He was found hanging in his jail cell in a jail near Memphis, Tennessee. After being found by guards in the jail, he was placed on life support.

He died at 4:40 pm EST. Some media reports had Lawler dying earlier in the day; however, they were inaccurate.

Lawler died with friends and family by his side. His father, WWE Hall of Famer and announcer Jerry “The King” Lawler and his brother Kevin was by his side.

“WWE is saddened to learn that Brian Christopher Lawler, who is best known in WWE as Too Cool’s Grandmaster Sexay, has passed away. Lawler, who is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler, competed during the height of the Attitude Era. WWE extends its condolences to Lawler’s family, friends and fans.”

He was arrested earlier this month for evading police. He also was charged with DUI after being caught.

Lawler worked for the United States Wrestling Association, the World Wrestling Federation (the former name for the World Wrestling Entertainment – WWE), World Wrestling All-Stars, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, and the independent circuit in his career.
