Jim Ross Discusses Jerry Lawler’s Health

November 8, 2012 | Posted by Larry Csonka

- During a recent interview, Jim Ross spoke about Jerry Lawler’s heart attack and how he felt as it happened on TV when he couldn’t do anything to help…

“I speak to him, and when we don’t talk, we text about everyday or two. He is doing great. He’s feeling great. He’s the luckiest man in the world, quite frankly. I don’t know where else he could have been, unless he was actually sitting in a doctor’s office, when that heart attack occurred, that he would be alive today…

I was at home in Norman [Okla.] and watching on TV. I don’t know if I’d ever felt a sense of helplessness. I don’t know how many hundreds of hours Jerry and I have broadcast together and coupled that with all the hundreds of hours we traveled together, it’s like having an older brother.”

When asked about his return to announcing, Ross stated that he is “taking it week to week” as far as his position on the broadcast team goes.
