The Commercial Appeal has posted a new article, looking at the grandson of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler and the son of late former WWE Superstar Brian Christopher Lawler, Blake Lawler. Blake is part of the wrestling team at Christian Brother High School. He said,
“What inspired me wasn’t really my granddad or my dad, who were both in the WWE. Really it was more my stepdad and stepbrother. They both went to Christian Brothers and wrestled here and I wanted to continue that tradition of CBHS wrestling.”
Jerry Lawler added the following, “It’s really cool to see the wrestling thing. What it makes me think of is how proud his dad would have been of him. We’re certainly proud of him as well, but Brian, that would have just made his life to know that Blake was sort of following in the footsteps.”
Blake’s father, Brian Christopher Lawler, passed away in July 2018 after hanging himself while in jail.
