Wrestling under both his real name and as Barry Allen for the promotion from 2008 until his release in 2009. During his time he would wrestle future WWE stars like Drew McIntyre, and Derrick Bateman, as well as wrestle other pedigreed wrestlers like Tank Mulligan, Brett DiBiase, and DH Smith.

Dakota would be released from his developmental contract with WWE in the middle of 2009. He continued to wrestle after his release, eventually signing with TNA but he failed to make a significant mark there. His last match was for the Legends of Wrestling promotion where he faced Deimos.
