Jerry “The King” Lawler Opens Up About His Son’s Passing – Reveals He Doubts Brian Committed Suicide

As we have been reporting over the last few weeks, former WWE Superstar Brian Christopher Lawler, son of Jerry Lawler, passed away after apparently taking his own life by hanging himself in his jail cell in Tennessee.

Jerry “The King” Lawler discussed the passing of his son Brian on the latest episode of the Dinner with The King podcast. Lawler opened up and revealed the events and details of the day of Brian’s apparent suicide. Jerry talked about how he was aware that Brian needed help, and even how he had to identify the body.

The thing that Lawler said which was most note worthy, was that he has doubts as to whether or not his son Brian actually committed suicide.

Regarding the situation surrounding the apparent suicide of his son Brian Christopher, Jerry said:

“I have doubts as to whether Brian really did actually commit suicide. The Tennessee Bureau Of Investigation is working on investigating what happened at the jail. I don’t have any results from that yet, but I have my doubts as well.

We’ve been contacted by inmates who were in the jail with Brian and they don’t believe what was told was actually what happened. We’ve been contacted by another person who witnessed… I probably shouldn’t say any more because this investigation is ongoing and it may take a long time to get sorted out.

I don’t want to believe that Brian committed suicide but by the same token, if there is something else involved, I don’t know if it will bring Brian back, I don’t know if it will make it better or worse. We just want to know what actually happened because right now there’s a lot of doubt and a lot of questions that are going to have to be answered in the next few months.”
