“I nearly died of cardiac arrest in a WWE event and had a seven out of 1,000 chance of surviving,” says Jerry Lawler

A decade later, Jerry “The King” Lawler has disclosed his ringside cardiac arrest.

The WWE Hall of Famer and color analyst suffered a cardiac arrest during a live broadcast of Monday Night Raw on September 10, 2012.

Now, a decade later, Lawler appeared on The Jonny Dare Morning Show to discuss what transpired that fateful night in Montreal.

Lawler took the opportunity to “fix the story.”

Despite reports to the contrary, Lawler said he suffered cardiac arrest, not a heart attack.

Lawler explained, “A heart attack is when you have blocked arteries and blood clots or something is blocking your veins or your arteries and stuff like that and then your heart gets damaged from a lack of blood flow or you can die from that course.”

“But cardiac arrest is when your heart suddenly stops beating for one reason or another. And only seven out of 1,000 people who have cardiac arrest survive, and the only ones who do are if they get immediate care, because technically they are. Once you have cardiac arrest, your heart stops and you’re dead. “

Luckily for Lawler, he happened to be seated right next to WWE’s doctor, Dr. Sampson as he collapses – as seen on the show.

According to the 72-year-old, the doctor’s quick decision to perform CPR on the spot saved Lawler’s life.

Footage from the night shows Lawler being taken backstage and treated by emergency crews.

They can be seen continuing to perform CPR and use a defibrillator before loading it into an ambulance.

Despite his heart not beating for 22 minutes, Lawler persevered and, according to the Bleacher Report, made his comeback on Monday Night Raw just three months later.

Lawler believes the cardiac arrest stemmed from a match earlier in the evening in which he was body punched and elbowed in the chest 10 times by Dolph Ziggler.

Lawler explained, “What the cardiologist told me later was that this blunt trauma knocked my heart out.”

No one could have guessed that Lawler would wake up in the hospital three days later, unaware of his near-death experience.

Not that it changed his outlook on life.

In fact, Lawler even joked that when asked by his cardiologist if he saw a bright light or anything similar when the arrest took place — which he denied — the cardiologist replied, “Well, that meant you acted the wrong way.”

Thankfully, Lawler didn’t go anywhere and say he didn’t have any other issues with his heart, admitting, “I don’t even think about it anymore.”
