Scotty 2 Hotty reveals the origin of Too Cool.
WrestleMania 14 marked the first time Scotty 2 Hotty and Brian Christopher united to form the tag team of Too Cool. Called initially Too Much, it took over a year for the team to find their footing in the tag team division, but once they blew up, they were one of the hottest acts during the hottest period in wrestling history.
Appearing on Edge & Christian's Pod of Awesomeness, Scotty 2 Hotty revealed how Too Cool came to be.
"I floundered for a year. On Wednesday [before WrestleMania 14], they told me I was needed for the battle royal. I go from sitting at home to being thrown in this battle royal with Brian Christopher as my partner. I had been a face all along, and Brian was the top heel in the lightweight division. And they just throw us together. It made no sense," recalled Scotty. "I go get a cup of coffee at catering and, in the room, Vince McMahon walks up to get coffee as well. I said, 'Thanks for putting me on the show, I don't know if you know me...' I said, 'I used to wrestle at Scott 2 Hot' and Brian Christopher was Too Sexy. Next week on TV, we walked in, we were Too Hot, Too Sexy, and we were Too Much."
On-screen, Scotty and Brian were the life of the party. But off-screen, they were two different people.
"People always assume that if you're tag team partner, you're best friends. But we never rode together, anywhere. Even when Too Cool started, we were just two different people. There were nights when we would barely speak to each other; then we go through the curtain and magic."
Too Cool split in 2001 following a vertebrae injury to Scotty and Brian's subsequent release from the company. They would reunite in NXT in February 2014.
