Brian Christopher Lawler (born January 10, 1972) is a professional wrestler currently performing for Memphis Wrestling and other independent promotions. He is son of professional wrestling legend Jerry "The King" Lawler and brother of wrestling referee Kevin Christian. [ [http://www.eddiegilbert.com/profile2.html Eddie Gilbert profile part 2 ] ] He is perhaps best known for his career in World Wrestling Entertainment where he performed as Grand Master Sexay as part of the tag team Too Cool with Scotty 2 Hotty and Rikishi.

Career

United States Wrestling Association (1988-1997)

During the early part of his career, Brian wrestled in the United States Wrestling Association under the name "Too Sexy" Brian Christopher. He was used as a top face as well as making his mark as one of the promotion's top heels. There, he feuded with wrestlers such as Jeff Jarrett, Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee, Tom Prichard, and the Moondogs. Among his partners were Tony Williams (as the New Kids), Doug Gilbert, Scotty Flamingo, and "Hot Stuff" Eddie Gilbert.

World Wrestling Federation (1997-2001)

Brian joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1997, still known as Brian Christopher, and began to compete in the fledgling lightweight division. Taka Michinoku defeated him in the finals of a tournament for the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship. In mid 1998, he started teaming up with Scott "Too Hot" Taylor to form the tag team of Too Much. For a while, he and Scott Taylor played up a quasi-homosexual angle that involved them speeding around on scooters/mopeds and culminated with Too Much riding off on the back of the Disciples of Apocalypse's motorcycles.

For a while, when Brian was known as Brian Christopher, his father Jerry Lawler didn't publicly acknowledge that Brian was his son, although Jim Ross (Jerry's broadcast partner) always hinted at it.

In late 1999, Brian and Scott adopted the ring names Grand Master Sexay and Scotty 2 Hotty, returning after a hiatus as heels. Their tag team was renamed Too Cool, and were later joined by Rikishi, becoming three of the company's top faces. They enjoyed an immensely popular run as Too Cool, as well as success in the tag team division, defeating Edge and Christian in May 2000 on "Raw" to become the WWF Tag Team Champions. They were even occasionally involved with top-card feuds, notably being enemies to the McMahon-Helmsley Faction and their associates, such as The Radicalz, Edge and Christian, and T&A. The trio's run ended in late 2000 when Rikishi was revealed as the man behind the wheel of the car that hit Stone Cold Steve Austin at Survivor Series 1999. Shortly after, Rikishi turned heel and turned on his teammates.

While Scotty was sidelined in 2001 with a broken ankle, Lawler formed a short-lived tag team with Steve Blackman and was later released from the WWF. He had been stopped on the Canadian border on his way to a show, and drugs were found in his car, leading to his termination.

World Wrestling All-Stars (2002)

On February 24, 2002, at the second WWA pay per view in Las Vegas, Lawler wrestled WWA Heavyweight Champion Jeff Jarrett for the title, but lost. In April 2002, Lawler wrestled in a fatal-four way match for the WWA World Heavyweight Championship at a house show for World Wrestling All-Stars but lost to Nathan Jones, Scott Steiner and Jeff Jarrett.

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2002-2004)

From June 2002 until April 2004, he worked for TNA Wrestling as Brian Lawler. He formed a group called Next Generation with fellow second generation stars David Flair and Erik Watts. They feuded with Dusty Rhodes and harassed him with a replica of the NWA World Title belt that he wore when he was champion.

World Wrestling Entertainment

In April 2004, he was signed back to the WWE roster as Jim Ross's last act as WWE talent scout. He only appeared in 3 matches, one against Kane, one against Christian, and the last one against Garrison Cade. He was released after only one month.

Independents

He currently wrestles for several independent promotions, including Memphis Wrestling, and competed in the inaugural CT Cup for the Connecticut promotion NAWF run by John Brooks and Fred Yale.

Lawler's most recent appearance in the mainstream spotlight was in an interview on "Anderson Cooper 360°" surrounding Chris Benoit and his family's deaths, and their possible links to steroids.
