WWE News: Jerry Lawler Provides Scary Medical Update

Published

on

If you remember, previously we reported on a major health scare for WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler. ‘The King’ had revealed that a couple of weeks prior to calling the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania, he had suffered a minor stroke (which you can read here). Lawler would provide further details later on in episodes of his Dinner With The King podcast (which can be found here) and it appeared as if the former AWA Champion had gotten away damage free. However, that no longer appears to be the case…sort of.

In the post-Greatest Royal Rumble edition of Dinner With The King, Lawler would state that he went in for a follow-up with his doctor that revealed he had suffered brain damage:

“I had my first follow up with a neurologist, Dr. Weaver here in Memphis that came to see me while I was in Intensive Care and everything with my stroke. I had to get a cat scan today; but, the cool thing is he showed me a picture, brought me back and showed me a picture of my brain and this was not something I wanted to hear. He said, ‘Let me show you your brain & your brain damage.’ I said, ‘What?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, take a look.’ So anyway he shows me the scan of my brain and there was a spot on it, a dark spot, about the size of a quarter. He said, ‘When you were in the hospital that spot was solid white because it was solid blood. Now the blood has been absorbed and that is cells that have been damaged.’ I said, ‘So that amount of cells were damaged?’ He said, ‘Oh yeah, you’re just very fortunate…if that amount, that size, had been further down inside your brain, you could have lost the whole use of the whole left side of your body.’ I have no residual effects at all, I’m lucky.”

‘The King’ would also add that he was told by his doctor he should be fine and will avoid another stroke provided he continues taking his blood pressure medicine.

WWE News: Paige Assaulted By Fan While Leaving Allstate Arena Last Night

Published

on

In some breaking news this morning, it looks like one member of the WWE Universe took things way too far following last night’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view in Rosemont, Illinois.

PWInsider is reporting that SmackDown Live General Manager Paige was the victim of an assault as she was leaving the building. According to an eye witness, the multi-time WWE Divas was on her way out of the arena in the passenger seat of her vehicle with the window down to say goodbye to the loads of fans who were patiently waiting to get a final glimpse of their favorite Superstars. While giving out some high-fives, a male approached the vehicle and then “pie-faced” Paige, telling her to “lose some weight”.

It’s being said that the fan was confronted after the incident, but it was not by Paige and has yet to be specified. It’s also unclear at this time if the fan was arrested or not, however Paige posted about it via Instagram story, which we were able to get a screen capture of:

EA’s Take: This is all kinds of wrong. Of course, this is definitely assault by the letter of the law, but it remains to be seen what will come of it or if she’ll be pressing charges (if the guy was arrested). Secondly, what the $*!# is wrong with people?!? Perhaps I have blinders on, but there’s nothing wrong with Paige’s body, so I truly don’t understand why people shame her about her weight. What does she weigh, 140? 150? Give me a break. I could be wrong, but I’d be willing to bet there are a lot of women who wish they looked as good as Paige does. Keep doing you boo.
