Professional wrestling career

Combat Zone Wrestling (2012-2019)

Strickland debuted in Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) on February 4, 2012. On March 8, 2014 Strickland won his first championship in CZW at CZW High Stakes 5 where he defeated Devon Moore to win the CZW Wired Championship. Strickland would go on to feud with Joe Gacy over the CZW Wired Championship which saw them win and lose the championship back and forth from each other until Gacy defeated Strickland one last time for the championship at CZW Cage Of Death XVI. Strickland would go one to achieve his greatest success in CZW by winning the CZW World Heavyweight Championship when he defeated Gacy, Lio Rush and Davey Richards in a four-way match. He held the championship for over four months before losing it to Gacy.

Evolve (2012-2019)

In 2012 Strickland debuted in Evolve. Strickland wrestled on and off in Evolve until achieving his biggest success on August 4, 2018 when he defeated Matt Riddle to win Evolve Championship at EVOLVE 108. Strickland successfully defended the Evolve Championship at EVOLVE 111 against DJ Z and at EVOLVE 113 against Tracy Williams before losing it to Fabian Aichner at EVOLVE 114.

Lucha Underground (2015-2018)

In 2015 Strickland debuted in Lucha Underground under a mask as Killshot. The character of Killshot was he was a military veteran who wore camouflage and dog tags. He formed a team with Big Ryck and The Mack but the team saw little success. Kilshot received a letter from a former friend named Dante Fox who came to Lucha Underground to challenge Killshot. Killshot would feud with Fox and ultimately defeat him at Ultima Lucha 3. The Mack brokered peace between the two rivals and led them to win the Lucha Underground Trios Championship. However, Fox faded away from the team leaving Killshot and The Mack without a partner to defend the Lucha Underground Trios Championship. This led to Son of Havoc joining the team and successfully defending the trios championships. Tensions within the team began to build as Killshot believed The Mack favored Son of Havoc over him. This led to the team losing the trios championships to The Reptile Tribe (Kobra Moon, Daga and Jeremiah Snake). Frustrated over the loss Killshot began a feud with Son of Havoc, splitting up the team in the process. This led to a mask vs. mask match at Ultima Lucha Cuatro Part 1 which Son of Havoc won. As a result, Killshot unmasked and left Lucha Underground forever.

Major League Wrestling (2017-2019)

When Major League Wrestling (MLW) returned in late 2017 Strickland joined their roster. In January 2018 MLW announced there would be an eight-man tournament to crown a new MLW World Heavyweight champion. Strickland won the tournament and the championship, going on to hold it for over three months before losing it to Low Ki.
