Corporate media covers the Jerry Lawler story

Several mainstream media outlets covered the Lawler story from yesterday’s RAW as the incident blew up on Twitter and other social media sites. Yahoo! Sports, Los Angeles Times, CNN, ABC News, CBS News, TMZ, The Examiner, Huffington Post, New York Post, Fox News, The Daily Mail and The Sun in the UK and others all carried articles on their front page regarding the incident. The story on CNN.COM was the most read article on the website at one point, even more popular than 9/11-related stories during the morning. The #PrayForLawler and #PrayForJerry hashtags were constantly trending worldwide on Twitter during the night and even this morning.
