The rest of the night was mostly without commentary, except for updates on Lawler’s condition by his broadcast partner Michael Cole who said, “This is not part of tonight’s entertainment. This is a real-life situation.”
Lawler’s girlfriend later confirmed on Facebook that he’d suffered a heart attack. But she said, quote, “He is in stable condition and breathing on his own & heart is stable.”
Below is the video of Michael Cole giving updates on Lawler’s condition. If you do not watch Raw Michael and Jerry have a little back and forth they do. They pretend to not like each other and Michael looks like kind of a bad guy usually. It was nice to see Michael look sympathetic and like a nice guy gained a lot of respect for him.
