WMC Action News 5 out of Memphis has published a new article on the death of former WWE star Brian Christopher, and the article furthers claims by both WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler, Christopher’s father, and Lawler’s attorney, that they don’t believe the reports of Christopher’s alleged suicide attempt.
“This has been a nightmare, as you can imagine, from the moment I got the call saying that Brian hung himself,” Jerry said.
What makes it even worse, Jerry Lawler does not believe his son Brian actually hung himself in the Hardeman County Jail on July 29.
“Brian being my son, I knew him, everybody around him who knew him and they all have expressed doubts,” Jerry said.
Jerry’s lawyer Ted Hansom said that includes inmates with his son at the Hardeman County Jail.
“We’ve received literally countless calls, text messages from people, actual eyewitnesses, that were in the jail and saw things that happened on the actual day that Brian died that now has opened up a new can of worms,” Jerry said. “It just doesn’t seem like it was suicide.”
“I talked to Brian Saturday morning 11 o’clock the day he died,” Jerry added. “He talked perfectly normal, perfectly rational.”
A couple of hours later Jerry Lawler’s fiancée Lauryn got a call from the jail.
“Lauryn got a call about 2 in the afternoon that said Brian had been in a fight in the jail,” Jerry said.
Jerry said the fight was described as no big deal.

“An inmate was actually playing cards with Brian when the altercation happened when Brian got hit,” Jerry said.
Jerry said witnesses described Brian as bleeding from the head asking for medical help that he apparently didn’t get at the jail.
Then four or five hours later, the call came in that Brian had hung himself.
“It just doesn’t pass the smell test,” Jerry said.
Another reason Jerry believes that is because of photos of Brian taken in the hospital before he died.
Jerry said the sheriff told his fiancée that Brian used his shoestrings to hang himself. The photos show marks on either side of Brian’s neck, but not in the front of his neck.
“Just look at his neck and look at his hand,” Jerry said. “You can see the lines on his neck all the way around here to here and what would be the length of your hand as if he was trying to keep the pressure off.”
