Just to confirm, Nikolai Volkoff, Brian Lawler and Brickhouse Brown have all passed away. Very sad day for pro wrestling.— Dave Meltzer (@davemeltzerWON) July 29, 2018
Longtime wrestling fans may remember Lawler as one-third of the trio known as Too Cool along with "Scotty 2 Hotty" (Scott Garland) and WWE Hall of Famer Solofa Fatu, better known as "Rikishi Phatu". During their time together in WWE's Attitude Era, Grand Master Sexay and Scotty 2 Hotty captured the WWE World Tag Team Championship in May of 2000, and Rikishi also held the Intercontinental Championship in June of 2000.
