Here's your Fight Size wrestling Update for the morning of July 30th, 2018.
- The passing of Brian Christopher Lawler, Nikolai Volkoff, Tracy Caddell and Brickhouse Brown took the wrestling world by storm yesterday. Many sent out their love and condolences to the respective wrestlers' families but one individual who was not so positive was former 3-time ECW World Tag Team Champion New Jack who had some harsh words for Jerry "The King" Lawler and his deceased son Brian.
New Jack wrote over his personal Facebook page: "This might not set too well with some of y’all and I could get less than 2 fucks,but I wrestled in USWA with Brian Christoper in 92 and he was a very little disrespectful fucker then,so fuck him and his daddy and for those of you who don’t like my post...fuck you too!!!"
