Jerry Lawler, family and friends say goodbye to Brian Christopher

Former WWE Superstar Brian “Grandmaster Sexay” Christopher was laid to rest in Memphis yesterday (Aug. 3). Christopher, the son of Memphis legend and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler, died Sun., July 29 after being found hanging in his jail cell the night before. His death is being investigated by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations.

But all of that was secondary at the memorial service, where Lawler, family and friends gathered to celebrate Christopher’s 46 years of life. In the below local news coverage of the funeral, The King said:

“He was an unforgettable character and he never met a stranger and everybody that met Brian loved him. So that’s the way I want him to be remembered.”

Our condolences to Lawler and all of his son’s family, friends and loved ones. Rest in peace, Brian. We’ll remember the good times.
