Professional Wrestling Career
Before joining WWE, Rosser trained and worked on the independent circuit for two years. Rosser worked several matches on RAW and SmackDown and worked for developmental territories before NXT. In 2010, Rosser went by Darren Young and participated in the first season of NXT.
In July, the members of the first season of NXT teamed up and formed The Nexus. After weeks of attacking several WWE Superstars, Team WWE faced Team Nexus at SummerSlam and won. However, the team continued and removed Darren Young from the group after his loss to John Cena. Young spent some time on RAW before moving back to NXT.
Young spent the next two years working at NXT and working on the main roster. In 2012, he began teaming up with Titus O'Neil and formed Prime Time Players. Over the next year, the team turned face and faced The Shield. The team was unsuccessful in winning the WWE Tag Team Championship. In 2014, O'Neil turned heel and disbanded the team.
After the split, Young spent time as a singles competitor and took some time off due to an injury. In 2015, Prime Time Players reunited and won the WWE Tag Team Championship. At SummerSlam, they lost the titles to The New Day. In 2016, they paired Young up with Bob Backlund and received a single's push. However, Young ended up feuding with Titus O'Neil before leaving the company.
