Gentleman's Choice, a documentary on the life and times of former WCW wrestler Chris Adams, is set to be released. Information on the documentary will be released this weekend at https://gentleman.eyesoda.com/ Here is the official description of the film:
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.
