Bourne's WWE career
After wrestling in several independent promotions for a while, coupled with a short stint in Impact Wrestling, Evan Bourne signed a contract with WWE in 2007. Initially, he debuted in WWE's developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling, and defeated TJ Wilson. He spent some time in WWE's version of ECW and was moved to Monday Night RAW in mid-2009. He was featured in a Gauntlet match against WWE Champion Randy Orton, in his RAW debut.
Bourne went on to team up with Kofi Kingston and the duo beat David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty to become the WWE Tag Team Champions. Bourne and Kingston were given the name "Air Boom". They later lost the titles to Epico and Primo at a house show. Bourne wrestled his final WWE match against Sami Zayn at an NXT live event, on March 28, 2013. He didn't appear on WWE TV after this bout and was released from the company in 2014.
