Anderson wrestled for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling during their final years, from 1999 till the bitter end in January 2001.
Later on, he appeared at the 2005 ECW (WWE) One Night Stand and then became a member of the ‘WWE ECW on ScyFy’ roster, but only wrestled 1 televised match on the show before being released in 2007.
Chris then went back to independent wrestling, which is where he is still working today.
