Finally, some great news to pass along.

After Jerry "The King" Lawler suffered a heart attack on Monday Night Raw earlier this week in Montreal, live on the air, he was attended to by medics who revived him after he went unconscious. He was out for a while, apparently, and according to his son, he required seven shocks from a defibrillator to be brought back. His ex-wife Carter would later say it took 15 minutes to bring him back.

The outlook seemed grim that he could come out of such an ordeal without brain damage but that's exactly what's happened. Carter, as well as his son, Brian Christopher, confirmed the news.

"The rumors are true," Carter said. "I just got confirmation that Jerry Lawler's test results are in and he has no brain damage. That is wonderful news."

Christopher added, ""The CT scan of my dad's brain came back good."

TMZ has spoken with Kevin Lawler, another son of Jerry's, who gives even more good news.

"[Jerry] is hooked up to tubes and is still not able to speak ... but he's writing stuff on a notepad to talk to people. Not just brief notes, but detailed stories which show he knows where he is and what is going on."

This is outstanding news, especially when last night's update was that Lawler didn't look good at all. We'll keep you posted as more comes in.
