World Wrestling Entertainment

Deep South Wrestling

In 2006, Curtis was signed to a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment and was subsequently assigned to the Deep South Wrestling developmental territory. Curtis made his debut for the territory on November 9, where he lost to David Heath.[1] After losing consistantly over the next several weeks, Curtis scored his first victory in the territory as he and Robert Anthony defeated The Headliners (Shawn Shulz and Chris Thomas) on February 15, 2007.[1] Curtis continued to team with Anthony and after winning a few more matches, the team faced then-Tag Team Champions Team Elite (Mike Knox and Dereck Neikirk) in a match for the championship on March 15, but they were unable to win the title.[1] Curtis then became a singles competitor once again and after losing two matches, he won his final match in DSW against Frankie Coverdale on April 12.[1]

Florida Championship Wrestling

After WWE severed ties with DSW, Curtis and all the other talent in DSW were transferred over to the newly established Florida Championship Wrestling in June. On June 26, Curtis made his FCW debut as he defeated former tag team partner Robert Anthony.[1] After mixed success as a singles and tag team wrestler, Curtis defeated Chris Gray on December 18 to become the number one contender for the Southern Heavyweight Championship.[1] On January 8, 2008, he wrestled Ted DiBiase, Jr. for title, but lost the match.[1] On September 18, Curtis made an appearance at the SmackDown/ECW tapings, where he defeated Armando Estrada in a dark match.[1]

On December 11, 2008, Curtis teamed with Tyler Reks to defeat The New Hart Foundation (DH Smith and TJ Wilson) for the Florida Tag Team Championship, Curtis' first championship. The team of Curtis and Reks proved to be successful, as they managed to retain the title on several occasions.[1] After beginning a feuding with Caylen Croft and Trent Beretta, Curtis and Reks retained the title against them on a few different occasions before finally losing the title to Croft and Beretta on April 30, 2009 after Curtis didn't appear for the title defense, leaving Reks to wrestle alone.

After Reks was called up to WWE's main roster, Curtis renamed himself to Jonathan Curtis and became a villian. The two then faced off for Reks' Florida Heavyweight Championship on June 25, but Curtis was unable to win the title.[1] On July 2, Curtis wrestled in a triple threat match for the FCW Title also involving Alex Riley, but was again unsuccessful as Reks retained the title.[3] Soon afterwards, Curtis reverted his ring name to Johnny Curtis.[4]
