Positive Update On Jerry Lawler

Jerry Lawler continues to improve following a stroke

Jerry Lawler is expected to make a full recovery following rehabilitation, the WWE Hall of Famer's Twitter account has revealed.

"Update on Jerry: After suffering a massive Stroke Monday. He is now recovering in a Fort Myers, FL hospital. His speech is limited, but with rehabilitation will regain a full recovery. He thanks everyone for the continued prayers and will be back in the near future," a tweet from Lawler's account revealed.

Lawler suffered a stroke on Monday, February 6 and the Memphis Wrestling legend was rushed to hospital in Fort Myers, Florida. He has since undergone surgery and is continuing to recover in hospital. 

Lawler has remained a part of WWE in recent years, last appearing on the company's programming on the Royal Rumble Kickoff Show. Lawler has continued to perform inside the squared circle too, last wrestling on January 21 against The Beer City Bruiser at an indy show. 

Lawler has suffered from serious health issues over the past 11 years, suffering a heart attack in 2012 before a stroke in 2018.
