Chris Adams Documentary Being Released This Weekend

Courtesy of Main Event Radio's Steven Wilson:

Gentleman's Choice is a documentary on the life and times of WCW star Gentleman Chris Adams by director Mickey Grant. I had contacted him about the project a while back, and heard back from him today with info that the documentary will be released this weekend at the following address (http://gentleman.eyesoda.com)

For more details on the film check out its profile on Grant's film website via http://www.creativehat.com/gentlemans_choice.htm

Description: This is the story of the rise and fall of a real-life, super hero wrestler, "Gentleman" Chris Adams. Chris was born in England, where he studied professional judo. He came to the United States in the early 80s, where he became a professional wrestler. He fought with many of the top wrestling leagues, and achieved notable fame and popularity for a while. His lifestyle, however, overtook him, and he came spiraling down. He died in 2001, awaiting trial for the overdose-death of his girlfriend one year before. Chris' ex-wife, Brandi died a few months later from an overdose, leaving a young daughter behind with no parents.

Those who knew Chris remembered his charming, warm personality, a clever sense of humor, and a fabulous British accent. They also remembered his darker, violent side, which could come out at unpredictable moments. And not everyone was aware Chris had an addiction to alcohol and drugs, and liked to play with dangerous
combinations of the two.
