As Monday Night Raw went off the air, Michael Cole announced they had received word that Lawler's condition had "stabilized" and that they were told he was breathing on his own and that his heart was beating on its own. Cole repeated that Lawler was waiting to undergo a CT Scan on his head and chest and directed fans to the WWE website for additional updates.
According to sources, Lawler had flown to Montreal after working weekend independent shots in Aruba, so he had a long day of travel before working TV tonight. Whether that was a factor remains to be seen.
One ringside fan emailed PWInsider.com to report that Lawler sounded as if he began snoring right before he collapsed. Prior to that, he communicated with a ringside employee, possibly to warn them something was wrong. Lawler grabbed his arm and turned "blue-ish" as he fell, signs of a heart attack. Note that WWE has not publicly stated what the situation is beyond that Lawler was receiving CPR.
EMTs were on the scene immediately, as were WWE medical personnel. They immediately ripped Lawler's shirt open and began administering medical assistance. A group of responders lifted Lawler to a stretcher, where he was rushed backstage and worked on before being transported via ambulance to a hospital. The ringside fan who emailed us stated that WWE officials directed the EMTs to get Lawler backstage and away from the crowd.
After Lawler was removed, the WWE ring crew frantically cleaned up the ringside area as it appeared Lawler may have gotten sick before or after he fell.
As you can imagine, the entire roster was pretty shaken up by the situation. Everyone is hopeful for the best, obviously.
As we hear more, we will update. We wish Lawler and his family nothing but the best.
