Jerry Lawler Set to Appear at Court for Son Brian Christopher
Brian Christopher is a former WWE Superstar. He died in jail on July 29, 2018.
The reason of death was suicide. He was 48 years old. Many people in Lawler’s family did not believe the suicide report. The report was released from the Sheriff’s office. Lawler was actually seeking damages first as he alleged that there were "numerous failures of the county and its employees that resulted in the wrongful death of his son."
Lawler also wants Sheriff John Doolen to make sure something like this doesn’t happen in the future by making changes to protect inmates at the Hardeman County Jail. Lawler also made a filmed a PSA for the city of Memphis.
During that, he encouraged the people of Memphis Tennessee to wear masks to avoid the spread of the virus called COVID 19, which is the reason for most of the cities of the world shutting down. That commercial took place at the Graceland home of Elvis Pressley.
Lawler told fans that the commercial will be made available after it will be finished. Jerry Lawler is a former WWE wrestler and is known as Jerry “The King” Lawler. He is known as The King as he won the King of The Ring Tournament during his career.
