In the latter half of the 1990's and early 2000's we finally started seeing new faces pop up in the WCW normally from their Power Pant. Fast forward two years and Chris Harris was one of the many up and comers to join the roster of a brand new company called NWA:TNA. It was fairly early after the formation of the company that he would join and form a tag team with James Storm. The tag team would be called America's Most Wanted and they would become the face of the promotions tag team division for many years before going their separate ways.
While he and James would lead the tag team charge the company would give Harris a few opportunities as a singles competitor. However, it became a little clearer that Harris was missing something really didn't have what it took to hold a singles run. I remember of his pushes when he was included in a King of the Mountain match and we thought this would start his push but nothing ever came of it. I think when you look at his WWE run you know what he was missing from the arsenal. The interesting side of it is that James Storm would develop his microphone skills over the years and things never got better for Harris. Overall it goes back to some talent having the skills to reach a higher peak in a tag team over singles.
Honestly I think that Chris Harris belongs in the company's hall of fame just based on the impact that he had on the company in the early days. For those who don't know James & Harris much like the Public Enemy had been long time opponents before becoming a team which was one of the reasons that management wanted to put them together. Now I do think that Harris more likely belongs in the hallowed halls just due to America's Most Wanted as the collective team has more accomplishments then Harris alone.
The one stop shop for all things TNA Wrestling. At first you may not agree, but every now & again you might be surprised.
