As noted earlier this evening here on the website, Jerry Lawler was hospitalized earlier today after he became ill backstage at RAW in Baltimore, Maryland. Lawler was complaining of chest pains and was vomiting backstage.
Lawler’s son Brian Christopher, who is backstage at RAW today for a “Too Cool” reunion, apparently became concerned and alerted WWE officials that something was wrong. WWE officials immediately approached Lawler and encouraged him to visit a hospital to get checked out. Lawler kept telling WWE officials that he was “fine” and was trying to hide it.
Lawler eventually took that advice and went to a local hospital in Baltimore. Doctors performed some blood work and gave him the “all clear.” He passed all medical testing that he was given. As noted earlier, he did NOT suffer a heart attack and went to the hospital as a precautionary measure only.
As you would imagine, numerous WWE talents were described as being “depressed” when word got around the locker-room that Jerry was having issues.
