World Wrestling Entertainment/WWE
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'. He made his in-ring debut in late 2009.
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). The two began feuding with Hawkins' former stablemates The Dude Busters (Caylen Croft and Trent Barreta), who Hawkins had abandoned to ally with Andrews. Andrews went on to defeat both Croft and Barreta in singles matches in March. 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. In November and December, Andrews appeared at several WWE house shows, losing to Goldust and defeating JTG. 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. The following week, Kidd introduced him as 'Jackson Andrews'. 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. After this, Slocum was sent back to FCW for more training and later released In May 2011. It has since been reported that WWE refuses to work with Slocum after it was revealed that he was abusing his fiancee at the time, WWE Diva Rosa Mendes.
Slocum was engaged to fellow wrestler Milena Roucka in 2012. On August 5, 2012, Roucka filed battery charges against Slocum with the San Antonio Police Department, over an earlier incident at their Las Vegas home. Roucka stated that she was afraid Slocum would kill her, and that abuse was an ongoing problem. Police photographed scratches and bruises on her body. It was then revealed that Slocum was also engaged to another woman, Amber Stoval, who he had been dating for 4 years prior.
