Brian Christopher, 46, was taken to the hospital last night after an incident at the Hardeman County Sheriff’s Department in Bolivar, Tennessee, according to PWInsider.
The report states that the situation is looking “dire” for Christopher and he’s not expected to recover. Family members are gathering to say their goodbyes.
According to other reports, Christopher hung himself in his jail.
The report also states a WWE source confirmed the company is aware of the situation.
As noted, Christopher was arrested earlier this month for a DUI and evading police in Tennessee, according to TMZ. Lawler was reportedly speeding and swerving around 1am on July 7 and failed to stop when police tried to pull him over.
Christoper, who is Jerry The King Lawler’s son, is known to WWE fans as Grand Master Sexay in the popular tag team, Too Cool, working alongside Scotty 2 Hotty (and Rikishi). He and Scotty won the WWE Tag Team Championship on one occasion.
Since his WWE departure in 2001, Christoper has had several short lived returns for the company, most recently teaming with Scotty 2 Hotty in a losing effort to The Ascension at NXT Arrival in February of 2014.
