• Jerry Lawler Tried To Help Brian Christopher Get A Job At The WWE Performance Center, Brian Tried To Commit Suicide Before As Well

During a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler tried to help his late son Brian Christopher get a job at the WWE Peformance Center.

Below is what Meltzer said (credit to Wrestlinginc for transcription):

“Jerry had told Christoper many times that if you can clean yourself up for a year I’ll get you a job. You know whether it’s a trainer at the Performance Center which is kind of like what he was hinting or something, but ‘you’ve got to clean yourself up for a year.’ There would be periods where he would get clean to a degree, but it never lasted a year. I know one of his friends told me a couple of months and another one said that you know, his version of clean – the ‘wrestler version of clean’ is that he was on methadone and things like that.”

Meltzer also revealed that Brian tried to commit suicide before as well:

“I think there was a suicide attempt before that not too many people know of, I didn’t even know of until today, three or four years ago.”
