Images of the incident have been posted on the Internet, and they are pretty gruesome. Be warned as they maybe not safe for viewing at work or school.
Brian Lawler, better known as Brian Christopher / Grandmaster Sexay, had been badly injured after a fight with Jonathan Ryan Clark better known as Chase Stevens, in Evansville, Indiana on February 18th. As seen in the booking photo below, Clark was arrested and charged with "Battery - Serious Bodily Injury."
Dave Meltzer reported that Lawler suffered a fractured skull, a broken nose, broken orbital bone and had teeth knocked out. Lawler was reportedly intoxicated when police found him in the hotel lobby.
The fight took place in Stevens' hotel room, and WrestlingInc were sent the photo above of Lawler after the fight. The Observer noted that it could have been even worse, however employees at the hotel heard the commotion and took action. Clark was a Golden Gloves boxing champion when he was younger. Stevens worked a indie show in Clarksville, TN the following weekend.
Many days later after the fight a GoFundMe was created for Lawler, which stated that Lawler had suffered 'a bad home accident' in Memphis that left him with several broken bones. The GFM was set up by Mike Dickinson, who is Lawler's manager. It's since been deleted.
