WWE legend Jerry “The King” Lawler has been rushed to hospital.
That’s according to PWInsider, who say he suffered a medical episode while staying at his condo in Florida on Monday afternoon, The Sun reported.
Action News 5 say Lawler suffered a stroke and has undergone surgery at a Florida hospital.
Neither Lawler’s family or the WWE have made an official statement.
Lawler had recently appeared on the 30th anniversary episode of WWE Raw and also on the Royal Rumble 2023 Kick-off Show panel.
He also did a signing in Florida over the weekend.
The 73-year-old has previously suffered with his health.
On a September 10, 2012, live episode of Raw, Lawler had a ringside cardiac arrest.
Thankfully for Lawler, he happened to be sitting right next to the WWE’s doctor, Dr. Sampson, when he collapsed – as can be seen on the broadcast.
The doctor’s quick thinking to perform CPR then and there saved Lawler’s life.
Lawler also suffered a stroke while having sex with his partner, Lauryn McBride, weeks before WrestleMania 34.
The WWE icon’s whole right side of his face was drooping all the way down to his chin, he revealed a number of years ago.
Well wishes have poured in from across the wrestling world.
WWE Hall of Famer, and a close pal of Lawler, Ricky Morton, tweeted: “I hope my friend is going to okay. Love you, Jerry.”
A follow-up tweet read: “Please direct good vibes, thoughts, & prayers to Jerry at this time.
“Genuinely appreciate it & hope to hear good news in the very near future.”
