You may have wondered about his life before and life after the brutal fights in the arena, well, guess what? We’ve got all the details right here. Read on…

Tyrus (George Murdoch) – Bio

George Murdoch was born in Massachusetts, the United State on the 21st of February  1973. He is not an only child as he has a younger brother whose name is currently unknown.

While the details of George’s education is scarce, it is already known that in 1990, he attended Quartz Hill High School in Los Angeles County, California. Two years later, in 1992, he proceeded to Antelope Valley College and in 1995, he enrolled at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, where he studied to become a teacher.

During his college days, George was a talented football player and also played for his school team. However, his football career ended when he had surgery to remove a ruptured appendix. At the end of the surgery, it was discovered that a nerve ending was severed in his leg, this has given him a permanent limp which blew his football career into bits


When George was younger, he worked as a bodyguard for Snoop Dog. He soon became interested in professional wrestling and signed up with the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). He debuted in September 2006 under the ring name G-Rilla. By October he joined a team called Urban Assult and was the enforcer for the team. The Urban Assult became champions after winning The Major Brothers at the final match on DSW Tag Team Championship on November 30, 2006. G-Rilla was thrown out of the group on December 21 after he lost several matches.

Tyrus then formed a tag team with a former enemy Freakin’ Deacon. The pair defeated Urban Assault in their first match together in early January 2007 and in March, they faced and defeated Team Elite in two successive non-title matches winning the DSW Tag Team Championship in March 2007. The team dissolved later that month after Deacon suffered a mental breakdown after a match. George made his debut at FCW ‘s inaugural show on June 26 in the same year, still using the name G-Rilla.

In September, G-Rilla won a battle royal to become the number one contender to the FCW Southern Heavyweight Championship by eliminating Teddy Hart. On February 4, 2008, Murdoch was released from his contract with the WWE and in January 2010, he re-signed with WWE and was assigned to FCW and changed his ring name from G-Rilla to Brodus Clay. Clay formed a team with The Usos Brothers referring to themselves as the Colossal Connection.
