Jerry is also known for being the older brother of wrestling success, Chase Harper, who helped train him. Just like his brother, he also received training from Jason Krow and was trained lightly by Devin Copeland.
Life was not easy for Jerry Smith growing up. His parents both died when he was young, leading to going to an orphanage and eventually moving to Texas. His younger brother had began to watch wrestling when they moved to Texas, but Jerry was too busy being like a father to Jared. After watching his little brother's success, he decided that he could become a wrestler. He went to his brother for training and soon afterwards, he signed a deal with the WWH.
World Wrestling Headquarters (2008-2009)Edit
On August 14, 2008, Jerry Smith signed a contract to WWH and made his debut on August 24 in a losing effort. On the August 28 edition of Super Showdown, Jerry Smith beat three other men to qualify for the Shogun tournament. On September 12th, Jerry Smith announced that he had a new tag team partner, Mikey Hunter, and called themselves "The Enigmatic Souls". They debuted the next week in a losing effort to The Kaname Brothers (Shane and Johnny). Jerry's career in WWH continued to plummet until his releasing the next year after his signing.
Independent circuit (2009-2012)Edit
After he was released from WWH, he made his wrestling appearances scarce. Mainly wrestling around the western coast, he continued to not have big success in professional wrestling and, at one point, considered quitting the profession. He made small appearances with his brother (now going by the name Chase Harper as apart of a story) where he would call himself Christian Harper but never made wrestling appearances with him. In mid-2011, he sought further training from Devin Copeland and spent months improving himself. He returned to wrestling in December under the name Justin Nitro and began to see some success.
World Elite Wrestling (2012-present)Edit
Speculation began to circle after Devin made a return to wrestling at World Elite Wrestling that Justin may follow him. Rumors began to fly around that negotiations were being made for a contract. This was later confirmed on his Twitter account. Negotiations finalized on June 20th, also confirmed on his Twitter account. He made his debut on the WEW Draft episode of Monday Night Animosity where he was the last elimination in an over-the-top rope battle royal where the winner's brand would gain three draft picks, eliminated by Danny Blade. After the match, Justin became a draft pick and was drafted to Animosity.
