Early career

Bradley started his wrestling training at the Steel Domain Wrestling school in Chicago, where he trained alongside such wrestlers as CM Punk and Colt Cabana. Bradley suffered several setbacks in his career as he suffered from an overactive thyroid, which would cause him to fall asleep during matches.cite video|people=CM Punk; Colt Cabana|title= [ Straight Shootin' with CM Punk & Colt Cabana] |medium=DVD|publisher=Ring of Honor|date=2005-07-01] He worked for several independent promotions in the Mid-West, most notably for IWA Mid-South, before signing a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment.
