No brain damage for Jerry “The King” Lawler

WMC-TV is reporting that Jerry Lawler’s CT scan results do not show any signs of brain damage following the heart attack on Monday.

Lawler was clinically dead backstage as EMTs and WWE’s medical team did their best to revive him. It took 7 shocks to get his heart beating again and it was feared that the time it took would have resulted in some sort of brain damage.

The news was revealed by Joe Cooper, Lawler’s best friend and business partner. Several family members are in Montreal to stay close to the WWE Hall of Famer but others are still behind trying to get a passport quickly.

His son Brian Christopher later updated his Facebook page with the good news. “The CT scan of my dad’s brain came back good! With his brain not receiving oxygen for as long as it did there was a chance he could have had brain damage. I truly believe everyone’s prayers are working and the Lord is holding him in the palm of his hand,” he wrote.

Lawler is stabilized at a Montreal hospital and while still sedated, he is responding to his family members including squeezing his girlfriend’s hand according to WMC-TV.
