Back in 2012, one of the scariest moments on Monday Night Raw took place as Jerry 'The King' Lawler suffered a heart attack live on air whilst commentating on a match.
Working alongside Michael Cole, like they did every week, Lawler was calling a tag team match when the heart attack happened, and it was down to Cole's quick thinking that they managed to get through the match.
When camera angles turned into the right area, you could visibly see Lawler struggling in the background, clutching his heart and leaning over the announcer's table.

You could also hear deep breathing and heavy panting in the microphone as if someone had fallen asleep, and it was clear that something was happening when members of the audience focused their attentions on the commentators rather than the wrestlers.
On the WWE Network, there will be a documentary discussing the fateful night, with interviews with both Lawler and Cole, and the duo go back and relive what exactly happened when disaster struck.
To make things worse for WWE, it happened when Cole was portraying a heel, but due to the incident, throughout the remainder of the show Cole had to give medical updates about his colleague.
Cole received a lot of praise in the aftermath of the show, with everyone applauding him for how he dealt with the incident and how professional he remained.
However, speaking in the documentary, Cole revealed how he thought at first, Lawler was messing around and pretending to fall asleep during the match.
"I thought Jerry was pretending that he was sleeping," Cole recalled. "So I turned around to say to him, 'King, what are you doing?'
"As I turned around, Jerry was face-first on the announce table and he was literally snoring into his microphone. I said, 'Doc, get over here!'"
A scary moment for sure, but luckily enough, it wasn't a fatal moment for Jerry 'The King' Lawler.
