We learned earlier in the day that Brian Christopher was found in his jail cell where he had hung himself. He was rushed to the hospital but not expected to recover.
We can now confirm that Brian Christopher has passed away at 46-years of age. This is a sad day, but he wasn’t the only death confirmed in the pro wrestling community today.
It was also confirmed that Brickhouse Brown also passed away. We previously reported that Nikolai Volkoff also passed away earlier this morning.
This is a very tough day for pro wrestling. We can only hope that we will have happier days, but at this time our thoughts are with everyone involved in all three situations.
Just to confirm, Nikolai Volkoff, Brian Lawler and Brickhouse Brown have all passed away. Very sad day for pro wrestling.
