Stephens was signed by the WWE in March of 2007 and was assigned to their developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling where he competed as Rycklon. He remained in FCW until July of 2008 when he was called up to the Smackdown brand and paired with wrestler The Brian Kendrick. In April of 2009 he became apart of the ECW brand and was given a main event push defeating Christian on the final episode of ECW On Syfy to become the final ECW Champion.
