AS I SEE IT – The Scariest Night in Wrestling History?
Pro Wrestling: Between the Sheets
Hell didn’t freeze over, as I suggested it might last week. Instead, we had what was likely the scariest night in wrestling history, or for that matter in live television, period. People looking for their three hours of escape were instead confronted with an off-screen battle of someone fighting for his life that they’d been listening to only minutes before. As anyone not living in a cave is well aware, Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack while commentating at the Monday Night RAW telecast that was to feature the return of Bret Hart to Montreal, for the first time in a WWE ring since 1997.
“Where’s Beth?” I asked my friends. I mean, it was bad enough she wasn’t wrestling for the Divas title at SummerSlam, but now she wasn’t even dancing with Kevin Rudolph? Was she not going to be on the show at all?! Apparently not. I left Staples Center pretty disappointed.
