The son of Terry Gordy was signed to WWE developmental territory Deep South Wrestling in August 2005. He debuted with a rapper gimmick, going by the name of Ray Geezy. He primarily teamed with Damian Steele and Henry Godwinn. With the former he reformed The Godwinns and changed his name to Cousin Ray.

He was moved to the Smackdown roster in May 2007. Promos began to air for several weeks hyping up the debut of “Jesse and Festus”. They had a country gimmick, but Jesse also had to escort Festus around as he had a gimmick in which he was unresponsive until the ring bell rang.

After defeating a series of jobbers they got their big victory against the team of Elijah Burke and Nunzio on their ECW debut. Their first loss came in November in a 10-man tag team battle royal to become number one contenders for the titles to Deuce ‘n Domino.

They remained in the tag team title picture by facing the tag team champions The Miz and John Morrison, twice in quick succession, however they were on the losing side on both occasions.

In February, 2008, their push continued as they defeated Deuce ‘n Domino and The Miz and John Morrison, which led to them earning a tag team title match. However, they lost chance to win the gold on the March 21 edition of Smackdown.

When Smackdown moved networks Jesse and Festus briefly came to the ring wearing removal gear. Over the next two weeks they were attacked by Kenny Dykstra and Ryan Braddock on separate occasions and put them in cardboard boxes and sent them away.

As part of the 2009 Supplemental Draft, the team was broken up when Festus was drafted to Raw in April.

In June, he reprised his rapper gimmick he used in DSW, but this time he went by the name of Slam Master J. He introduced the gimmick on television for the first time when he interrupted Cryme Tyme’s ‘Word Up’. He debuted when he defeated Charlie Haas. Slam Master J then formed a short lived tag team with Jimmy Wang Yang, the only victory they ever got was against Charlie Haas and Mike Knox.

His last appearance came at Wrestlemania XXVI when he competed in a 26-man battle royal before the pay-per-view began, the match was won by Yoshi Tatsu.

He was released from his contract on April 22, 2010.
