WWE announcer and Hall of Fame wrestler Jerry "The King" Lawyer apparently collapsed at ring-side during tonight's live "Monday Night Raw" telecast and was undergoing CPR, co-announcer Michael Cole told the television audience just after 10:20 p.m.

Cole emphasized Lawyer's medical situation was not part of a storyline. Lawyer had wrestled earlier in a tag-team match with Rsandy Orton as his partner, returning to the announce table during the next commercial break before collapsing.

"This is not part of the show," Cole said, with a somber look on his face. "This is not part of entertainment."

Cole said Lawler was taken to a local hospital in Montreal after receiving CPR at the scene.
