There’s a lot of confusion going on regarding WWF Attitude Era wrestler Brian Christopher (a.k.a Grandmaster Sexay’s) current health status.
Some sources are reporting that he has passed away, while some are reporting that he’s still alive. While there’s still no clarification available, one thing is for sure – Brian Lawler (son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler) isn’t expected to survive.
Dave Meltzer provided the latest update regarding this situation and noted that Matt Riviera told him that Brian is still on life support and they haven’t pulled the plug. Matt was in touch with the hospital Brian was admitted to and he’s also a friend of Jerry Lawler (he recently faced him in a match).
While Riviera says they haven’t pulled the plug on the life support, many others pointed out to Meltzer that the plug was pulled hours ago and Brian is no more.
It’s just a matter of time that Brian’s death will be officially announced.
In light of recent events, we are extremely sad to hear the news of the passing of Brian Christopher AKA Grandmaster Sexay. He was always good to us when we did shows with him. Watched him put smiles on countless kids faces. We all have our struggles. Hope he is at peace now.?? pic.twitter.com/qkhWtvs7IC

Regarding Jerry Lawler not bailing Brian out of the jail, Meltzer noted how Jerry has always pulled Brian out of trouble for so many years and thought he needed to learn a lesson this time. The bail was set at $40,000. However, Brian couldn’t handle being in jail and hung himself.
