Too Cool is a World Wrestling Federation tag team that - is as advertised- too cool. Scotty Too Hotty (Scott Taylor) Grandmaster Sexay (Brian Christopher) not only combined to be wrestling most dominant duo on the scene today, they have also danced their way into the hearts of the WWF fans.
Taylor has been with the WWF since the early 90s but was never a major role player until he met his tag partner in 1997. Taylor would job in lesser matches in the federation, never really entering the spot light. But in 1997 the organisation decided to hold a tournament to crown its first ever light-heavy weight champion, Taylor threw his hat in the mix.
In the second of the tourney, he met up with Brian Christopher. Even though Christopher came away with the victory on this night, the two would meet over the next few months in a heated rivalry.
Before Christopher met up with Taylor in the light heavy event, he had been a star in the United States wrestling association in Memphis for years. In 1997, the WWF officials took notice of his talents when he participated in several inter-promotional matches.
But the tag magic didnt surface until 1998, at Wrestlemania XIV. The two grapplers would pair together in a tag team battle royal and the chemistry was instant. The only thing that has changed over the years is their team name. After their Wrestlemania performance, they dubbed themselves too much. They would wrestle occasionally over the next 18 months, leaving an impressive trail of victories along the way. But with so much up and coming talent in the tag ranks, the tandem decided to tweak their image. Scott too hot Taylor became Scotty Too Hotty and Brian Too Sexy Christopher became Grandmaster Sexay, and if you thought that was too much, Too Much became Too Cool.
Their image change would pay off as they not only became fan favourites, they would also win their first tag teams titles on May 29th 2000, in Vancouver against Edge and Christian.
Along with their rotund friend Rikishi, Too Cool had moved and grooved their way to super stardom. When the lights go down, the fans know that the tandem is about to bust some heads or bust some moves. But win, lose, or draw, Too Cool will definitely hear the cheers from the crowd. They are, plain and simple just Too Cool for words.
