According to Brown, who spoke to The Commercial Appeal, the renowned professional wrestler is recovering from a stroke in a hospital in Fort Myers. According to Brown, Lawler planned to spend this week at the condo he owns in Fort Myers after travelling to Florida last week for the Old Time Comic Show’s “Heroes Meet Horror Con” on February 4 in Punta Gorda.
Brown claimed he had a FaceTime conversation with Lawler, 73, early on Tuesday afternoon and left feeling very upbeat.
I feel much better than I did 18 hours ago, when I felt like I got hit in the face with a shovel, he said. “Some of the initial reports were just horrible.” “After I conducted a FaceTime, I felt incredibly inspired. Jerry was on guard. He spoke with me. He could only speak in short bursts, which is fairly typical. However, he was still able to move both arms and both legs.
I am very hopeful that he will eventually make a full recovery. When Lawler and Lance Russell announced the enduring Saturday morning “Classic Memphis Wrestling,” Brown and Lawler became friends.
