As we previously mentioned, Jerry Lawler, semi-retired professional wrestler and WWE announcer, suffered a heart attack during a live broadcast of Monday Night Raw.
He was carried backstage by a medical crew and taken to the hospital.
We were unsure of his status until his ex-wife, Stacy Carter, tweeted:
Just got a @jerrylawler update. He had a stint & a balloon put in. Right now he is still heavily sedated. Will update when I know more

What he most likely had done was had a balloon insert into a clogged artery. It would have been blown up slightly to open up the way for blood, then a "stent" would have been insert.
A stent is a medical tube, in this case usually placed through a clot to allow blood to flow through unhindered.
We hope he pulls though this!
We know how serious a heart attack can be.
Feel better, Jerry!
