Sad news in the WWE World, legend Jerry “The King” Lawler was left unable to speak after suffering a stroke two weeks before WrestleMania.
The legend that is Lawler was left hospitalised after he suffered a stroke while having sex with his girlfriend Lauryn McBride. He is well known for his charisma and fun in the ring.
The superstar wrestler turned commentator, revealed that he was taken to the emergency room after falling ill on Wednesday, March 21.
Doctors found the hemorrhage on his brain and he was placed in intensive care – being left unable to speak for three days.
Lawler’s recovery was so remarkable that he was even able to return to the commentators booth for WrestleMania 34.
What Lawler had to say:
“I got up and I said something to Lauryn and I didn’t really feel anything, and she said ‘what did you say?’ And I realised then that whatever I said didn’t sound right, and then she looked at me – we made eye contact – and she said ‘oh my god Jerry, go look in the mirror. I walked around to the bathroom and I look in the mirror and the whole right side of my mouth is drooping all the way down to my chin.”
The WWE legend added after that point he was left unable to speak, his wife screamed at the top of her lungs: “Oh my god, you having a stroke”.
Bride then rushed to the car, strapping Lawler into the back of their car, driving five minutes from there home to the hospital.
Lawler described the incident as “expressing love for each other in a certain way” and his co-host Glenn Moore clarified it was during sex this horrible incident happened, in a post on Reddit.
Doctors were astonished by his recovery. They’re now expecting him to continue with his career & his normal wrestling routine.
