UPDATE: Christopher was reportedly rushed to a hospital in critical condition and put on life support. Doctors told family and friends and that he was almost surely not going to make it and so those who needed to came by to say their final good byes did so. Sometime earlier today, the decision was made to remove him from life support. The family has not made any official statement and so the hospital is also refusing to officially confirm his death as per their privacy policy. However, multiple sources have confirmed that Brian has passed away. Jim Ross, a close friend of Jerry Lawler, also tweeted the following:

So saddened today re: the deaths of @WWE HOFER Nikolai Volkoff, #BrickhouseBrown, once targeted to replace #JYD, and #BrianChristopher, the talented son of the great, @JerryLawler#RIPGentlemen #CondolencesToAll

-- Brian Christopher, who wrestled in WWE as Grand Master Sexay, passed away today at age 46. He was recently arrested for DUI and attempted to commit suicide yesterday by hanging himself in his cell. He was found in dire condition, rushed to hospital but was not expected to survive and died this morning. Christopher is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler. More on this story as information becomes available.

If only he had inherited the clean living, teetotal lifestyle of his father.
 
We've had a number of threads over the years about bad situations for him. This terrible moment was sadly always in with a chance of happening.
 
He was an entertaining guy. Being in a tag team overshadowed in the era of the three TLC teams, it's easy to forget how popular he was.

Sad another wrestler dies so young. Too cool was hella over though but we're as adders said overshadowed by E and C, Hardys and Dudleys. I remember when they were tag champs round about 2000 or 2001.

I don't remember much of him after Scotty broke his ankle and too cool seemed to dissappear.
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

His three man tag team for me was more entertaining than The New Day gimmick.

People forget his brilliant heel work in 1997. Watch his match at IYH DX pay per view for this and his heelish dad on commentary bigging him up but denying rumours going around that it's his son LOL

Wouldn't blame the Lawler family if they open court proceedings with prison as to how he was allowed to commit suicide.

I remember when he drew a low number in the royal rumble one year king said "Grand Master Sexy?....I thought he was Lucker than this" and then bigging him up until he got eliminated and he said "Always a disappointment" or something g to that effect. Made me chuckle at the time because the smart fan in me had heard the rumours
