Good news for Jerry Lawler

Over the last few days, we have brought you the news of the illness that took Jerry Lawler by surprise, with the WWE Hall of Famer suffering a stroke in his home and then rushed to the hospital where he was operated on and then hospitalized for a few days.

Apparently, Jerry's conditions seem to be improving day by day, with the legendary Memphis wrestler also coming out of the intensive care unit, where he was hospitalized after the illness. In the last few hours, his social pages have wanted to bring updates on his condition, writing: “Jerry is out of ICU and will be returning to his Florida home for in-home rehab with limited speech and cognition.

The doctors are hoping for a full recovery and Jerry looks forward to returning to his fans very soon - Lauryn."

Update on Jerry Lawler

Through a report on its website, PW Insider had made it known how the legend Jerry Lawler was currently in hospital in critical condition following a health problem that had suddenly struck him.

The site reported: “PWInsider.com is sad to inform you that WWE Hall of Famer and one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time, Jerry Lawler suffered a medical episode while staying at his home in Florida yesterday afternoon.

The story that has been making the rounds is that Lawler had been out for lunch with his friends and sometime after lunch he fell ill and was taken to hospital. PWInsider.com learned of the matter last night, but out of respect to Lawler and his family, chose not to report it.

Earlier in the day, the news began to spread after Ricky Morton publicly expressed his best wishes to Lawler. As neither Lawler's family nor WWE have released an official statement, we are choosing not to disclose the nature of the issue." Lawler, 73, had just appeared on the WWE Royal Rumble 2023 Kickoff Show panel two weeks ago and had an autograph session in Florida over the weekend.

He is currently hospitalized and everyone here wishes him and his family the best in the days to come” and we at World Wrestling obviously join our colleagues in wishing Jerry Lawler a speedy recovery. Considering their long-standing friendship, Jim Ross was able to talk to the veteran and provide an update with a tweet.

"I spoke very briefly with @JerryLawler⁩ tonight. He’s obviously weak but I could understand his affected speech. Jerry’s prognosis is positive but he needs all our thoughts and prayers. #LoveYaKing".
