Christopher "Chris" Murphy (born January 13, 1978), better known by his ring name "Chaotic" Chris Murphy is an American professional wrestler. He is currently unsigned.

Career

Extreme United Wrestling (EUW)

Murphy began his professional wrestling career with a bang. After wrestling in the indies for years upon years, he finally decided it was time to move up to the big leagues. In January 2008, he was noticed by an EUW talent scout while wrestling an indy show. After all the necessary preparations, Chris debuted on the February 4, 2008 edition of Monday Night Suicide, with a big win over three other men in an Extreme Rules Fatal-4-Way. This same success was repeated just a week later, when Murphy won another Fatal-4-Way. Chris had his first pay-per-view appearance at EUW Back 2 Roots 2008, where he was booked in a tournament to decide the number one contender for EUW's Pure Championship. Murphy defeated Ben Stone in the first round but was upset by Alex Falcon in the second. Chris got his chance to redeem himself the following week on Monday Night Suicide, where he was paired with Evan Black against Falcon and Matt Rodriguez. The team of Black and Murphy were victorious. Shortly after his tag team match alongside Evan Black, Chris Murphy and EUW management were involved in an argument that resulted in Murphy's departure from the company.

After EUW

After his departure from Extreme United Wrestling, Chris found himself interested in the mixed martial arts scene. However, he quickly discovered that the scene wasn't quite as interested in him. After a few tryout matches, it was pointed out to Murphy that his fighting style was too flashy and wrestling-oriented for MMA. Now facing the warm summer days of July with no work save for the occasional independent booking, Chris was torn. After his problems in EUW, he wasn't sure if he was cut out for the full sports entertainment experience. After another month of independent bookings, he had made a decision: he wanted to return to the big time. He trained hard for three grueling months, continuing his independent career and becoming a more and more dangerous competitor over time. Finally, on a particularly chilly November day, Murphy discovered Fearless Championship Wrestling, a federation somewhere between his lowly independent work and the overly glamorous world of EUW. It was a very comfortable medium, and Chris was interested. He put in the call.

  • Entrance description
    • The opening of "Ride The Lightning" by Metallica begins roaring over the speakers and red lights flash frantically to the thrashing tune of the music. When the beat of the song changes at 12 seconds in, "Chaotic" Chris Murphy comes charging past the curtain with a baseball bat clutched in his hand and raised above his head. He begins stalking down the ramp, interacting with the fans as he goes. When he reaches ringside, he pounds on the steel ring steps with the baseball bat in tune with the song's drums. He then leans his bat against the turnbuckle post and jumps onto the apron. He stands with his back to the ropes and raises his fist, basking in the crowd's approval with a grin, then steps into the ring between the middle and top ropes. He goes to the center of the ring then points at all four turnbuckle posts in turn, signalling for a burst of red pyrotechnics to explode from each, before dropping to one knee and punching the mat, signalling for another blast, this time from all four posts simultaneously. After sitting with his head down for a few moments, waiting for the sparks and smoke to clear, Murphy stands and walks calmly to the corner to wait.

  • Wrestling style
    • Chris is, for the most part, an all-arounder. He does, however, tend to rely on powerful strikes to wear down opponents. He is also known as a risk taker, and will not hesitate to put his own body on the line to pull off a spectacular aerial- or weapon-based move.
