Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson pays tribute to the late Brian Christopher

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson paid tribute to Brian Christopher, his former room mate and traveling partner while the two were part of the USWA.

“Spent all week trying to process the hard loss of my good bud, Brian Christopher Lawler,” The Rock wrote in a long post on Instagram. “He became a great friend the day I stepped foot in the small wrestling territory in the south known as the USWA to start my pro wrestling career.”

He explained how the two rode, trained, ate, wrestle, and shared motel rooms together during their early days, thinking what would life be under the bright spotlights of the WWE.

“Once we both finally made it to the big leagues of the WWE, nothing changed… we still did everything together. Including having nightly Madden tournaments after our wrestling matches in our motel room and then we’d extend our competitive spirit to a rowdy game of Wiffle Ball,” he continued.

“I’ll miss these times now even more. Hurts my heart to know how Brian decided to check out. I never knew him to be suicidal, but I guess sometimes the pain just gets to be too much for one to take,” Johnson wrote, before giving condolences to his family.
