What was supposed to be a night of celebration and spectacle turned into a disheartening and scary night as Jerry’ The King’ Lawler collapsed at the announce table on WWE Raw.

Medical staff came running to the fallen commentator. Confusion aroused in the crowd as all the wrestlers were quite worried. This happened on Sept 10 2012, in Montreal’s edition of the Raw episode. The company planned to honour the inaugural intercontinental champion. Many other superstars like CM Punk, John Cena, and Daniel Bryan starred in the show, but none mattered as Lawler lost consciousness.

Matt Striker was asked about the incident and Lawler to which he said, 

“I’ve always had respect for him. I look up to a lot of those guys almost in a father/son way or uncle/nephew kind of way. You respect and revere these people” (h/t Bleacher Report)

Thankfully the doctors were able to save Lawler, and he did return to Raw weeks later with a series of appreciation from crowds.
