Mini Bio (1)

Debuted in World Championship Wrestling in 1995 under the name Chris Kanyon. He was soon teamed up with Mark Starr, and they were given a construction workers gimmick and named Men At Work. In 1997 he became Mortis, a member of James Vandenberg's (James Mitchell) Collection Of Human Oddities. He later unmasked again to briefly be part of The Raven's Flock stable (led by Raven aka Scott Levy) and was simply known as Kanyon. After leaving The Raven's Flock, Kanyon went through numerous gimmick changes. His new gimmicks included being part of The Jersey Triad with Scott 'Bam Bam' Bigelow and Diamond Dallas Page ('Page Falkinberg') and being Chris 'Champagne' Kanyon, or CCK for short. His most recent gimmick was as 'Positively' Kanyon - a character which imitated every mannerism of Diamond Dallas Page, even claiming to have written an auto-biography entitled 'Positively Kanyon' (a take on Falkinberg's auto-biography 'Positively Page').
