Early career

His debut match was against IW legend Brian Sillege in which Eddie Christian stole the show and the victory along with help from then friend Ethan Stepps Following the win, Eddie was pushed into the Restricted title scene where he was caught in an ongoing rivalry with then champion Ryan Shaffer, this feud saw them in several matches in which Eddie Christian won all of them, eventually leading to the retirement of Ryan Shaffer. Eddie went on to serve as Restricted Champion, defending his title on the last Immortal Wrestling show Most Wanted against Dane Mitchell and retired from Immortal Wrestling as the last Restricted Champion.

Post-Retirement

After IW closed it's doors, Eddie Christian said that he wouldn't venture anywhere else and disappeared from the wrestling scene. During this time Eddie moved out of his parents house in Charlotte, North Carolina and moved to Jacksonville, FL where he became employed as Jacksonville International Airport as a qualified Plane Captain for the Boeing 737 airplane. Eddie brought in good money doing this, so he opted not to attend college, much to his parents dismay. Eddie eventually enrolled in Florida Community College Jacksonville in the study of Basic Electricity and Electronics. His goal at that point in time was to become an Avionics Technician for Boeing.

Return to Wrestling

The iLLuminati

Lamont along with Eddie came into Immortal Wrestling with the sole intent to rise to the top of wrestling. Lamont and Eddie had a dream to set a new world order on wrestling where guys that were underrated and held down could wrestle and really showcase their wrestling ability. In doing such, they got the attention of Eddie's mentor in Scott Rave and newcomer Ryan Chase. the iLLuminati drew presses in the Immortal Wrestling up until Revelations, where Eddie Christian won the IW World title, Chase lost his chance at the Platinum title, and Scott Rave retired all in the same night. They were viewed as a failed group until Christian brought in the services of his good friend, Robert Walker.
