MONTREAL - Professional wrestling commentator Jerry "The King" Lawler collapsed at a World Wrestling Entertainment event at Montreal's Bell Centre on Monday night.
WWE.com says Lawler collapsed at the announcers' table and was tended to in the locker-room area by WWE medical staff.
The website says Lawler was taken from the arena to hospital.
Broadcast partner Michael Cole addressed the television audience and said that the situation is "serious" but that Lawler is breathing on his own.
The 62-year-old Lawler mainly works on WWE broadcasts as a commentator but still occasionally wrestles.
