Montaque Nasir "Monty" Brown (born April 13, 1970) is an Americanmarker professional wrestler and former National Football League linebacker. He is best known for his time with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment, where he wrestled on its ECW brand under the ring name Marcus Cor Von. In both companies, he utilized the nickname "The Alpha Male." Brown has also wrestled for a number of independent promotions, including Blood, Sweat and Ears, Juggalo Championship Wrestling and the Universal Wrestling Alliance.

Career

National Football League

Brown attended Ferris State Universitymarker in Big Rapids, Michiganmarker, where he was an All-American American football linebacker, breaking and setting several defensive records. Talent spotters recruited him to the Buffalo Bills, and he played football professionally for four years, competing in Super Bowl XXVIII for the Bills in 1994. Brown also started as an inside linebacker for the New England Patriots in 1996.

Professional wrestling

Brown was trained to be a professional wrestler by Dan "The Beast" Severn and Sabu, and made his in ring debut on May 6, 2001.

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2002, 2004–2006)

In 2002, Brown made several appearances with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling but did not become a permanent part of the company, with his last appearance coming on August 28. He returned to the company on March 10, 2004, attacking the Insane Clown Posse during a match in the process. He now had a gimmick of being from the Serengetimarker, dressed variously in leopard and tiger-print trunks, and possessed the mannerisms of an African predator animal. Brown received a shot at Jeff Jarrett's NWA World Heavyweight Championship on January 16, 2005 at the Final Resolution pay-per-view, but was defeated. Two months later, Brown turned heel during the main event of March's Destination X event by attacking Diamond Dallas Page and helping Jarrett retain to his title.

Brown soon joined the Planet Jarrett stable and spent several months feuding with Jarrett's enemies: Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman, Diamond Dallas Page, and A.J. Styles. Late in the year, he began teaming with fellow Planet Jarrett member Kip James, helping him battle the 3Live Kru in an attempt to convince Kru member B.G. James to reform his former tag team, the New Age Outlaws, with Kip. Brown and James faced Kru members Ron Killings and Konnan at Sacrifice in August in a match with B.G. as special guest referee, with both Kip and the remainder of the Kru urging him to take their respective side. B.G. eventually took the side of Konnan and Killings, costing Brown and James the match. Following the defeat, Brown insisted that he be the one to lead the team. On August 26 he turned his back on Jarrett, claiming that their agreement was broken.

At Unbreakable on September 11, Brown declared his intention to challenge for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship at Bound For Glory. After defeating Lance Hoyt at Bound For Glory, Brown took part in a ten-man Gauntlet for the Gold match for number one contendership to the Championship, but was eliminated from the match by Jeff Hardy, whom he took with him over the top rope. Brown did win number one contendership at November's Genesis with a singles victory over Jeff Hardy. After an altercation with the newly debuted Christian Cage, Brown agreed to put his title shot on the line in a match against Cage at Turning Point in December, where he lost it to him. On the December 17 episode of Impact!, Brown renewed his alliance with Jarrett, with both men (kayfabe) bitter towards "TNA management".

On the January 7, 2006 episode of Impact!, Jarrett and Brown enacted a skit mocking Sting, who had recently signed with TNA and was set to team with Christian Cage against Brown and Jarrett at Final Resolution. The Alpha Male posed as the Sting of 2006, complete with make-up and baby stroller. Sting and Cage defeated Brown and Jarrett at Final Resolution when Sting pinned Jarrett after a Scorpion Death Drop. After Christian Cage won the World Heavyweight Title, Brown received a shot at Destination X, but did not win the title. Following Destination X, Brown underwent surgery on his knee, which had previously "blown out". He returned to in-ring competition on April 29, 2006 in a match in Germanymarker and TNA television on the May 18 episode of Impact! — where he (kayfabe) demanded to be included in the King of the Mountain match for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary in June. After he failed to qualify for the King of the Mountain match, he engaged in a short feud with Rhino and Samoa Joe before his TNA contract expired and left the company.

World Wrestling Entertainment (2006–2007)

On November 16, 2006, World Wrestling Entertainment announced that Brown had signed a contract with the company through their official website, WWE.com. They referred to him as a former linebacker for the Buffalo Bills, without mentioning his time spent in TNA. He debuted for their ECW brand under the ring name "The Alpha Male" Marquis Cor Von on January 16, 2007, in a win over fellow TNA alumnus Cassidy Riley. Reportedly the name change was motivated by World Wrestling Entertainment's desire to have him appear under a name they could trademark. One week later, the spelling of the first name was tweaked to Marcus. Not long after his debut, he was made a part of the forming New Breed stable, and with them feuded with the ECW Originals. After the feud died down, Cor Von took several months off for unspecified "family issues", then was released from his WWE contract on September 19, 2007 without making a return to television.
