jerry the king lawler cleared gi Jerry 'The King' Lawler cleared to wrestle after heart attack on 'WWE Raw'

Less than a year after he collapsed on live TV, suffering from a heart attack, legendary professional wrestler Jerry “The King” Lawler has been cleared to return to the ring. Lawler hasn’t wrestled a match since his heart attack, but that’s about to change.
The 63-year-old Lawler is set to have his return match May 25 at a small show in Florida. He’s scheduled to team with another WWE Hall of Fame wrestler, 72-year-old Dory Funk Jr., the Miami Herald reports. Funk considers it a privilege to be part of Lawler’s return.
Lawler collapsed during an episode of “WWE Raw” on September 10, 2012. He was commentating on a match after facing a wrestler named CM Punk. His commentary partner, Michael Cole, was tasked with keeping the show on track while updating the viewing audience on Lawler’s condition. Jerry returned to “Raw” two months later, resuming his role as commentator.
