Jerry Lawler gave the WWE Universe and the rest of the world a scare on Monday night when he collapsed and suffered a heart attack at the announcer's table during a live WWE event. The Hall of Famer is pulling through, though, and according to his co-worker, he's in great spirits.
Michael Coulthard, known more commonly by his ring name, Michael Cole, tweeted the following Thursday afternoon, which was a welcomed sight for those wondering about Lawler's status.
The king is in great spirits again today!#GetWellJerry

Cole, of course, is the man who broke the news of Lawler's collapse to the viewers at home during Monday's live WWE Raw show. It was a confusing time for wrestling fans, because it easily could have been construed as one of the evening's storylines, as Lawler had wrestled earlier in the night. Cole was visibly distraught, though, and emphasized that Lawler's situation was not part of the evening's entertainment.
Lawler's ex-wife and former WWE Diva, Stacy Carter, tweeted the following on Wednesday, which is another indication that Lawler's status is improving.
Nothing 2 report on @jerrylawler other than he's making progress & resting. He has great docs & support. He'll pull thru this I know it!!!!
