Comoroto wrestled in the northeastern territory in promotions including Keystone Pro Wrestling, MCW Pro Wrestling, Pennsylvania Premiere Wrestling and Tier 1 Wrestling.
World Wrestling Entertainment / WWE (2019-2020)
During February 2019, Comoroto was announced as having signed with WWE. He reported to the WWE Performance Center as part of the February class of recruits, including wrestlers Karen Q, Rachael Ellering, Sam Shaw, Albert Hardie Jr., Trevor Lee, Jeffrey "Jeff" Parker, Matt Lee, Brendan Vink, Jermaine Haley and former football players Omari Palmer and Ricardo Miller.
The following month, Comoroto made his in-ring debut during a March 15 live event, losing to Australian recruit Brendan Vink. His second match was during a March 22 live event, losing to Babatunde Aiyegbusi. Four months later, he debuted his new ring name Nick Ogarelli during a July 19 live event, where he lost a match against Daniel Vidot. Between August and September, Ogarelli joined Rik Bugez as a tag team in matches during the live events. They wrestled against teams including The Outliers and team 3.0. Ogarelli spent the remainder of 2019 working matches in live events.
In 2020, Ogarelli wrestled his last match at a March 6 live event teaming with recent recruit Denzel Dejournette in a tag match won by Cezar Bononi & Tino Sabbatelli. As a result of WWE cutting its budget stemming from the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic, Ogarelli was one of many wrestlers released largely during the month of April. During his time in WWE, Ogarelli never appeared on television.
