WWE announcer Jerry 'The King' Lawler suffered a heart attack and collapsed during a live broadcast of RAW on Monday night in Montreal.

During a tag team match between Kane & Daniel Bryan and The Prime Time Players, viewers may have noticed members of the audience and WWE production team staring toward the commentary booth, as well as the absence of Lawler's voice.

It is understood that the WWE Hall of Famer collapsed at the announcers' table and was tended to in the locker room area by WWE medical staff. The 62-year-old was then taken from the arena to a hospital in Montreal.

WWE have released the following statement on its official website: "Jerry 'The King' Lawler suffered a heart attack while commentating during last night's broadcast of Monday Night Raw in Montreal.

"We are hopeful Jerry makes a full recovery and returns to WWE in the near future. Our thoughts are with Jerry and his family."
