He trained and wrestled at local wrestling schools until being picked up by the WWF/WWE in 2001 where he was sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), working in many singles and tag team matches.

Feud with John Cena, end to reign Edit
John Cena showed up on RAW, announcing that he was drafted from SmackDown! to RAW. John Cena cited that he and CJSellers had unfinished business to tend to. CJSellers demanded behind the scenes that he be not put into a feud with John Cena, considering that John Cena was the reason CJSellers left the WWE back in 2007. CJSellers and John Cena would face off in different "pick your poison" matches, which meant that CJSellers could pick Cena's opponent, and Cena could pick CJSellers' opponent.

CJSellers suffered an injury during a House Show match against John Cena. CJSellers ended up tearing his shoulder into 3 different places, which caused CJSellers to miss 6 months.
CJSellers returned 6 months later and demanded a match against John Cena for the WFF Championship. CJSellers lost the match via DQ when the referee couldn't get CJSellers to break the 5 count while he was continuing to attack John Cena in the corner. This basically ended the feud between John Cena and CJSellers.
The next week on RAW, CJSellers said that he was done with John Cena. He began to "squash" serveral wrestlers within the next few weeks. CJSellers the ended his relationship with "on-screen/storyline" girlfriend, Melina. CJSellers began to show signs of a heel turn a week after this when he began to act differently. He began to become more aggressive, dangerous, and even debuted a new look on RAW, shaving his head, growing out a beard, and began wearing a new attire. He even walked down to the ring slowly when he would make his entrance. A remixed version of his current "Voices" theme also debuted.
CJSellers eventually turned heel during the WFF One Year Anniversary special when Shannon Silveria returned, and the two ended up forming a new team, called: Straight Edge Society.

A few weeks later after this, the Wrestling Franchise Federation ended up closing down.

CJSellers turned heel again when his former rival back in 2001, Larry Heightson returned, formed a stable with CJSellers and Shannon Silveria. They named themselves: Nation of Domination. CJSellers won the Intercontinental Championship, while Shannon Silveria became the new World Heavyweight Champion.
The group didn't last long, seeing as the WFF closed down a few weeks later.
SummerSlam return, closure Edit
Once again, the WFF made their return during one of their most successful PPV events: SummerSlam. The card featured a Ladder match main event between the three former WFF Nation of Domination members: CJSellers, Shannon Silveria, and Larry Heightson. Shannon Silveria became the new World Heavyweight Champion that night, but soon after the PPV event, the WFF ended again.
Three Year Aniversary, end (2011) Edit
When October 13, 2011 came around, CJSellers didn't know about hosting a return show for the defunct Wrestling Franchise Federation. CJSellers ended up choosing to return for one night only, which the WFF did. They returned on October 13, 2011. CJSellers announced that the matches that would take place on the night, all championships would be on the line, and also that the winners of the matches would be the final WFF champions in history.
Soon after, the WFF ended, and CJSellers ended his relationship with former girlfriend (kayfabe) Mickie James. After this, CJSellers suddenly went through a dark period in his life. He lost all contact with any of the WFF Superstars.
Sudden end (2012) Edit
Nearly a year and a half of being away, CJSellers turned the company around and returned on his new channel, REALCJSellers2x. The premiere of the fourth season saw a 3 1/2 star rating, which also revealed was a success for the return of the brand. CJSellers also reignited his feud with former WFF Champion Shannon Silveria. Their long lasting feud topped off as one of the greatest rivalries in the WFF. However after their month return, CJSellers announced another hiatus on October 13, 2012 (which was also announced to see the Four Year Anniversary event, which eventually saw CJSellers cancel.)
Semi-Return (2012) Edit
The WFF made their official semi-return on October 28, 2012 hosting Royal Rumble 2012. The event saw Brandon make his return and win the Rumble match, CJSellers also became the new WFF Champion after defeating former champion Shannon Silveria. Few nights later on Halloween, the WFF hosted a special Halloween HaVoc show and the next night for one-night-only, Monday Night RAW was hosted on a Thursday, however this was just a one-time thing.
Brandon was however, released from his contract shortly after the announced hiatus due to an interview he had done a few days prior to him making a return, bashing the company, CJSellers and among other things.
This return would also be its last, until May 2013.
Return, WFF Champion Edit
The WFF officially made their return on May 13, 2013. CJSellers was ushered in the new season as the WFF Champion, and also, the Brand Extension was disbanded, once again.
Ring of Honor (2012) Edit
CJSellers made an appearance at a Ring of Honor event. He was billed as the "Guest for the Night". He was involved in a confrontation with former TNA Superstar Jay Lethal. Lethal said that CJSellers was nothing more but a failure in the wrestling business. This led to a one-on-one match between the two, which CJSellers went to defeat Lethal. The following week, Ring of Honor announced they had signed CJSellers to an "exclusive" 3 Year Agreement. CJSellers then went on 2 weeks later to become the #1 Contender for the ROH Championship after winning a Championship Contender Battle Royal.
CJSellers faced off against ROH Champion Kevin Steen at the "Death Before Dishonor" PPV, which CJSellers ended up losing due to a surprise appearance by John Cena. While the referee was unconscious, Cena gave CJSellers an Attitude Adjustment, which allowed Kevin Steen to retain his title shortly after Cena threw the referee back in.
Ring of Honor has stated many times that John Cena appearing was not not planned at all and that they were shocked he showed up.
However, it has been questioned whether or not CJSellers, Kevin Steen and John Cena were working together throughout the whole incident, as a way to try and change the wrestling business.
CJSellers and John Cena both announced that them continuing to appear for any wrestling business outside the WFF or the WWE was bad for business. They stated that it was disrespectful and that they will no longer appear for Ring of Honor.
