I hope you're aware he's an announcer not a contender..
he does still compete from time to time and had apparently had a match earlier in the night. i doubt that set it off but it probably accelerated the problem. better to suffer it then than 3 hours later in some hotel room on his own.
I do not watch much WWF I mean WWE. I used to when in high school. At a friends house because she was supposed to be related to that Hulk Hogan person. I did for a while because I liked to watch the Undertakers matches.
From time to time though I have poped back in to look.
I hope for the best, "The King" is known to be a fighter and I hear there was medical assistance on site as soon as it occurred. I'm sure he will be back in the fullness of time.
I admit. When I first saw it last night, I thought it was kayfabe in order to pump up the screen feud between him and C.M. Punk. It's only once I noticed that Michael Cole hadn't said a word for two whole matches (which, admittedly, is only 12 minutes plus commercials in this age) that I started to believe that it was real. After all, Michael Cole will NEVER shut up. I think it's contractual.
From the Twitter feeds and so forth, Lawler is still of going concern. After all, he's one of the few remaining members of the show from the glory days of the '90's. (For those keeping score at home, Christian and Kane would be the others. And, if you add in WCW, you can include Booker-T and The Big Show.)
yea at first i also thought it was "part of the entertainment" also butwhen cole started acting the way he did and there was no announcements by commentators the rest of the show, i looked it up and news of it was everywhere. But at least Lawler is being released and sent home today, so thankgoodness he is gonna be ok.
