Pro Wrestlers Understand Need for Substance Abuse Education

by Mike Miller June 7, 2013

For the second time in two weeks the child of a professional wrestler has been arrested for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. This time it was Brian Christopher, son of WWE Hall of Fame star Jerry "The King" Lawler

The man known as "Grand Master Sexay" of the WWE was arrested back in April. Like many DUI recipients Christopher was pulled over for a minor traffic infraction, failing to stop at an intersection. As reported in

At the time of his arrest, Christopher admitted to drinking more than half a liter of vodka and taking a mix of methadone and Xanax before getting behind the wheel of the vehicle.

How can a sane person get behind the wheel after consuming that cocktail of drugs and alcohol?

Brian came to prominence in the WWE as part of the tag team Too Cool along with Scotty 2 Hotty. The two were known to dance as they came to the ring, and then after their matches they would dance again for their fans with the Samoan wrestler Rikishi. He was at the height of his popularity from 1997 to 2001.

After that, he bounced around between TNA Wrestling and some independent promotions but has never made it back to the big stage.

This is not Brian’s first alcohol-related incident. In 2009, he was arrested for disorderly conduct and then for public intoxication when he threatened a police officer. He did time at an in-patient treatment center for that infraction.

I would hope that Brian gets a proper drug and alcohol class and counseling to help him deal effectively with his addiction issues.
