In 2015 and 2016, the former WWE star won two amateur fights.

He expressed his dissatisfaction with himself in an Instagram message:

โ€œHere’s my favorite photo from last night. Very disappointed in myself and my performance. Happy the night ended with a win for @blackiechan_soda, who’s worked exceptionally hard for it. (Pictured here doing his best Steve Austin impression.) Thank you to everyone that’s reached out. Messages of support are always welcomed and appreciated. One win and one loss in 2022; life is all about balance. Bring on 2023! But first, coffee, cake, and @clara_sinclare.โ€

In 2016, he participated in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic. Following the tournament, he joined the company and worked on the 205 Live brand. He was let go by WWE in June 2020 following a sexual assault allegation.
