Wrestling icon in stable condition after ringside heart attack

The former fighter was given life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and hospitalised after he passed out while commentating, but now local reports suggest he’s recovering from the health scare.

A representative for the WWE tells TMZ.com, “Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler is in a cardiac care unit and all his vital signs are stable.”

Meanwhile, his ex-wife Stacy Carter has been updating fans on Twitter, revealing Lawler, 62, underwent surgery on Monday night and had a “stint & a balloon put in”.
