A WWE statement added: “WWE is saddened to learn that Brian Christopher Lawler, who is best known in WWE as Too Cool’s Grandmaster Sexay, has passed away.

“Lawler, who is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler, competed during the height of the Attitude Era.

“WWE extends its condolences to Lawler’s family, friends and fans.”

Lawler was serving time in prison after being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and failing to stop for police officers who attempted to pull him over.

He was a favourite in the WWE between 1997 and 2001, appearing alongside Scotty 2 Hotty in the Too Cool tag team. The duo won the WWE Tag Team Championship once.

Although he was still wrestling in the professional scene, it has been reported that Lawler suffered financial issues in his personal life in the build up to his arrest.

He was hospitalised earlier this year following a fight with former TNA star Chase Stevens in a hotel room in Indiana.

It was reported that Lawler suffered a broken nose and a fractured skull during the altercation.

There were hopes that Lawler’s arrest would be a turning point for him, with the WWE reportedly willing to offer help upon his release.
