Professional wrestling career[edit]

Early years (2015–2021)[edit]

Lee Moriarty began training professional wrestling in February 2015 under Brandon K and Dean Radford in Pro Wrestling eXpress (PWX) near his home city of Pittsburgh.[2] He made his debut within the same year.[3]

All Elite Wrestling / Ring of Honor (2021–present)[edit]

In August 2021, Moriarty was booked to his first match in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) for a taped episode of AEW Dark.[4] He signed with the promotion two months later.[5] In the lead up to All Out 2022, Moriarty was recruited by Stokely Hathaway along with Ethan Page, Colten Gunn, Austin Gunn, and W. Morrissey. On the September 14 episode of AEW Dynamite, the name of his group was revealed to be "The Firm" and that they were MJF's "retainer team" helping him whenever he would need them.

In September 2023, Moriaty joined forces with Shane Taylor to reform Taylor's old stable "Shane Taylor Promotions".[6]
