Christopher earned success in the promotion despite never being acknowledged as Lawler family until his debut in the WWE in 1997.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation revealed that the wrestling star was found dead in his cell Saturday morning.
Christopher later became well-known under a hip-hop style persona, dubbed "Grandmaster Sexay;" teaming up with Scott Taylor, under the alias, "Too Much", the two formed the team "Too Cool", becoming WWE Tag Team Champions in 2000.
Christopher is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler, a famous in-ring performer and color commentator. Condolences, thoughts, and prayers are being sent effusively over social media platforms Twitter and Facebook where fans are congregating to pay their respects to the Lawler family. May he rest in peace.
Christopher went by Grandmaster Sexay, one-half of the Too Cool tag team along with Scotty 2 Hotty.
Unfortunately, Lawler wasn't the only WWE star to have passed away on July 29, 2018.
Hardeman County Sheriff John Doolen has now issued a statement to WMC-TV in Memphis.
United States and Olympic wrestler Kurt Angle said it had been "a very sad day in the history of sports entertainment". The agency noted that he was booked on DUI charges, driving on a revoked license, and evading arrest. The duo was later joined by Samoan big man Rikishi, and one of the most popular trio acts in all of wrestling during that time period was born.
Dave Meltzer spoke about Christopher during Wrestling Observer Radio where he said Lawler hinted at helping his son get a job at the WWE Performance Center if he could stay sober long enough.
