After joining One Pro Wrestling in May 2006, PAC became the first ever Openweight Champion on November 26 after winning a battle royal. He would successfully retain the title on several occasions before losing it to James Wallace on June 30, 2007 in a match that started immediately after PAC retained the title in a four-way match. On December 29, PAC failed to reclaim the title after losing to then-champion Darren Burridge.
In late April, PAC represented International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom in the prestigious King of Europe Cup. He defeated Trent Acid in the first round before falling to Nigel McGuinness in the quarter finals.
In 2007, Satterly began wrestling in the Italy-based Nu-Wrestling Evolution under the ring name Jungle Pac.
