Brian Christopher passes away at 46

It was reported earlier this morning that Brian Christopher had been rushed to the hospital late at night on July 28 after an attempted suicide. It has been confirmed by multiple outlets now that the former Tag Team Champion has indeed passed away.

Christopher was a one time WWF tag team champion with Scotty 2 Hotty and is most remembered as a member of Too Cool along with Scotty and Rikishi. Christopher was the son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler. He was 46.

We here at Wrestling-Edge would like to send his family our deepest condolences.

    Hate to agree with you but you’re right.

    Poor Jerry.

    I feel bad for Jerry. He already had watched his best friend burn in a car accident, was the first person to realize Owen had died in the ring and now this. I can’t imagine having to be the one to tell him this.

    How come I’m not seeing articles about Brickhouse Brown passing away? This is just a sad day.

    It is too bad, such a young age to die.

    The guy has been a mess most of his adult life. Drink and drugs, and seeming lack of any motivation to stop. I am not blaming his father, but I do think he was not exactly a great role model, and that must have at least played a part in his lack of thought for his own well being.

    He has been in and out of trouble with the law through the years, and he obviously finally reached the bottom and his personal demons got the better of him.

    As I said in the other story, he really did need someone to step in and help him, but I doubt he would have accepted that help.

    I’ll never forget the match he and Scotty had when they were Too Much against the Hardy Boyz. It was a dark match on the 9/28/98 Raw, the night Stone Cold drove the Zamboni to the ring. Even off the air he played his cocky heel role perfectly and got the crowd to feed off his energy. No matter what anyone thought of his in ring ability, he was an excellent performer and an amazing story teller. RIP Brian, your demons can’t haunt you anymore.

    Yes it is a shame, but if it’s suicide, what else would it have been??

    Such a shame to go so young, i just hope it wasn’t his personal demons
