Professional wrestling career
Early career (2014-2018)
Jake grew up a wrestling fan and was largely inspired by Hulk Hogan to pursue a career. Upon graduating high school, Jake moved to Pennsylvania, where he started training at the Ring of Honor dojo. He completed training in April 2009. Jake described his first match as a tag match for a Michigan-based promotion called IDW, operated by Rude Boy. As Jake Something, his main debut was made on November 8, 2014 in Wrestling And Respect's November We Remember event, teaming with Danny Shay in a tag match lost against Austin Manix & Orlando Christopher. While in WAR, he became a one-time WAR Champion. He went on to wrestle in promotions including Xtreme Intense Championship Wrestling, where he became a two-time XICW Xtreme Intense Champion. He also wrestled in Superkick'D, becoming a two-time Superkick'D Champion and a two-time Superkick'D King Of The 6IX Champion. Jake also wrestled in Glory Pro where he became a one-time Crown Of Glory Champion.
Impact Wrestling (2018-present)
Jake debuted in 2018 at Impact One Night Only: March Breakdown, where he and teammate Phil Atlas won Border City Wrestling's BCW Can-Am Tag Team Championship from Aiden Prince & Brent Banks in a tag team title match. Jake returned for Impact Wrestling Last Chancery, where he and Cody Deaner lost a tag match to The Desi Hit Squad (Gursinder Singh & Rohit Raju). Later that year, Jake returned to television during the October 13 episode of Xplosion, rebranded as Jake Deaner, one-half of the newly-formed team The Deaners, with Cody Deaner. The team however, lost their debut match against The Cult Of Lee (Caleb Konley & Trevor Lee). The Deaners returned the following week on the October 20 episode of Xplosion, losing to The OGz (Hernandez & Homicide).
