Scotty 2 Hotty and Rikishi Remember Brian Christopher Lawler

Too Cool

Brian Christopher Lawler, the son of Jerry “The King” and a former WWE Superstar known as Brian Christopher and Grandmaster Sexay, died on Sunday. He was 46.

Lawler allegedly attempted suicide Saturday night by hanging himself in a jail cell just outside Memphis, Tennesee. He was discovered and rushed to the hospital, where he died surrounded by family and friends.

Lawler‘s longtime tag team partner Scotty 2 Hotty honored his friend with an Instagram post saying the pair created “magic that will never be replaced.”

Hotty — real name Scott Garland — posted a photo on Instagram of the last time he was in the ring with Lawler and Rikishi. He noted differences with his partner but said that all went out the window when their music hit.

“Brian and I were different people outside of the ring. We never traveled together, never roomed together, and never really hung out together,” Hotty wrote. “But, EVERY single time that we went through that curtain, we made magic together.”

He went on to say they truly were “too cool” and that he’d miss Brian.

Garland now works for WWE as a coach at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. His tribute follows a touching post by Rikishi on Monday.

“Brian’s living spirit was always his passion for adventure and love for the wrestling business,” he wrote. “What I will carry with me most is the Grandmasta’s infectious smile and wicked laugh but most of all is his passion to entertain each and every person he ever came in contact with.”

On Instagram, Hotty posted a photo of their last dance, which took place on December 26, 2015, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The trio last appeared together on WWE television on January 6, 2014, as they reunited to defeat 3MB in a Six-Man Tag Team Match on an “Old School” edition of Raw. This was the first time in over 13 years that the trio competed in a Six-Man Tag Team Match.
