Career

Early career and NWA Anarchy (2005–2007)

While attending Furman University, Creed began training for a career in professional wrestling and, in 2005, began wrestling part time with Rob Adonis's Ultimate Christian Wrestling promotion. While in the Greenville, South Carolina-based World Wrestling Council, run by former NWA professional wrestler Brodie Ray Chase, he developed his current ring persona based heavily on the character Apollo Creed from the Rocky series.[3]

During his time in NWA Anarchy, Creed was part of a tag team called Awesome Attraction with Hayden Young. The pair had one of the longest title reigns in the promotion's history after defeating Justice Served (Jason Justice and Mike Free) in Cornelia, Georgia on April 7, 2007.[4] In 2006, Creed won NWA's Most Popular Wrestler, voted for by the NWA fans.

Deep South Wrestling (2007)

On July 12, 2007 Creed defeated Murder-One to become the first DSW Heavyweight Champion since the split from WWE. He also worked with The Assassin while in Deep South Wrestling.[3]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2007–present)

Debut and pursuit of the X Division Championship (2007–2008)

Creed appeared at Total Nonstop Action Wrestling's Bound For Glory pay-per-view event, teaming with Ron Killings as the replacement for Adam "Pacman" Jones. Creed wrestled under the name Rasheed Lucius "Consequences" Creed.[5] His union with Ron Killings was made to be a play on words, with Killings' nickname "The Truth" being combined with Creed's nickname "Consequences" to form Truth and Consequences, which is similar to the name of a town, (Truth or Consequences, New Mexico named for an old game show).

Creed in action in September 2008

On October 21, 2007, it was reported that Creed had signed a contract with TNA.[3] The signing was reported when Creed appeared on the radio show Trash Talking Radio on October 23 with Tommy Cairo and Sabian.[6] His signing was also confirmed later at a NWA Anarchy show where Creed was presented the contract by TNA Booking Director Bill Behrens.[7] Following Bound For Glory, Creed was not seen on TNA television for months after Killings asked and was later granted his release from the company.

On February 10, 2008, Creed wrestled in a dark match before Against All Odds. He teamed with Sonjay Dutt defeating The Rock 'n Rave Infection. On the March 13 edition of Impact! a promo video with the words "prepare to face the consequences" showed Creed training and announced that he would make his return at the Lockdown pay-per-view on April 13. The following week the return date was changed to April 10. On the April 10 edition of Impact!, Creed made his in-ring return and defeated Jimmy Rave of The Rock 'n Rave Infection, thus qualifying for the Xscape match at Lockdown.[8] During the match, Creed eliminated Shark Boy, but was later eliminated by Curry Man.[9] Creed would later wrestle in the first ever TerrorDome match at Sacrifice, which was won by Kaz.[10]

At Hard Justice, Creed faced Petey Williams for the TNA X Division Championship, but lost after interference from Sheik Abdul Bashir. On the September 4, 2008 edition of TNA Impact!, he won a number one contenders match against Bashir for the right to face Williams again at No Surrender for the X Division title.[11] The match was changed to a triple threat after Bashir repeatably attacked Creed. Bashir won the match and the X Division title.[12]

The TNA Frontline (2008–2009)

On the October 30, 2008, episode of Impact!, Creed, along with Samoa Joe, A.J. Styles, Jay Lethal, Petey Williams, Eric Young, ODB and The Motor City Machineguns formed a faction of younger wrestlers, known as The Frontline, to oppose The Main Event Mafia.[13]

Lethal Consequences (2009–present)

On January 8, 2009, he teamed with Lethal to win the TNA World Tag Team Championship from the champions Beer Money, Inc. (Robert Roode and James Storm) after cashing in Lethal's Feast or Fired briefcase. Creed and Lethal have since become known as Lethal Consequences, a combination of their respective names.[14] Beer Money, Inc. regained their titles in a three-way match just three days later at Genesis. For the next few months, Creed and Lethal teamed with the Motor City Machineguns to try and unmask Suicide. On the October 1, 2009 episode of Impact!, Creed and Lethal were part of a 5-man ladder match for a future X Division title match. During the match, Amazing Red, who ended up winning the match, performed a move, and it ended in Creed vomiting all over the ring.[15]
