Professional wrestling career

What Culture Pro Wrestling (2016–2017)

On August 24, 2016, at WCPW Stacked, Conners defeated Big Damo, Joe Hendry (whom he had betrayed) and Rampage in a Fatal 4-way match to become WCPW World Champion. Conners would successfully defend the championship against El Ligero, Drew Galloway, Martin Kirby, Cody Rhodes and Joe Hendry, at various WCPW events, as well as against "Darkside" James Scott outside of WCPW territory. At Delete: WCPW on November 30, 2016, Conners lost the championship to Drew Galloway in a triple threat match, also featuring Joe Hendry.

At WCPW KirbyMania, Conners returned for the first time since signing his WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament contract, attacking Joe Hendry during his match with Drake, setting up a no holds barred match between the two, ultimately losing via pinfall in what is said to have been his last ever match in WCPW.
