The next time a doctor tries to tell you that you have a chemical imbalance in your brain, ask him to "test the chemical balance" and watch for the look on his face.

    He did show up in TNA, very very briefly -- maybe even just one show? -- four or five years ago.

    Sad story all around. He did some nice stuff, particularly the DDP angle.

In the wiki article for Kanyon, it mentions that he appeared at Turning Point 2005 as Chris K and lost to Raven.

There seems to have been some confusion about whether he was actually gay or if it was just an elaborate publicity stunt. From the same wiki article:

    Originally posted by Wiki
    In 2006, after Kanyon's release from WWE, he began doing a gimmick in which he was an openly gay pro wrestler. This included a publicity stunt wherein he stated that WWE released him from his contract because of his sexuality. Despite making statements to the contrary, he was in fact gay.

They seem to have quoted it from the Wrestling Observer.

Kanyon was the subject of Deadspin's latest "Dead Wrestler of the Week".

http://deadspin.com/5512595/dead-wrestler-of-the-week-chris-kanyon

In that column, here's how the author put it:


    At an indie show in 2006, Kanyon outed himself as gay. There's some dispute as to his authenticity — he eventually backtracked, saying it was part of the character he was playing, and he later went on to recant that disavowal. More likely the waffling was evidence of an increasingly unsettled personality.

The WON obit says Kanyon was gay and spent most of his career trying to hide it, to the point where he was auditioning women for a $50K/year job where they'd pretend to be his girlfriend when he'd have his (often) parties and could do whatever she wanted the rest of the time.

Man. When it all got started, the general consensus was "if the shows aren't in competition, what's the point?" Well, now they're competing. Smile, god dammit.
