There was a time where people wanted to know the answer to the question, "Who the f*ck is Griff Garrison?"

This was the infamous line dropped by the late, great Mr. Brodie Lee (Jon Huber) on a past installment of the popular digital series, Being The Elite (BTE), before Garrison made a name for himself in All Elite Wrestling as one-half of the Varsity Blondes alongside Brian Pillman Jr.

During a recent interview with the folks at Lucha Libre Online, Garrison spoke about the origins of the popular bit from BTE's past. Featured below is an excerpt from the discussion where he shares the story.

"Originally, I was approached by Sammy Guevara to do a skit for his blog, with him confusing me with Jungle Boy and that whole skit where Marko punched Jungle Boy because he thought it was me. Then, I think John Silver was around the corner and kind of saw us doing that blog and he approached me [and said], 'Hey, me and Brodie have this idea. I am going to sit you on this chair and we going to, pretty much, pretend that you are Jungle Boy again and we will spin you on the chair and say, 'That’s not jungle Boy, that’s Griff Garrison.' And then John Silver said 'Who the f*ck is Griff Garrison?!', so I have John and Brodie to thank for that pick-up line that got me over. That’s kind of how the story went, Sammy asked me to be on his blog and John overheard and saw what was going on and asked if I wanted to be on BTE (Being The Elite), so I have them to thank for that."
