Jared was more famous in his earlier career inside of the wrestling businesses WWE Wrestling 23 and WWE Evolved using his former WWH ring name, Fly Boy (as tribute to "Fly Boy" Rocco Rock), holding a record for a championship in both businesses. He was the first-ever World Heavyweight Champion (usually referred to as just World Champion) in WWE Evolved and the longest reigning Cruiserweight Champion in WWE Wrestling 23, only losing the championship due to dropping it to move to a different brand and keeping the championship on it's respectful brand.
In World Wrestling Headquarters, he made an immediate impact, defeating mentor Jason Krow in an All or Nothing ECW Rules match for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. In a later run, he changed his in-ring name to Chase Harper, saying it was his kayfabe birth name. During this time, he gained the Rolling the Dice Midcard Briefcase, however was unable to cash it in before the company folded.
Jared lost both of his parents at the age of nine when they were hit head on by a drunken driver coming back home. This lead to him and his older brother to go to an orphanage in which he was later adopted within a year and moved to Texas. From then on, he began watching wrestling (due to his fraternal parents' addiction). He then knew that it was what he was destined to do. Straight after high school, he began training for a wrestling career. He soon moved back to Kentucky on his own and began training with long-time friends, Jack Flener and Zach Marlow, who were themselves training for pro wrestling careers.
Evolved/Wrestling 23 EraEdit
WWE 65 Game (2005)Edit
Jared soon found himself under contract with WWE Evolved (then known as WWE 65 Game), debuting as Fly Boy. His debut was of legendary status, as he debuted in it's SmackDown brand in a 20-Man Battle Royal, where the winner would be the first-ever World Heavyweight Champion. He entered at number 13 and was the eventual winner, last eliminating Tony Daniels. He took pride within his career at this point, becoming a classic face and fed upon the crowd's love each and every week. Along the way, he teamed up with Rob Van Dam and was named the WWE Tag Team Champions, thus making him 65 Game's first double champion, holding both the WWE Tag Team Championships and the World Heavyweight Championship.
His career within 65 Game continued to grow, even after the switch from 65 Game to Evolved, and he defeated challenges from the likes of Kevin Backstreet, Tony Daniels, and Spikey. But, it was short-thrived, as only after four months of being World Heavyweight Champion, he suffered a torn ACL and had to give in his Tag Team Championship and World Heavyweight Championship due to his legit injury.
WWE Wrestling 23 (2005)Edit
During this time, Jared had done double duty, as he also worked for WWE Wrestling 23. Similar to Evolved, he was a first-ever champion, except it was the Cruiserweight Championship. They were in lack of high-flyers, which lead to him having to wrestle with the heavyweights. This also lead to him being the longest lasting Cruiserweight Champion in the history of Wrestling 23.
This championship reign was also lost not by losing it to a person, but by handing it in. The stakes were a little different, however. ECW and SmackDown were in a brand war and on an episode of SmackDown, current ECW general manager Brock Lesnar sent out an open challenge to SmackDown general manager Edge (Adam Copeland) for his ECW Extremist, Ace Steel, against a SmackDown superstar of his choice. Edge decided to send out a "trustworthy" superstar of his, which eventually turned out to be Jared. But, he confronted Edge afterwards and threw down the Cruiserweight Championship, making his betrayal to SmackDown and moved to ECW, becoming their first ECW Cruiserweight Champion in the process.
This also wouldn't last but two weeks, as his torn ACL caused his release from Wrestling 23 and to give up his championship.
Injury (Late 2005-Late 2006)Edit
Jared went into surgery immediately afterwards and left him out of wrestling action for a whole year. This extremely upset Jared, as he had devoted his whole life to wrestling only to get a year-long legit injury.
He spent five months in rehab, but no healing had happened. Doctors were now starting to worry and thought that his wrestling days were numbered. But Jared refused to quit and spent another seven months in rehab. Finally, improvement began to show and soon enough, his leg had completely healed and he could now go back to wrestling. He met up with Evolved staff soon afterwards and resigned with them.
Return to Evolved and Heel RunEdit
Jared Smith returned surprisingly to WWE 65 Game (now known as WWE Evolved) on an episode of SmackDown after current World Heavyweight Champion, Batista, sent out an invitation to "an old friend of his" to come to the ring. Batista would soon ask Jared to join him and Re-Evolution to take on R-Evolution X. Jared followed up his offer with a superkick to Batista, thus turning him heel and he joined R-Evolution X.
Jared was now set to compete at that year's Wrestlemania in a Fatal Four-Way match for the World Heavyweight Championship, consisting of himself, Triple H, Batista, and Mark Solomon. Batista went on to retain his championship after pinning Mark after hitting his finisher while Jared was occupied with Triple H. From here on out, Jared resigned from the business and made occasional appearances, most notably in early 2008 where he had a run with the Cruiserweight Championship.
Return to Wrestling 23 (2007)Edit
Later on in 2007, Jared returned to Wrestling 23 and defeated a jobber in his return match. He also won the World Heavyweight Championship against Tony Daniels. The run was short-lived, however, as he lost it after two months back to Tony Daniels. He soon would start jobbing for wrestlers until The Ultimater made his return back to Wrestling 23, teaming up with Jared and eventually won the World Tag Team Championships. Jared would soon stop making appearances and caused his team to get the tag titles vacated from them.
Jared moved back to SmackDown later that year and was eventually named to be inside of a tournament to determine the first-ever European Championship. He eventually won the tournament in the final rounds against Genesis and Chris Jericho. He also re-teamed up with The Ultimater and won the vacant WWE Tag Team Championships against Genesis & Chris Jericho. Jared would soon, however, completely quit Wrestling 23 forever after losing both championships.
World Wrestling Headquarters (2008-2010)Edit
Jared now had other intentions besides Wrestling 23 and Evolved, signing himself to a contract to World Wrestling Headquarters (WWH) after being referred to by Zach Marlow and Jack Flener, both former superstars of the brand as Fly Boy. He debuted on the brand's pre-show before it's big Super Showdown supershow in a Fatal Four-Way Ultimate X match, which he eventually won. The week after, the promotion had another supershow, to which Jared would be in a tag team match with Bret Hart against Killer and Rhyno in it's pre-show, which his team eventually won. At the pay-per view pre-show, Jared fought in it's main event in a First Blood match against AJ Styles, yet again winning.
Thursday Night ShowdownEdit
After weeks of dominance, Jared was promoted to it's main brand, Thursday Night Showdown. During this time, he began taking training by former World Heavyweight Champion, Jason Krow. He debuted in a 2 out of 3 falls match against Markus Martin, now dropping his Fly Boy gimmick to change to Jared Smith, still using "Fly Boy" as a nickname. He won this match and was named the number one contender for the International Championship at WarGames. This would begin a storyline feud with International Champion Jack Roby. At this point, online rumors would speculate that Jared would be joining fellow Showdown wrestlers Triple H and Eclipse in a spin-off of D-Generation X if Jared were to win the International Championship and Triple H would win the World Heavyweight Championship at WarGames, but nothing was completely confirmed and wouldn't fall through, as before WarGames, both Triple H and Eclipse were released from the company. In interviews and promos, Jared would go forth and call Roby "Captain Caveman" due to his rugged look. His winning streak was soon broken thanks to an interference from Jack Roby, causing Jared to lose against Tomko and receiving his first loss in WWH. He would lose the next week in tag team action alongside current ECW World Heavyweight Champion and one-half of the World Tag Team Champions at the time, Chris Montana, against Jack Roby and freshly promoted Jake Jiles, by this point using 'Mainstream' as a full-time moniquer instead of 'Fly Boy', but still kept the nickname to continue to tribute to Rocco Rock. Jared broke his losing streak the week before WarGames in a victory against Kraig Reynolds in a Street Fight match. At WarGames, however, Jack Roby was replaced in the 30-Minute Hardcore Ironman match by Jeff Hardy and Jared loss with a score of Jeff Hardy 3 and Jared 1.
The next Showdown, Jared won a match against Chris Montana. Afterwards, Jason Krow came in and attacked Chris, leading up to Alexis Hart (general manager of Showdown) kayfabe bannishing Chris Montana from the WWH. At the 4 Year Anniversary Super Showdown event, Jared fought in a Stairway to Hell match against Mr. Kennedy in a winning effort. Due to stipulations, Jared would now go to the Grindhouse pay-per view in an ECW TV/World Heavyweight Championship unification match against Jason Krow, Jared's WWH trainer. The week after, Jared picked up a win against World Heavyweight Champion, Shane McMahon, in a Tables match with help from a distraction by Jeff Hardy. At WWH's annual Grindhouse pay-per view, Jared received his first taste of gold within WWH when he defeated Jason Krow to become the ECW World Heavyweight Champion. In his first defense of the ECW Championship, Jared successfully defended the title in an ECW Rules match against Sean Hunter, but would lose the championship at SummerSlam back to Jason Krow in a Hell in a Cell match. On September 7, 2008, Jared Smith released on WWH.com that he had left the company due to personal problems and a severe knee injury.
Return to WWHEdit
Jared later returned to WWH, where he went on another winning streak and eventually qualified for a five-man ladder match to determine who would obtain the vacant Rolling the Dice Midcard Briefcase, similar to WWE's Money in the Bank briefcase, but only available for a mid card championship. Jared would go on to win the match in a somewhat controversial fashion, as the announcer announced him as 'Chase Harper' instead of 'Jared Smith'. The mix-up was explained on the next episode of Showdown when Twin K confronted him about the controversy, saying that 'Jared Smith did not win the Rolling the Dice briefcase, but Chase Harper did, and Chase Harper was not listed as a contestant on the match card'. He would go out to explain that he found out his real name was Chase Harper, as he was put under witness protection after the supposed accidental death of his parents was instead a murder. This lead to a rivalry between the two Superstars, which ended in only a few weeks. Before Chase could cash in the briefcase, the company folded.
Evolved: The Rebirth (2008)Edit
Rumors had been going around that Jared Smith had signed with Evolved: The Rebirth, which was formerly WWE 65 Game and WWE Evolved after they removed any WWE relations from the company. Rumors were confirmed on the second edition of Wednesday Night Wreckage when Jared shot a promo announcing his return. Jared announced that his debut match would be against Edge and that he had "evolved into a new age of what he used to be'. Plans had changed and he instead made his return by entering unexpectedly as longtime friend Kayla to help her out in a one on three handicap match against Lita, Rob Van Dam, and Tom Carey. His team picked up the win when Vile Ventura interfered while the referee was down, allowing Jared to hit his finisher to get the pinfall. The same night, Jared aligned himself with the Vile Corporation, along with Vile Ventura and Kayla. On the third edition of Wednesday Night Wreckage, Jared teamed up with current ETR Champion, Tyson 'J' North, in triple threat tag team action against Rated RKO (Edge and Randy Orton) and the team of Wreckage general manager, Dan the Man, and ETR Universal Champion, Kevin Kompiler, for Rated RKO's ETR World Tag Team Championships in a winning effort, giving Jared his second tag team title run within the company. Jared would soon get a major knee injury that would enable him unable to wrestle, thus having him surrender the tag team titles, as he had a championship match that week on Saturday Night Rage.
Two months later, he made his return back to the ring on Wednesday Night Wreckage after Jack Savage's match against Nitrous when Nitrous gave a post-match beating. Jared came rushing down and helped him out. It was later released on ETR.com that Jared had healed his knee and was forming a tag team with Jack Savage, dubbing their team "N-V-Ous". Both men left the company soon afterwards.
World Elite Wrestling (2012-present)Edit
Chase signed a deal with World Elite Wrestling on July 10. He made his debut at their annual Crossroads pay-per view, where he was selected by Adrenaline general manager, Nathan Parker, to fight Catelyn Vaine for her Titan Championship, where he defeated her. This is only the second time in WEW history that a person had won a championship in their debut. He made his Adrenaline debut in a segment where he declined an offer from Adrenaline general manager, Nathan Parker, into Team Nathan. He lost a match against Calvin Harris that was changed to a no disqualifications lumberjack match at last minute with members of Team Nathan as lumberjacks.
