A couple of years ago, I was living in Chicago, and I was working as one of the booth girls for Marvel Comics. And I heard that Jerry Lawler and a couple of WWE people were there, so I ran over—I was actually dressed as the girl version of Captain America […] I think I was signing people up for the online comics […] and I ran over to Jerry and I was like, ‘I’m a HUGE wrestling fan’ and he didn’t believe me—because I was dressed up as this chick! And he was like ‘Man there’s no way!’ So I asked him all about it and waited a year, because I was playing football at the time. And then a year later I had my tryout and now look at me! (x)
Good to see you back, King :)

According to Dave Meltzer on a breaking news audio update this morning, Jerry Lawler is stable but not out of the woods, and apparently the EMTs in the arena essentially saved his life right there, as the situation was looking very grave when Lawler first fell ill.
Here’s hoping he pulls through, it’s a very scary situation.
