Brian Christopher, the son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler, wrote a message with an update regarding his father who yesterday underwent angioplasty following his heart attack during the live RAW broadcast.

The former Too Cool member said that Lawler was shocked 7 times backstage by EMTs using a defibrillator before being brought back to life, raising concerns that there might be a possibility of brain damage due to lack of oxygen to the brain when he was clinically dead.

“Everyone out there needs to say a special prayer for his brain at this point, please. Tests on his brain will not be available until the morning,” he wrote.

On a more positive outlook, he wrote that Jerry is being responsive to questions and sedation and breathing support are being lowered slowly which is a good sign.
