The Memphis Grizzlies Grizz Girls were performing on the court last night during the Grizzlies/Timberwolves game when they were joined by a pair of WWE Hall of Famers in Rikishi and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler. If you start watching at around the 1:10 mark, the pair joins the Grizz Girls in a performance. The Grizzlies were celebrating “Memphis Grizzlies Wrestling Night”. This was all to honor Lawler’s late son Brian Christopher.

Lawler wore his son’s entrance vest and adopted the “Grand Master Sexay” nickname as a one night member of Too Cool to pay homage to Brian Christopher. Rikishi would go on to post the following on twitter after the performance.

There was also a match during the game in which Lawler was dubbed as having won his 170th career championship. You can see that below. The match was Jerry Lawler and Rikishi vs. the Steiner Brothers who had Buff Bagwell in their corner. It was for the GCW Tag Team Championships.
