• Jim Ross Comments On Brian Christopher’s Passing

During a recent edition of The Jim Ross Report, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross expressed grief over Jerry Lawler’s son, Brian Christopher’s passing.

Below is what JR said:

“I never quite understood the reason for that. I understand getting incarcerated for a DUI, or any other crime. I get that. But, in the solitary confinement? Unless you’re gonna say that it was for his own protection, I don’t know.

I loved calling his matches with The King during the Attitude Era, as many as already remarked on social media. Because I always had fun hinting that ‘Grandmaster Sexay’ was the King’s son. Good ole days, right? Good ole days.”
