YOU MAY THINK THAT SCOTT GARLAND HAS ONLY RECENTLY JOINED THE WWF, ALTHOUGH HE HAS BEEN WRESTLING FOR A LOT LONGER THAN YOU THINK. THE YOUNG SUPERSTAR IS A VETERAN
IN THE WWF. HE HAS BEEN UNDER CONTRACT WITH THEM FOR A DECADE NOW. HE HAS UNDER GONE MANY GIMMICKS,
AND POOR STORYLINE'S GIVEN TO HIM, BUT FINALLY SCOTT HAS MET HIS NICHE AS SCOTTY TOO HOTTY. THE NATIVE MAINER, BEGAN WRESTLING AT A YOUNG AGE OF 16. WHENHE WOULD JUGGLE HIGH SCHOOL AND WRESTLING AT THE SAME TIME. HIS FIRST MATCH, WAS ON A DARK NOVEMBER EVENING IN 1989, AGAINST ANOTHER LARGELY UNHERALDED LOCAL OPPONENT STEVE RAMSEY. FOR A WHILE, SCOTT WENT OUT AND GOT SOME REAL JOBS WHICH INCLUDED A BANK TELLER, AND AT KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN, WHERE HE FIRST MET HIS WIFE. IN 1991 HE WAS ACCEPTED FOR A PART TIME CONTRACT WITH WWF. IN 1997, HE WAS TEAMED UP WITH BRIAN CHRISTOPHER, WHO HE HAD PREVIOSLY FEUDED WITH, AND THEY BECAME TOO MUCH. SCOTT BECAME SCOTT 'TOO HOT' TAYLOR. TOO MUCH WERE MEANT TO BE GAY, JUST KIND OF LIKE THE AMBIGUOUSLY GAY DUO, WITH THEIR OBNOXIOUS IN RING BEHAVIOUR. THE CREATIVE TEAM, DECIDED TO WRITE INTO THE STORYLINE THAT THEY WOULD HAVE A GAY WEDDING ON ST VALENTINES DAY MASSACRE. FORTUNATELY THIS IDEA WAS SCRAPPED (THANK GOD). IN EARLY 1999,THEY MADE A TRANSFORMATION INTO TOO COOL. THEY WERE SET TO BE HEELS. THEY WORE THE URBAN GEAR, AND SCOTT HAD THE FAKE DREADLOCKS. THE NEXT DAY THOUGH BRIAN WENT DOWN WITH BAD CIRMCUMSTANCES WITH HIS KNEE, AND TOO COOL WERE TEMOPRARILY PUT ON A HALT. SCOTT WAITED AT HOME FOR MONTHS AS BRIAN RECOVERED. FINALLY BRIAN MADE HIS RETURN AND SO DID TOO COOL. ALTHOUGH THIS TIME VINCE MCMAHON CAME UP WITH A BETTER IDEA OF TOO COOL, THE TOO COOL YOU SEE TODAY. THEIR POPULARITY BOOSTED, AND IN JUST A FEW MONTHS, THEY BECAME ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR TAG TEAM'S EVER. TEAMED UP WITH RIKISHI, THEY WERE THE COOLEST, HIPPEST AND MOST ENTERTAINING TEAM. DURING THIS TIME, BRIAN KNEE'S WENT BAD AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME IT GAVE SCOTT TIME TO WORK ON HIS OWN, SHOWING THE FANS AND OTHER WRESTLERS HIS EXACTLY WHAT HE COULD DO. HE CERTAINLY DID WHEN HE PICKED UP THE LIGHTHEAVY WEIGHT BELT AND STOLE THE EVENT AT THE 2000 BACKLASH PPV.
