Professional wrestling career

Singles career

Mack began wrestling under the name Dexter Poindexter. In 2006, however, changed his character as a result of Nick Dinsmore's similar character, Eugene. Mack then began wrestling as "The Encore". He joined Dale Gagne's American Wrestling Association, competing from coast to coast. Mack then had his sites set on the AWA Light-Heavyweight Championship and he would obtain his goal at all costs. He turned on his brother Kirby and aligned himself with manager Thomas Simpson to win the Light-Heavyweight title. In a match that saw the AWA divided and recognizing two Light-Heavyweight Champions (Kirby Mack and Xsiris), TJ would climb the ladder himself to combine both titles and become the only recognized AWA Light-Heavyweight Champion.

Team MackTion

In 2006 TJ, with his brother Kirby, as Team MackTion, captured the AWA Tag Team Championship. After losing the title to Steve Corino and Ricky Landell, they would then again reclaim the title for a second time. On September 7, 2006 in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, Mack and Kirby faced The Latin American Xchange (Homicide and Hernandez) in a losing effort.
