WWE News: Jerry Lawler discusses his health following his heart attack, says one out of 250 people survive the type of heart attack he suffered, status for upcoming WWE events in Tennessee
Oct 1, 2012 - 01:00 PM


WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler spoke with ESPN regarding his health following the heart attack he suffered last month. The following are the highlights of the interview, which can be read in full at ESPN.go.com/blog/playbook/trending/post/_/id/8834/wwes-jerry-lawler-talks-heart-attack-recovery.

Lawler on how lucky he feels: "For this kind of heart attack, only one out of 260 people survive. My girlfriend told me that on the way to the hospital they thought I was dead but they were still working on me and eventually shocked me seven times. It is a real comeback. People were asking me whether I saw bright lights and saw relatives who have passed. No, I didn't see any of that. Michael Cole said that's because I was heading in the opposite direction!"

Lawler on his health: ""I'm probably doing better than expected. I broke my leg in the 1980s and I was out of the ring for a year. That was painful and agonizing. The funny thing about this heart attack is I didn't even realize it was happening. I just passed out. I didn't have any excruciating pain. When I woke up three days later, the only soreness I had was in the chest from all the compressions they were giving me to revive me."

Lawler on appearing at upcoming WWE events in Nashville and Memphis on October 15-16: "I would like to. I know because of my voice that I would sound horrible on the air. It's a few weeks away, so I honestly think I could; I'm so thankful for the fact that I feel good at this time."

Powell's POV: Lawler also discussed what he remembers from that night three weeks ago, the reaction from the fans, and what his girlfriend Lauryn Laine McBride has meant to him during this tough time. Obviously, it's a highly recommended read.
