Chris Harris

"Wildcat" Chris Harris

REAL NAME: Chris Harris
6' 3", 232 pounds
BORN: Fort Wright, Kentucky
NICKNAME: Wildcat

"Wildcat" Chris Harris, a former multiple time tag team champion with "The Tennessee Cowboy" James Storm as America’s Most Wanted, became a singles competitor after his partner deliberately split up the team in a "Titles versus Team" match against LAX. After smashing a bottle over Harris’s head in the match, Storm would effectively not only disband the six-time tag team champions, but also begin a long-running feud with Harris.

Harris, selling the bottle incident by wearing an eye patch, returned to TNA a couple months following the LAX match to seek payback. Storm, apparently wanting no part of it, would run away until finally, at Lockdown, Harris got his one-time partner in the ring. Harris, however, would lose in the blindfold cage match.

Ripping off his eye patch on Impact in the weeks that followed, Harris would continue after Storm. The bad blood spilled over into Sacrifice, where Harris defeated Storm. They’d meet again three weeks later on Impact in a King of the Mountain match that ended in a double disqualification.

Harris’s next major feud would be with Black Reign when the former Goldust appeared at Victory Road to interfere with Harris in his match against Christian Cage. For a couple weeks, Black Reign would attack Harris during his matches and demolished him (and lost by disqualification in the process) at Hard Justice. Harris, however, would settle the score, defeating Black Reign at No Surrender.

Harris’s following programs would be far more low key, as he participated in but didn’t win Gauntlet, Fight For the Right, and Feast or Fire matches.

In January 2008, it was announced that Harris and TNA had parted company. Later than month, Harris announced on his website that he had signed a deal with the WWE.

It took until July 8th for Harris to show up on WWE TV, when he debuted on ECW as Braden Walker, beating Armando Estrada. He was noticeably out of shape compared to his TNA run and was released on August 7, 2008 by WWE.
