Independent Circuit

After being leaving RW in the company of his brother, Dumas started to wrestler as a single wrestler in some independent federations. Without much success, he joined his brother in the road and they both won some more Tag Team Titles. Earlier in 2006 they got back in Rampage Wrestling.

The Return to Rampage

In February of the year 2006, Dumas got back into Rampage Wrestling. There, he and his brother come back, as a team, but with a new name, Re-Volution. Later that year, after holding the Tag Team Titles some more times, Dumas earned his ticket to the Main Event. He was then schedule to a match for the most prestigious prize on Rampage, the National Hardcore Championship. Dumas won the match, being the youngest to ever hold that title in Rampage. After that win, Dumas debuted himself as The King of Hardcore and under the name of Taker Kid, meaning the boy who takes chances. But the title hold wasn’t too big for Dumas, as he lost the title early in 2007. In April 2007, Nick Andrews let Dumas go and join Vince and Shane McMahon’s federation, WWE Action.

WWE Action

Taker Kid made his debut in the official WWE ring in the April 9, 2007. Not to wrestle, but to show himself to the crowd. Shane and Vince liked this new boy and decided to give him a chance at the Supershow next week.

Debut

On the April 16th, Taker wrestled in a Raw vs Smackdown Match, facing the Smackdown’s World’s Strongest Man, Mark Henry. Taker came on screen, proclaiming that he was where everybody wanted to be, and that is on top of Raw, as it was shown as the arena where Monday Night Raw was happening. Later on that night, Taker came to the ring after being disrespected by Mark Henry, that mocked his way of life, by rapping. Taker then rapped in the middle of the ring, showing that he always has something to say. Taker won the match after two huge Spears, making a name for himself and earning the respect from Shane McMahon. After the match he joined forces with Candice Michelle, who started to manage him.

The Big Push

On April 23 Taker was set to face Randy Orton for the WWE Action Championship. After some intense trade of words from each other, they made their best to win the match, but in the end, Randy Orton prevailed himself, by RKO’ing Dumas for the pin, becoming the first ever WWE Action Champion. In the end of the match, Shane McMahon appeared and made notice that Taker would have his rematch in two weeks. Orton sent a message for Taker, by RKO’ing the referee in the middle of the ring. Next week on Raw, a promo was cut inside a graveyard, symbolizing the Taker Kid vs The Undertaker. Taker made a statement saying that he would put Undertaker to rest in pieces. Taker won the match, pumping him even more to next week’s match against the Champion, Randy Orton.

Boyhood Dream

Taker was determined, it was the born of a new Gimmick, Taker was now indeed a Man on a Mission and Debuted himself as the Untouchable Force, claiming that no one could touch him, not even Randy Orton. In the match, Orton tried to make Taker fall twice to the RKO, but that wouldn’t happen. Taker tried to lock the TLK, but Orton was resilient, and wouldn’t tap out. In the end, Taker countered a RKO and placed Orton on his shoulders for the final TKO. Taker then was named the Youngest WWE Action Champion, only with 22 years of age. In the end of the Match, Shane McMahon reappeared and told that Randy Orton would have one rematch and it would happen inside of a 15foot high steel cage match…who ever lose would never have a WWE Championship shot as long as the other was champion. Taker also won that match and the reign started to seem longer than the one in Rampage. Taker also fought Carlito, who was named the number one contender while the Orton / Taker feud was on. Taker won over Carlito at the Fully Loaded PPV, ending Carlito’s Undefeated Streak. Taker then started to wrestle again under the name of Dumas.

Orton won the WWE Title one more time and Orton’s partners, CM Punk and Monty Brown came to the ring to celebrate. nWo thrown Dumas out of the ring, making him fall on the wrong foot, aggravating the injury.

Injury

While on his injury, Dumas cut a promo on Monday Night Raw warning Orton that he would go after him and the title, soon as he was back in the business, telling him to “Run before you Burn”. But the revenge would never happen, as Dumas stayed out of WWE Action due injury and Vince quit WWE Action, being that the breakdown of the Federation.
