Christopher Keith Irvine, the son of a Canadian couple, was born on November 9, 1970 in Manhasset, New York. He is of Scottish ancestry. At the time of his birth, his father, ice hockey player Ted Irvine, was playing for the New York Rangers. Irvine’s family returned to Winnipeg, Manitoba, after his father retired. He is a dual citizen of the United States and Canada.

Irvine’s fascination with professional wrestling began when he began watching local American Wrestling Association (AWA) events at the Winnipeg Arena with his family. His desire to become a professional wrestler himself began when he saw footage of Owen Hart performing various high-flying moves.

His first professional wrestling promotion experience came when he worked as part of the ring crew for the first tour of the newly formed Keystone Wrestling Alliance, where he learned valuable tips from independent wrestlers Catfish Charlie and Caveman Broda. He attended Red River College in Winnipeg, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Creative Communications in 1990.
