It's really good to see a picture like this after all that's happened.

Coming by way of his girlfriend, Lauryn Laine McBride, the above photo is of Jerry "The King" Lawler, apparently in good spirits -- as we've heard from Michael Cole and others for roughly a day now -- at the hospital where he is still being treated after suffering a heart attack on Monday Night Raw earlier this week.

It's amazing he looks this good after what was called a "massive" heart attack. The good news just keeps getting better as the days go by.

WWE also posted another update with comments from Michael Cole:

"The biggest thing Jerry wanted me to do was to let the millions and millions of fans out there that have been tweeting their well wishes to me, WWE and to his account, that the outpouring of support from around the world has really, really touched him. He broke down a little bit and was very emotional in talking about the love of the WWE fans, thanking the company for its support and he had very kind words for the people that helped to save his life: to Dr. Sampson, to [WWE production assistant] Mike Mansury, who was at ringside, to the EMTs in Montreal. Obviously, he doesn't remember what happened, but he'd been told over the past 24 hours everything that went down, and it's a miracle. The man had a massive heart attack and he was talking two days later. I never thought I'd hear his voice again, let alone two days after the event."
