In a tweet from Jerry Lawler's official Twitter account, The King was seen in a series of photos with longtime friend and fellow WWE Hall of Famer "The Mouth of the SouthJimmy Hart and looked to be in good spirits.  The tweet (which appears to be written by someone else as it's not in the first person) informed fans of The King's condition, saying, "Update on Jerry: After suffering a massive Stroke Monday. He is now recovering in a Fort Myers, FL, hospital. His speech is limited, but with rehabilitation will regain a full recovery. He thanks everyone for the continued prayers and will be back in the near future."

It's great to hear Jerry Lawler is expected to make a full recovery, and it was very reassuring to see some photos of him looking well.  After the initial news report of his stroke, the most information we received came from his longtime broadcast partner Jim Ross, who tweeted, "I spoke very briefly with ⁦@JerryLawler tonight. He's obviously weak, but I could understand his affected speech. Jerry's prognosis is positive, but he needs all our thoughts and prayers. #LoveYaKing"

Wrestling fans of different generations around the world love Jerry Lawler, and we join them in wishing good health and a speedy recovery to one of the best to ever do it.  Get well soon, King!
