It has been a sad day in the world of professional wrestling as it is being said that another former pro wrestler has just recently passed away. According to a source close to The Lawler Family, former WWE Tag Team Champion Brian Lawler has just passed away. The same source close to the finally confirms this, but the family is not ready to release a statement yet.
Brian Lawler competed in The WWE as Brian Christopher. He popularized himself in The Light Heavyweight Division as “Too Sexy” Brian Christopher after being a staple for The USWA Promotion. Brian Christopher even followed in the footsteps of his father, Jerry “The King” Lawler. Christopher ditched his cocky character before donning a hip-hop style persona as Grandmaster Sexay. Christopher started teaming with Scott Taylor (Scotty 2 Hotty) to form the team known as Too Cool. The success of the team led them to a reign as WWE Tag Team Champions in the year 2000.
Since his release in 2001, Christopher has mostly competed for independent promotions, but made a short appearance with Taylor (Scotty 2 Hotty) in 2014 in an attempt to win The NXT Tag Team Championships.
Christopher was hospitalized after hanging himself in jail last night, and he was not expected to recover. Christopher was 46 years old when he passed away.
Our condolences to the family and friends of Brian Christopher.
