That was brutal to watch, especially already knowing what was going to happen. You can actually hear him choke a second as he grabbed his chest, and someone goes "Jerry!"
Then Cole just loses it for the rest of the show..
Brutal stuff, what a fucking shitty day/week/month/year this has been.
The good news is, he seems to be doing OK now, at least breathing on his own. If he was working in a small town as he often does, who knows what would have happened. I heard he was 'clinically dead' and they resuscitated him backstage before taking him to a hospital that was just down the road...

No they showed no part of Jerry on live TV. If you go on youtube there are some fan videos of the whole incident. WWE avoided airing anything with Jerry on. The match continued and Cole continued announcing. Jerry's mic was still on though and that's how you can hear the grunt and the snoring once he was unconscious.
I have an update on Jerry. The docs are removing his ventilation & taking him out of sedation. He is responsive, which is great!!! It took a while to revive him last night so there's the concern of brain damage. He had some tests done which will show how much if any damage there is due to the lack of oxygen to his brain. Unfortunately, the results won't be in until in the morning. I appreciate all the calls, texts, tweets, & Facebook messages of support & I know Jerry will too. Thanks everybody!!
From Brian Cristopher (Jerry's son) 1 hour ago:
Ok, here's the latest real update.
Lauren and I are here at the hospital in Montreal.
He does not look good at all.
He is responsive to questions that he is asked which is very good. His sedation and breathing support are being lowered slowly right now. He was shocked a total of 7 times at the arena and underwent a balloon stint to open up a clogged artery when he arrived at hospital. Everyone out there needs to say a special prayer for his brain at this point, please.
Tests on his brain will not be available until the morning.
One of us two will keep all you guys informed as we know more.
So it sounds like he is alive and responsive, but not out of the woods yet. Nobody knows if he has brain damage or not, since he can't talk yet.
It sounds like he was dead for at least 10-15 minutes (under 20 mins) so that means his brain was not getting oxygen for a long time.
As announced last Friday by WWE, the sports-entertainment organization came to terms on the release of Kelly Kelly, ending her six-year run with the company. Her departure had been expected since she decided to take a hiatus in late May.
According to The Wrestling Observer, those close to the situation thought it was likely her tenure was coming to an end after she was resistant on signing a long-term contract extension and had requested time off from the road. Company officials granted her time off under the belief that she would return full-time. However, those close to her say she wasn't sure about resuming a full-time schedule and was looking to pursue non-wrestling endeavors.
Her situation is similar to many other talents who have left the company, particularly women, in the past two years. She was forced to reject numerous media offers, either because WWE didn't want her involved or because WWE has made its product too kid-friendly that companies don't want to associate with them. The matter is tied to women, because of those limitations.
Since Kelly had already earned her downside guarantee for the year and had no intention on returning full-time, there was no money left for her to earn by not asking for her release. Plus, she wanted to pursue outside opportunities sooner rather than later.
During an advertisement campaign shoot last Thursday for Let It Fly Energy, an energy drink line, she received a text message from Paul "Triple H" Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent and Live Events. He informed her that by the terms of her contract, she needed to have a calendar that she planned to sell on her official website approved by the company. She had tweeted previews of some risqué lingerie pictures and the company demanded she take them down. She had no intention on calling off the project, which led company officials to cutting ties with her the next day.
Another factor in Kelly's resistance to remaining in WWE for several more years could be tied to her health since she had been dealing with neck issues from wrestling. WWE officials requested that she see Dr. Joseph Maroon, the company's medical director. She preferred to be examined by her own doctor. With the accumulated injuries, she wanted to stop wrestling full-time at the age of 25 rather than be physically broken down years later and too old to pursue entertainment opportunities. It is believed that she would have stayed with WWE had they allowed her to make occasional appearances.
WWE did not perceive Kelly as reaching a level known as the "Mick Foley deal," where a talent is under contract, works occasionally, and is free to pursue outside endeavors. WWE does not want create a precedent where talent have control over what they do, which is an issue currently affecting their relationship with Chris Jericho.
The ending to tonights RAW was great
With Vince actually firing the head writer of RAW, he turns tonights show around and is starting to make Vince Vs Punk something worth watching. Predictable moments in the last bit, after said weapon was drawn, but something to actually look forward to in terms of a build up.
*edit* it seems that CMPUNK punched a fan legit in the face as cameras cut away pretty quickly. uh oh
