Last week former WWE Brian Christopher died aged just 46.

He was best known for his run as Grandmaster Sexay, teaming with Scotty 2 Hotty and Rikishi as the hip-hop inspired faction Too Cool.

He was the son of WWE Hall of Famer and commentator Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler.

On Sunday, two days after Christopher’s funeral, Lawler wrestled at a USA Championship Wrestling event in Jackson Tennessee. He had been booked to appear on the show about six weeks prior, but chose to honour it, wrestling current WWE star James Elsworth.

Lawler paid tribute to his late son, wearing part of his old ring gear.

Elsworth called it the most emotional match of his career.
