----This is not the only incident we have been getting word of with Christopher and that pic might have some people wondering about the black eye? Apparently Christopher was involved in a bar fight with some MMA guys from the Jamma origination in Jackson that Bill Dundee was helping promote. Christopher’s fight with the MMA guy had them fighting outside to the parking lot where they ran into some motorcycles. A scene right out of movie had the bikers then jumping him with like 4 guys beating him up and him still fighting the MMA guy. When it was finally broken up, Christopher was really beat up [two black eyes in the photo], but was still taunting the bikers and MMA guys. I was told some of the guys there said that he was one of the toughest “SOBs” they had ever seen.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT??
----This is the same ol’Brian messing up and doing the same crap. The word I got was that his news at the tapings in Memphis after talking to John Laurinaitis was not bad, but there was no promise of a job or anything. Apparently he must have got more news that was negative, because it seems he has “fallen off the wagon” again. Brian in a phone conversation with me after the Bishop incident stressed how he was clean and happy about his upcoming look by the WWE. He also said and told other people in his life he felt that this was his “last chance” at 37 years old at getting back in the WWE and it might have made him go over the edge if the outlook was not positive.
