Florida Championship Wrestling

He signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment and was assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). Kelly, at first using his real name, made his FCW debut on October 13, 2007, losing to Hade Vansen.[4] His next appearance was just over a week later on October 23, when he lost to "The Carnival Freak" Sinn Bowdee.[5] Kelly competed sporadically in FCW over the next few months, winning a six-man tag team match against Vansen, Sheamus O'Shaunessy and Bowdee with Rycklon Stephens and Chet Douglas as his partners, but losing a singles match to Afa Jr. a few weeks later.[6][7] He finished off 2007 with a win against Tommy Taylor on December 18.[8]

Kelly started off 2008 with a win, defeating Steve Lewington on FCW's first show of the year on January 8.[9] His next match against Afa Jr., however, was ruled a no contest after TJ Wilson interfered.[10] Kelly then began teaming with Rycklon, losing to the teams of Nick Nemeth and Big Rob, Jake Hager and Shawn Osborne, and Heath Miller and Steve Lewington.[11][12][13] Another match on April 15, when Kelly and Rycklon faced Johnny Curtis and Gabe Tuft ended in a double countout.[14]

On June 3, Kelly became a manager, cutting a promo for Black Pain.[15] Kelly managed Black Pain regularly, accompanying him for matches, and also teaming occasionally with him.[16][17] On September 30, Kelly debuted a new ring name, Byron Saxton.[18] With Black Pain, and the rest of his faction, known as the Saxton Conglomerate or simply the Conglomerate, composed of Stu Sanders (later Lawrence Knight) and Tyson Tarver, Saxton began a feud with Kafu, having the members of the Conglomerate face off against him in matches.[19][20][21] After this feud ended, the Conglomerate quickly began another one with Johnny Prime.[22][23][24] In the course of this feud Kaleb O'Neal began teaming with Prime in order to help him out, however, O'Neal later turned on Prime and joined the Conglomerate.[25][26] In January 2009, Black Pain broke away from the Conglomerate, and changed his ring name to Sweet Papi Sanchez, prompting a feud with the remaining Conglomerate members.[27][28][29] Since then, Saxton has associated himself with Abraham Saddam Washington. When Josh Mathews left FCW to commentate on ECW full-time, Saxton began working as a commentator alongside Dusty Rhodes.

ECW

In October 2009, the SmackDown color commentator, Jim Ross, suffered a Bell's palsy attack, resulting in a shuffle of the other commentators. Matt Striker was moved from ECW to SmackDown, and Saxton was called up to ECW as a commentator, working alongside Josh Matthews.[30] He debuted on the October 27 episode.[30] He continued his job for many more months.

In February of 2010, Vince McMahon had announced that ECW was to be canceled, and in its place, he debuted WWE NXT. Byron Saxton is now a free agent because of the end of ECW. He has since returned to FCW.
