That’s as serious as you can get. There are all kinds of injuries in wrestling, but there are also various health issues that would be classified as a bit more serious. This can include all kinds of things that you might not see, but some of them can be life threatening. Unfortunately that was the case one night on Monday Night Raw and now someone is talking about a special anniversary.
On the September 10, 2012 Monday Night Raw, Jerry Lawler wrestled in a tag match and suffered cardiac arrest, resulting in his heart stopping for 22 minutes. Lawler posted a tweet about the anniversary of the event, calling it the match of his life and thanking Dr. Sampson for saving him. Lawler continues to wrestle on the independent circuit, with his most recent match taking place in June of this year.
10 years ago today on @WWE RAW from Montreal/Quebec Canada, @RandyOrton and I defeated @CMPunk and @HEELZiggler Then, right after that, I won the match of my life, when I defeated DEATH! After a cardiac arrest, my heart did not beat for 22 minutes! Thank you @DocSampson13 pic.twitter.com/gkQOkbnrbZ

Opinion: That isn’t something everyone can say and it is rather amazing to see Lawler get to talk about it. Anything close to this would be a serious situation but to have your heart stop for over twenty minutes and then be brought back to life is nothing short of a miracle. It’s great that Lawler is still around and the fact that he is still able to get in the ring is almost just as incredible.
What do you think of Lawler? How amazing is it that he survived? Let us know in the comments below.
