That's fucked up. Hanging yourself because of a DUI. The guy was in a very dark place What a tragedy.
Another report on PWInsider (read iton411) says Kevin Lawler, his brother, has now confirmed it.
2Cool was crazy silly fun. One of my favorite live show moments was when Rikishi cleaned house (repeatedly) at the 2000 Rumble until GMS and S2H came in, calmed him with the glasses and danced..then got thrown out. Crowd ate out of their freakin hands.

He was a *GREAT* heel in Memphis and had some memorable feuds with Jeff Jarrett when they were both up and coming.
The end stips of one match was that the winner got to egg the loser. Jarrett won and instead of egging Christopher himself he picked kids out of the crowd from the Saturday morning Memphis show taping to do the honors while Christopher roasted all of them as he was taking his punishment. Gotta love Memphis wrasslin' RIP

He was on Jerry Lawler's show about a month ago And seemed in good spirits. In case you don't know, Jerry has a shown in the Memphis CW affiliate where he has a guest and they show old Memphis matches and talk about old angles. Anyway, Brian was on it and they were showing his heel stuff. So much more than the dancing idiot Vince made him become.
I can't say much because the last time he was brought into an organization here in West Virginia, I decided to treat him after the fact.
He may of been in good spirits recently but by the time I got him to his hotel about 3:30 or 4am, yes total shoot here, he'd been to the local strip club, had a double shot of Jeager, tried to get cocaine from a dealer outside on the streets, get weed, & then after I dropped him after the fact he went to the gas station next door to get a local prostitute... I seriously hope you're happy & in a better place than when I had one night with you Brian Lawler. RIP, sir.

I just watched the show, and I don't have much to add, other than this: I noticed some of the women -- at least Gail, Velvet, and So Cal Val -- were wearing black armbands with red "A"s on them. Anyone know what's up with that?
