Jerry “The King” Lawler Suffers Heart Attack On Air

It wasn’t a bit, it wasn’t part of the script and it wasn’t fake. Last night Jerry “The King” Lawler suffered a heart attack at the announcers table during a live event. More after the jump.

Jerry “The King” Lawler is famous both for the antics he pulled with Andy Kaufman, and for portraying himself in the movie version of those events in the movie “Man In The Moon”.

Lawler was ringside last night when he was struck with a heart attack.  WWE medical professionals tended to him backstage (we’re assuming CPR) and he was taken to a nearby hospital.  Details are a little sketchy at this time, but some wrestling web sites are saying that he is resting and breathing on his own.

Here’s co-commentator Micheal Cole breaking the news:
