A native of Selkirk, Manitoba, Cutler was a fan of Hulk Hogan and Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat during the "Rock 'n' Wrestling Connection"-era of the 1980s as well as Stone Cold Steve Austin, Owen and Bret Hart during the "Attitude Era". Still in his early 20s, he approached local Selkirk promoter and wrestler Matt Evans who agreed to train him and later booked him on shows in Winnipeg. He later received more advanced training from Johnny Devine, including conducting interviews and putting together promotional packages.


He made his professional debut on May 30, 2002, and wrestled in Manitoba and Saskatchewan during his early career. He also appeared in British Columbia and Ontario and toured the United States.

On September 11, 2004, Cutler appeared on the first event held by Power Slam Entertainment, PSE Genesis, at the Selkirk War Memorial Hall including "The Mecca" Shane Madison, Shaun Houston, "The Outlaw" Adam Knight, Matt Fairlane and Chris Raine. The event also raised money for local charities including the Selkirk Food Bank and the Ruth Hooker breakfast program. Winning the PSE Heavyweight Championship at that show, he defended his title at the promotion's second show, PSE Revolution, against Chris Raine the following month.

In October 2005, he also appeared on the supercard Halloween Horror for Action Wrestling Entertainment, facing Adam Knight in the main event. During that year, he appeared on the promotion's television show AWE Overload, later released on DVD as AWE: Larger Than Life, Volume 2.

In 2007, Cutler began sending photos and a DVD of his matches and interviews. After sending an e-mail to WWE Talent Relations, he was offered to appear at a WWE event while touring Canada. When the tour was cancelled due to the Chris Benoit murder-suicide, WWE Talent Relations informed him that he could appear when the promotion made another tour the following year.

On March 2, 2007, at the Glenwood CC in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; "Prime Time" Jon Cutler pinned EZ Ryder in the main event for Reckoning Day to become the new RME Heavyweight Champion. He last defended the title on July 4, 2007 at RME's Maple Leaf Mayhem Tour at the Dryden Recreation Complex in Dryden, Ontario, Canada where he pinned Vance Nevada to remain the RME Heavyweight Champion. In October 2007, Cutler vacated the title.
