That could be worse. There are all kinds of health problems that a wrestler could have throughout their career, with many of them being the same kind of thing that run of the mill people deal with every day. Those are often the more serious ones though and the question becomes how the recovery is going to go. That is the case again, as a wrestling legend is recovering from a health scare.

Earlier this week, news broke that WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry Lawler had undergone a health issue, which has since been confirmed as a stroke. Lawler’s longtime WWE broadcast partner Jim Ross has sent out a tweet, revealing that he spoke with Lawler briefly Tuesday night. Ross said that Lawler’s prognosis was “positive” but did not give any further details. There is no word on when Lawler might be released from the hospital.

They have some legendary moments together. Check out Lawler and Ross in WWE:

Opinion: That is great to hear as what Lawler is dealing with a rather serious health issue. Ross is someone who seems to be close to him and the fact that Lawler could have a conversation, even if it was brief, is a good sign for where things are going. Hopefully Lawler is back on his feet sooner than later, as things seem to be at least going in the right direction.
