Fox News Digital has contacted WWE for comment. Lawler appeared on the 30th anniversary of «Monday Night Raw» last month and reprized his role as a commentator.

Lawler’s fans took to social media to offer their prayers for the fighter known as «El Rey.»

Lawler has had health problems in the past. She suffered a stroke in 2018 and a heart attack while broadcasting live in 2012.

The Memphis native started in the ring in 1970 and quickly won the National Wrestling Alliance Southern Tag Team Championship with Jim White. In 1974, he won the NWA Southern Heavyweight Championship.

He would go on to build his reputation in the world of wrestling. He would perform in the Continental Wrestling Association, the American Wrestling Association, World Class Championship Wrestling, and a few others before finally landing in WWE in the early 1990s, which was then known as the World Wrestling Federation. He also had a major feud with comedian Andy Kaufman in between those years. Lawler would later reveal that the two were actually good friends and the feud was staged.

Lawler wrestled in WWE, but for those who delivered during the company’s «Attitude Era,» he was on the telecast with Jim Ross. The duo became the voices of an integral part of the era in which the WWF would feud with World Championship Wrestling (WCW). The rivalry would be part of the «Monday Night Wars».
