Smith Hart, brother of WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart, says he was told by a friend backstage at Monday's Raw at Centre Bell in Montreal, Quebec, Canada that Jerry Lawler was "clinically dead" for twenty minutes before being revived by a defibrillator.
He wrote on Twitter, "According to my friend Jeremy Prophet who was backstage at RAW, Jerry was clinically dead for 20 min before being brought back by defibrilat."

I think Smith likes to stretch the truth a bit... I'm not a medical mark, but what are the odds they'd continue frying a guy to get him to wake up after twenty minutes? I believe he could have been dead and brought back, but twenty minutes seems a little unlikely.
As for the ROH discussion, I'd book it where Steen beats Lethal in October and eliminates him from action for a few months, that way Lethal can return hardened. Steen is a GREAT big wrestler; he is a bigger guy than me yet he does some cruiserweight moves in-ring, so I'm alright with him holding the title, but I am in your boat, I don't buy his character. Pretty impressed with Elgin's strength too. They parade Ryback around with his strength yet he's not even the most impressive guy in the WWE; Antonio Cesaro's dead lift float-over suplexes are a sight to behold
