Professional wrestling career

WWE (2013–present)

On October 23, 2012, Johnston wrestled a dark match for WWE, in which he was defeated by Fandango. In April 2013, it was reported that Johnston was undergoing medical tests for the promotion, and on May 27 Dragon Gate USA confirmed that Johnston had signed with WWE. Johnston's new WWE ring name was revealed as Solomon Crowe, and on August 29 he debuted for WWE's developmental territory, NXT Wrestling, at a live event with a loss to Xavier Woods. On December 6, Crowe debuted an "evil hacker" gimmick, where he used a tablet computer to seize control of the lights in the arena, and attacked Kalisto. The following year, in August 2014, Johnston suffered a chipped tibia during a tag team match with Kalisto against The Ascension; the injury did not require surgery and he returned in November.

From the January 28, 2015 episode of NXT, WWE began airing teasers for Crowe's television debut. On the February 18 episode of NXT, Crowe made his anticipated television debut, attacking CJ Parker. In his first televised match on the March 4 episode of NXT, he defeated Bull Dempsey.

On November 24, it was announced that Johnston had requested and received his release from his WWE contract the day prior.
