Professional wrestling career
Independent circuit (2013–14)
Pang-Potjes was trained to be a professional wrestler by Afa Anoa'i at the Wild Samoan Pro Wrestling Training Center. He wrestled for World Xtreme Wrestling under the ring name Noah Kekoa, where he held the WXW Heavyweight Championship.
In May 2014, it was announced that Pang-Potjes had signed with WWE. He began working at NXT live events from April 2015 and made his first major appearance in September 2015 as part of the inaugural Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, teaming with Alexander Wolfe as a last minute replacement for Marcus Louis in a first-round defeat to The Hype Bros. Working under his real name, Potjes had his first televised singles match on the May 4, 2016 episode of NXT, losing to No Way Jose. Potjes made several further televised appearances, losing to Tye Dillinger and Andrade "Cien" Almas. In November 2016, Potjes adopted the new ring name Kona Reeves. On the November 23 episode of NXT, a match between Reeves and Rich Swann was interrupted by SAnitY, who attacked both men. Reeves then made several further televised appearances throughout the early part of 2017, losing to Aleister Black and Hideo Itami.
After a long absence from television, a vignette aired on the April 18, 2018 episode of NXT promoting Reeves' return as "The Finest" Kona Reeves. He would make his return two weeks later defeating Patrick Scott, establishing himself as a heel.
