World Championship Wrestling

Along with several other wrestlers, including future tag team partner James Storm, Harris was signed to a World Championship Wrestling (WCW) developmental deal in October 2000. Terry Taylor proposed a country singer gimmick for him, but it was rejected by management (possibly because of similarities to the character of Jeff Jarrett). The highlight of Harris's WCW career was appearing as a fake version of the popular wrestler Sting at Halloween Havoc 2000 (this parody would be repeated in TNA in 2006). He wrestled on the WCW B-shows WorldWide and Saturday Night as part of R and B Security (the "Run and Bump" team) until the promotion was sold in early 2001.
