OK, first of all, "'The Modern Day Warrior' Rob Adonis" is as unimaginative a wrestling moniker as it gets, stealing from both Kerry Von Erich (dead, but STILL the Modern Day Warrior) and Adrian Adonis.
Secondly, this guy:
is NOT Too Sexy Brian Christopher, is it?

Wow......he sure looks like his old man these days.
It says on the website that he "turned pro" in 2004. So it's someone just taking the name. I wouldn't be surprised if the guy's just trying to pay homage to Jerry Lawler, not realizing that Lawler's kid has used that name in the past.
There's so many to choose from, and I was going to go with "God's Property" Billy Jack (you gotta love a guy whose finishing move is called "It Is Finished")...but my personal favorite?
DA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA DA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA BATMAN...
Name: Batman – “Zero” Hometown: Atlanta, GA Height: 5’11 Weight: 215 lbs Born: 1986 Year Became Pro: 2005 Finishing Move: Top Rope Spinning Closeline Trainer: Rob Adonis
Gotta watch out for those top-rope spinning CLOSElines.
Ah, well. It's a worthy cause I guess. But...Batman? Really? His in-ring name is Batman? *shrug* Alrighty then.
When I first saw this thread, I though it was about Christian's new angle in TNA, or something to that effect. Silly me.

I believe you do see some so-called "rip off" characters in smaller independants. A few years ago the local access cable channel in my town was showing some wrestling at the area's K of C hall. One of the wrestlers went by the name of "Dark Vader" and he was dressed up like Kane.
TSN is partly owned by ESPN...but at the core, it's owned by BCE, who own, among other things, CTV, Bell, and the Globe and Mail. I'm not really sure that ESPN has much of a say in the running of the station.
