Jerry Lawler Health Update After Medical Emergency
Latest on Jerry 'The King' Lawler, who suffered an emergency in his home this week.
Jerry 'The King' Lawler is seemingly on the mend after suffering a serious medical issue earlier this week.
Action News 5 reported on Tuesday that the 73-year-old had undergone surgery at a Florida hospital after a stroke. Later, the Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer reported that Lawler hadn't suffered a stroke, but a blood blockage on the right side of his brain. Jerry was reportedly found face-down outside of his home prior to being taken to the hospital.
Meltzer added that after waking up following surgery, Lawler couldn't talk - and had no feeling on his right side.
Dutch Mantell, meanwhile, has stated that Lawler is in "good condition." On top of this, he is expected to make a recovery.

Lawler has unfortunately been stricken by several serious medical incidents over the past 11 years. In September 2012, the Memphis wrestling legend suffered a heart attack during a live episode of WWE Raw. Six years later, in 2018, he had his first stroke, sending him to the ICU and rendering him unable to talk for three days. He went on to make a full recovery.
Best wishes to Jerry as he recovers from this latest health scare.
