Multiple sources have noted that Brian Christopher’s situation was dire and it unfortunately only a matter of time until he succumbed to the injuries by way of the attempted suicide.
First of all, the sheriff of the county where Brian Christopher Lawler was incarcerated at the time of his death has spoken publicly. Lawler’s brother Kevin posted, saying “i love you and will miss you”.
“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”, Meltzer said.
Lawler was he son of Jerry Lawler, a former wrestler an legendary WWE star. Though his father also worked in the territory, his relationship with the elder Lawler was never acknowledged during broadcasts. Volkoff was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 after a wrestling career of 40-plus years. In mid-1998, the gimmick was dropped with the pair repackaged as hip-hop aficianados, dancing to the ring and after matches. Rikishi was also a member of the Too Cool group, and had some breakout success in the early-2000’s. Following his release from the WWE in 2001, after he was discovered smuggling drugs into the U.S. from Canada, Lawler had worked as part of the independent wrestling scene – returning briefly to the WWE in 2004 and 2011. He spent 2004 to 2011 wrestling for several independent promotions, before making another brief return to the WWE in 2011 in a segment with his father.
Although he was still wrestling in the professional scene, it has been reported that Lawler suffered financial issues in his personal life in the build up to his arrest. A month later he was jailed for 30 days after failing to attend an inpatient treatment centre as part of his plea agreement.
