WWE

The wrestling world is left grieving after the death of former WWE champion Brian Christopher Lawler. Lawler, the son of former WWE wrestler and color commentator Jerry Lawler, went by the stage name Grandmaster Sexay and was one half of the wrestling duo Too Cool.

Earlier this month, Lawler had been arrested and sent to jail after police had tried to pull him over and the former wrestler led them on a chase. He was booked for DUI and evading arrest, and bail was set at $40,000.

On July 29, while in prison, TMZ reported that Lawler had been found in his jail cell after attempting to hang himself. Guards found the former wrestler and took him to the hospital, where he was placed on life support in critical condition. Just hours later, it was confirmed that Lawler had passed away. His father, brother, and other family members were with him when he passed.
