Wrestling: Kanyon
WHO'S BETTER THAN KANYON?

"WHO'S BETTER THAN KANYON?"

Christopher Klucsaritis (1970-2010) was an American professional wrestler from Sunnyside, Queens, NY, best known for his time in WCW under the names Mortis and Kanyon from 1997-2001. The Mortis gimmick was based on the Mortal Kombat characters Reptile and Scorpion as part of the Blood Runs Cold feud with Glacier. After the feud ended, Mortis dropped the mask and gimmick and became Kanyon. He held the WCW World Tag Team Titles twice with Diamond Dallas Page and Bam Bam Bigelow as the Jersey Triad in 1999. After WWE bought WCW in March 2001, Kanyon was brought in as part of the WCW/ECW InVasion/Alliance storyline. During this time, WCW World Heavyweight Champion and WCW United States Heavyweight Champion Booker T awarded Kanyon the US Title, and he and DDP defeated the APA (Faarooq and Bradshaw) for the WWE World Tag Team Titles before losing them 12 days later to The Undertaker and Kane. He committed suicide on April 2, 2010 after years of suffering with Bipolar Disorder. Prior to WCW, he had also wrestled for Jim Cornette's Smoky Mountain Wrestling, ECW, and WWE as a TV Jobber. After leaving WWE in 2004, he competed in many independent promotions around the U.S. and Canada.

The Other Wiki has a good writeup on his career.

Not to be confused with Mortiis.
