WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler suffered a stroke three weeks before Wrestlemania while having sex with his girlfriend. The 68-year-old seemed in fine health as he helped commentate the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 34 on Sunday. However, he has revealed that he suffered s troke while he and fiancee Lauryn McBride were ‘expressing love for each other in a certain way’.
Speaking on his Dinner With The King podcast, Jerry told co-host Glenn Moore: ‘I got up and I said something to Lauryn and I didn’t really feel anything, and she said “what did you say?”
‘And I realised then that whatever I said didn’t sound right, and then she looked at me – we made eye contact – and she said “oh my god Jerry, go look in the mirror”. ‘I walked around to the bathroom and I look in the mirror and the whole right side of my mouth is drooping all the way down to my chin.’ Jerry Lawler then realised he couldn’t speak, saying that Lauryn screamed: ‘Oh my god, you’re having a stroke.’ Doctors discovered a haemorrhage to his brain, and he was placed in an intensive care unit.
