Brian Christopher

Hey Scott,

Someone over on reddit has posted a scan of a WWF magazine from January 1998 (clearly written before Montreal):

One of the striking things about the issue is how high on Brian Christopher they were. Did they really have big plans for him? And if so, what actually happened instead?


For a while they thought he was gonna anchor their light heavyweight division, but once the Too Cool thing caught fire he had a series of drug problems and then got detained trying to cross into Canada with something untoward in his possession.  He was pretty much blackballed from the promotion after that, and you know there's gotta be bad blood since his dad has continued to work for them for another decade and they didn't even offer him a pity shot on one of their numerous anniversary wankfests.  And even TNA stopped using him after a while!
