Just a few days ago, the news came that Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler suffered a second heart stroke. He was immediately taken to the hospital, but no further update had come, until now.

Through his Twitter, the legend sent a positive message, saying that he was recovering and healing from the surgery. It was scarier for the community as Lawler once had a similar stroke on live TV 11 years ago. That was when Lawler was commentating alongside Cole on an episode of Monday Night Raw. It was a nightmare, and everyone hoped that it wouldn’t turn into one this time around as well. Luckily, everything is alright.
