Brian Lawler hung himself in a jail cell while he waited for someone to come up with a $40,000 bond after he was arrested on charges connected to a DUI three weeks ago.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Brian Lawler tried to kill himself 3 or 4 years ago as well. This is a very sad story about a boy always living in his father’s shadow.

Lawler had drug problems pretty much throughout his entire life. Even when he was clean, he was still not clean when it comes to true sobriety.

As always, while we continued reporting on this story, our thoughts are with everyone involved in this story whether you are a family member, friend, or fan.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
