In response to the tragedy that we saw with Silver King's death being mishandled, MLW became the first wrestling promotion to announce that all of its referees will be trained in CPR going forward, and will receive additional training in quickly recognizing potentially serious health issues so they can call for help quickly. 

I think this is a good move.  WWE officials seem to be pretty quick to get help, but I never heard that they were required to know CPR too.  And I believe that almost every state athletic commission requires an ambulance and an EMT to be standing by backstage.  I remember hearing that a few indy shows here and there were postponed for a few minutes while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.  That did not seem to the case in England.
