Yikes. During a live televised event for “Monday Night Raw,” wrestling legend Jerry Lawler, working as one of the commentators, had a heart attack. The video above shows Michael Cole, who was working with Lawler in the booth as the incident took place, as he told fans about the incident on television. “This is not part of tonight’s entertainment,” he said. “This is a real-life situation.” The 62-year-old Lawler, mostly working as an announcer for the WWE, did briefly wrestle earlier in the program before the incident took place.
Disabled war vet Arthur Boorman was in so much pain that he was told by doctors that he’d never be able to walk again without assistance. Then he started using a yoga program put together by former wrestling star Diamond Dallas Page … and this happened. A great watch.
TMZ reports that professional wrestling legend “Macho Man” Randy Savage died today in a car crash after suffering from a heart attack while driving. Here’s his Hulk Hogan-dissing single from 2003, “Be a Man”.
Holy crap. The way he died is devastating. :(
How can you claim to be aConnecticut resident Stacey Smith • Pinpointing the problem Linda McMahon has with wooing female voters. Part of it is that she’s one of the driving forces behind the WWE, an organization which not only doesn’t cater to women but portrays them cartoonishly. She’s also getting guff because she’s spent so much time and money on negative advertising. The end result? Richard Blumenthal is leading her 2:1 among females, the effect of which has put him well ahead in the race to replace Chris Dodd in the Senate. source (via)
