Jerry Lawler. Has heart-attack. Goes to hospital. Gets given steak. And ANTI-MEDICINE.

14 Sep

So, that modern medicine stuff, eh?

If you don’t watch WWE, or maintain an interest in professional wrestling, you may not know who the happy-looking dude in the picture above is. This is Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, a WWE Hall-of-Famer who at 62 years of age has been in the business for over four decades.

So who cares? Well, after competing in a match on a recent live taping of the WWE’s flagship TV show ‘Monday Night Raw,’ in Montreal, Canada, ‘The King’ suffered a potentially fatal heart attack. This occured while in the middle of performing commentary duty before the eyes of a packed sports arena. Jerry was immediately given CPR by backstage medical staff.

Then what? Turns out, while in hospital the medicine of choice for recent heart attack victims is a frickin’ steak dinner. Doesn’t seem sensible to me, but hell, I’m no doctor. And then again, you can clearly see the Diet Coke in the photograph above. So that’s okay, isn’t it? Diet soda is a pretty healthy beverage option, right?


The question I have is this. Exactly who did Jerry Lawler piss off? What do you think? Is this an example of conspicuous negligence by healthcare professionals, or is this all being blown out of proportion?

What do you think about this, then?
