Chikara (2005-2015)

Papics was trained at the Chikara Wrestle Factory by Mike Quackenbush and Chris Hero and debuted for Chikara in 2005. While in Chikara he wrestled as the Retail Dragon; nicknamed the "Xtreme Customer Service Specialist" and whilst there he formed a tag team with Dragon Dragon, known as Triple Dragon.

In conjunction with apprearing in Chikara, Papics wrestled as "Lucky" in Pro Wrestling Unplugged and several other independent promotions, including CZW, where he tagged with JC Ryder as "the New Jersey All Stars." On 15 January he was released from Chikara with his request.

Combat Zone Wrestling (2007; 2010-Present)

In 2010 Papics made his return to Combat Zone Wrestling as "tHURTeen", a wild character under the tuteledge of Billy Gram in the heel stable Cult Fiction. With Cult Fiction, he began feuding with Danny Havoc, Necro Butcher and the Suicide Kings. His feud with Cult Fiction against the Suicide Kings culminated at Cage Of Death XII in the main event in front of a sold out crowd at the ECW Arena. Following the breakup of Cult Fiction, tHURTeen went out on his own, proclaiming himself to be a "one man wolfpac." He eventually ended up facing off with his Suicide Kings rival, Danny Havoc, in an unsuccessful bid to win the Ultraviolent Underground Championship. Following the match, Havoc proclaimed his respect for tHURTeen, and invited him to join the Suicide Kings, who were immediately renamed "The Nation of Intoxication." A few months later, Scotty Vortekz took his leave from pro wrestling, leaving Havoc, Devon Moore, and Lucky13 to represent as the Nation. At CZW's "A Tangled Web 5," Moore and Lucky13 won the CZW World Tag Team Titles for the first time. They lost the titles at Cerebral on October 13, 2012. On December 8, 2012, at Cage of Death, Nation of Intoxication, defeated 4Loco (Alex Colon, Azriel and Bandido Jr.) to win the titles again. The team lost the titles at CZW 14th Anniversary Show on February 9, 2013 to Dustin Ryaz and Eric Ryan.
