He officially became a wrestler in 1990 in the United States Wrestling Association (USWA). Chris tagged with both his brother Kevin and longtime ally Chris Adams in several tag team matches against manager Percy Pringle and "Stunning" Steve Austin; however, he would face only Pringle whenever he was in the ring, and allow his more-experienced partner to battle Austin. Despite his lack of athleticism, Chris was very popular with fans, who would often chant their support during his matches.
Chris had several health problems that limited his success as a wrestler. In addition to asthma, his bones were so brittle from taking prednisone that he would often break them while performing simple wrestling maneuvers. After the 1987 suicide of his brother Mike, Chris developed depression and drug issues. Frustrated and depressed over the deaths of his brothers and the inability to make headway as a wrestler due to his physical build, Chris shot himself in the head on September 12, 1991, eighteen days before his 22nd birthday.
