Cyrus went on to defeat Nicolas, Samson, and Robbie Gilmore throughout late 2007 and early 2008.[3]

In September 2009, it was reported that Slocum had signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), and had been assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), a WWE developmental territory under the ring name 'Jackson Andrews'.[4] He made his in-ring debut in late 2009.[5]

In early 2010, Andrews formed an alliance and tag team with Curt Hawkins, with the pair debuting as a tag team on February 18 by defeating The South Beach Boys (Darren Young and Percy Watson).[6] The two began feuding with Hawkins' former stablemates The Dude Busters (Caylen Croft and Trent Barreta), who Hawkins had abandoned to ally with Andrews.[6] Andrews went on to defeat both Croft and Barreta in singles matches in March.[6] Over the next few months, Andrews and Hawkins went on to face The Rotundo Brothers (Bo and Duke), and the team of Eli Cottonwood and Wes Brisco.[6] In November and December, Andrews appeared at several WWE house shows, losing to Goldust and defeating JTG.[7][8] On the December 6, 2010, episode of Raw, Slocum appeared as the unidentified bodyguard for Tyson Kidd, accompanying Kidd to the ring and attacking Kidd's opponent, David Hart Smith.[9][10] The following week, Kidd introduced him as 'Jackson Andrews'.[11] On the December 27 episode of Raw, Andrews had an in-ring confrontation with Mark Henry after Henry had defeated Kidd, but Henry performed his finishing move on Andrews.[12] After this, Slocum was sent back to FCW for more training and later released In May 2011.[13]
