Professional wrestling career

He would debut for the Alternative Wrestling Show early the following year. He would go on to win the Alternative Wrestling Show's Light-Heavyweight Title from TJ Perkins on April 26, 2009 in Rowland Heights, California. Awarded the new AWS Lightweight Championship at the next show, he would go on to defend the championship amongst wrestlers in the Southern California area like Charles Mercury, Chris Kadillak, and Malachi Jackson. He would begin a feud with Human Tornado over the AWS championship which would culminate in a Falls Count Anywhere match on October 23, 2009 where he was the winner.
Avalon would continue to compete throughout Southern California in 2010 for companies like EWF, AWS, SoCal Pro Wrestling, Mach 1 Pro Wrestling, and New Wave Pro Wrestling. He would debut and compete in Portland, Oregon and surrounding areas for the West Coast Wrestling Company. Avalon would go on to make his Pro Wrestling Guerrilla debut at "Seven" on July 30, 2010 in a 6-man tag match.
Championship Wrestling from Hollywood (2010–present)
Avalon made his Championship Wrestling from Hollywood debut on August 25, 2010 in a losing effort to Colt Cabana. Peter would join up with Adam Pearce, Joey Kaos, and Austin Aries to form "The Standard". The four of them would go on to feud with the likes of Scorpio Sky, Joey Ryan, Nick Madrid, and Willie Mack throughout 2010 and early 2011.
In 2011, The Standard would eventually break-up and Peter would find himself aligned with Ray Rosas and Rico Dynamite. The trio would enter a feud with Ryan Taylor, Famous B, Aaron Bolo, and later, Jarek Matthews. The feud would culminate in a Six Man Tag Team Hair Vs. Hair Elimination Match on July 10, 2011 which saw Peter get his hair cut by Ryan Taylor. Avalon would eventually enter into a feud with Ryan Taylor. Peter, accompanied by Ray Rosas, would torment Taylor month after month, competing in several competitive and violent matches. The feud would culminate in a Steel Cage match on February 12, 2012 in Glendale, California with Peter on the losing end.
On July 21, 2013, Avalon and his partner Ray Rosas, now collectively known as "PPRay," defeated Los Bandidos (Rico Dynamite & Tito Escondido), The RockNES Monsters (Johnny Goodtime & Johnny Yuma) and The Tribe (Hawaiian Lion & Navajo Warrior) in an Elimination tag team match to win the CWFH Heritage Tag Team Championships.
Avalon would go on to relinquish the tag team championships after Rosas sustained an injury, but was interrupted by the RockNES Monsters. Instead of giving the titles up, Peter chose to defend the titles in a 2 on 1 handicap match against RockNES. Peter would ultimately lose the match and the Heritage Tag Team Titles to the RockNES Monsters on April 13, 2014. On October 12, 2014 for CWFHollywood, PPRay defeated The RockNES Monsters to win the CWFH Heritage Tag Team Championship. They lost the titles against the former champions 12 days later at a Baja Stars event in Tijuana, Mexico.
