Fathi grew up in every form of poverty known to America from trailer parks to ghettos to projects, living in crack houses and more. As he got older he decided he wanted to get into wrestling and after training under the Dark Riders Gang (Scott Stonewall, Ariel James, Andre Bates and Alexander James) Fathi was recruited into ETWA under the UHW Inc banner and his wrestling career began. It was a hit and miss mostly especially with some personal things going on. For many years he rocked the Neo Confederate ideology. But, then in 2012 he disappeared for nearly two years. When he returned he was Muslim. After returning in 2014 his wrestling career was still hit and miss until he reached AUW where he became the face of the then 5150 division. Backstage issues arose over him condemning corporations and capitalism which caused several suspensions and releases. Finally he left AUW. From AUW he went to GFW. The term cur (meaning mutt) was used in reference to him and Fathi embraced it. While in GFW Fathi gained his first world title. Some backstage politics cost Fathi his contract with GFW and was released. Shortly afterwards he went to Neo Championship Wrestling where his career rocketed. He won the first ever champions run, a bracket style tournament. Running with Brian Kennedy they obtained the tag titles and created the group Thug Revolution. Eight months in NCW closed its doors for months. Several months later NCW reopened and Brian and Fathi reacquired the tag team titles. Shortly after that Fathi became the Pride of the People Champion. A couple months later Fathi won the Pinnacle Champion while still holding the Pride of the People championship as NCW closed its doors.
