WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler is currently hospitalized.
A new report from PWInsider notes that Lawler suffered a serious medical episode at his condo in Florida on Monday. Lawler had been out for lunch with friends, and some time after that lunch he became ill, and was rushed to the hospital.
There’s no confirmation on the nature of Lawler’s health issue as of this writing.
The 73 year old Lawler just worked the Royal Rumble Kickoff pre-show, and made a public signing in Florida over the weekend. Lawler suffered a massive heart attack while doing RAW commentary in September 2012. He later made a full recovery.
WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Morton was the first wrestler to go public with Lawler’s hospitalization, and then PWInsider confirmed the report. You can see related tweets below:
