X-Pac opens today’s show by speaking about the death of Brian Christopher Lawler, better known for his time in WWE as Grandmaster Sexay. He says he’s very pissed off about the circumstances that led to Lawler’s death. Lawler was placed in solitary confinement, apparently for his own safety after he was arrested for a DUI, and ultimately hung himself.
X-Pac notes that he’s been in that situation, and solitary confinement is the worst possible place you can imagine. He adds that you mightn’t be suicidal before being placed in solitary, but that place can make you think bad things. He doesn’t think Lawler deserved to be placed in solitary for that length of time, especially since he wasn’t a dangerous person.
X-Pac points out that he loved Lawler, and spent a lot of time with him during the time they worked together in WWE. He’s just so angry that Lawler was placed in a situation where this outcome became a possibility. He notes that Lawler had his demons, but he loved him very much.
He was also very sad to hear about the passing of Nikolai Volkoff this past week. Volkoff recently suffered a heart attack and died due to heart complications after refusing surgery that could have lengthened his life. X-Pac calls Volkoff a wonderful, sweet guy who was a legitimate physical threat in real life.
