Jerry Lawler had heart attack, was clinically dead before being revived
Lawler collapsed during Monday’s telecast of “RAW” at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada, and was treated immediately by the medical staff. EMTs worked to successfully revive Lawler, who, according to multiple accounts, was clinically dead.
This particular report comes from Smith Hart, the older brother of Brett and Owen Hart:
According to my friend Jeremy Prophet who was backstage at RAW, Jerry was clinically dead for 20 min before being brought back by defibrilat

Clinically dead for 20 minutes before being revived. I’m not sure a stunt with Andy Kaufman could have come up with a scenario that frightening.
Lawler’s girlfriend, Lauryn Laine McBride, wrote on her Facebook page that Lawler had a heart attack and that he is in stable condition and breathing on his own. That’s great news for the millions who were concerned about The King’s well being.
In the video below, you can see Lawler being taken to the locker room on a stretcher:
That was a job extremely well done by the medical staff; Lawler literally owes them his life.
