• Jerry Lawler Doesn’t Believe Brian Christopher Committed Suicide – Investigation Going On Regarding Foul Play
During the latest edition of ‘Dinner With The King’ podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler discussed the passing of his son, former WWF Attitude Era wrestler Brian Christopher (a.k.a Grandmaster Sexay).
Below is what Lawler had to say about the unfortunate incident:
“I have doubts as to whether Brian really did actually commit suicide. The Tennessee Bureau Of Investigation is working on investigating what happened at the jail. I don’t have any results from that yet, but I have my doubts as well.
We’ve been contacted by inmates who were in the jail with Brian and they don’t believe what was told was actually what happened. We’ve been contacted by another person who witnessed… I probably shouldn’t say any more because this investigation is ongoing and it may take a long time to get sorted out.
I don’t want to believe that Brian committed suicide but by the same token, if there is something else involved, I don’t know if it will bring Brian back, I don’t know if it will make it better or worse. We just want to know what actually happened because right now there’s a lot of doubt and a lot of questions that are going to have to be answered in the next few months.”
