ORIGINAL STORY: 4:40 PM

In regard to stories that former WWE star "Grandmaster Sexay" Brian Christopher Lawler has passed away, that is not true.

Lawler, according to several sources close to the family, is currently on life support.  His family members are currently with him.   While his passing is, sadly, inevitable, technically he has not passed away.

As noted on PWInsider.com earlier today, Lawler was taken to the hospital following an incident last night at the Hardeman County Sheriff's Department in Bolivar, TN where Lawler, allegedly, attempted to take his own life.

PWInsider.com sends our best wishes to the Lawler family during a truly horrible time.
