raw in the hands of others, to get over to the hospital. If no one else say’s it, I love you, and always have. Get well soon, and get back to WWE when you’re fit too. Best wishes.

      the best thing for a heart attack is cayenne tincture. make the person drink it or just dump some in their mouth. cayenne is the best especially for gunshots or any massive blood loss.

      See this is why the flairs of the world should just stop while they still have their health,and their lives. Wrestling companies should have an age limit on in ring activity both for this purpose. (Lawller) and to just protect against the older wrestlers themselves. But that will never happen cuz it’s all about the money. And vince was probably by his side repeating please don’t sue, please don’t sue.

      Very well put CaptainChaos. I applaud you. May i just add that if this was Jerry’s last match, and it most likely was, he got what many others don’t get. He went out with a win albeit in a tag. One other point to note is not only did he continue wrestling on and off because he loved doing it, he did it because the fans loved him doing it, and thats the most important thing to remember. Full marks to wwe for carrying on and full marks for the final segment of the show. Long live the King
