Christopher Joseph Parks[10][11] (born October 4, 1973)[1] better known by the ring name Abyss, is an American professional wrestler currently signed with Impact Wrestling as a producer.

Under the ring name Abyss in Impact Wrestling (originally TNA Wrestling), Park became a one-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion, being the first of only two men to hold the title while competing under a mask (Blue Demon, Jr. is the other). Abyss is the heaviest wrestler to hold the X Division Championship and was the longest reigning Television Champion. In the tag team division, he held the NWA World Tag Team Championship once with A.J. Styles, and the TNA World Tag Team Championship twice, once with James Storm as The Revolution, and once with Crazzy Steve as Decay.

Having won all the required championships, Abyss was the fourth man to complete the Triple Crown Championship and the second to complete the Grand Slam Championship. Park also wrestles in Impact Wrestling as Abyss' storyline brother/split personality, Joseph Park. Having remained with the company since their debut show in 2002, Abyss is also the longest-tenured member of the Impact Wrestling roster. In 2018, Abyss was inducted into the Impact Hall of Fame by his longtime manager, James Mitchell.
