Career

WWA4 Pro Wrestling School (2004–2006)

Trained by Curtis Hughes at the WWA4 Pro Wrestling School in Atlanta, Georgia, he competed as a backyard wrestler while growing up in Wyoming County, West Virginia. Following his professional wrestling debut in August 2004, he competed in Southeastern independent promotions, including televised appearances in Georgia Championship Wrestling and NWA Wildside. During 2004, while a student at WW4 Pro Wrestling School, he appeared on a two part episode on the sitcom Blue Collar TV. While wrestling for NWA Wildside, Miller won the NWA/GCW Columbus Heavyweight Championship by defeating Scotty Beach.

World Wrestling Entertainment (2006–Current)

In December 2006, Miller signed a developmental contract with WWE and was assigned to its Deep South Wrestling (DSW) terrority in Atlanta, Georgia. When the WWE ended its relationship with DSW in the spring of 2007, WWE created Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) in Tampa, Florida to be run by retired wrestler Steve Keirn. Miller was one of over twenty developmental wrestlers to relocate from Atlanta to Tampa for further training. At a June 2007 FCW show, Miller appeared as the manager of fellow developmental talent Shawn McGrath under the name Heath Wallace Miller Esq. Since then, Miller has returned to using his real name and competes as a wrestler as well as McGrath's manager.

In 2007, Miller was given a talk show called the "Happy Hour" during some FCW shows. During one segment, Billy Kidman was the guest; Miller claimed to idolize Kidman but then commented that Kidman's career was declining. This created a feud and led to a series of matches between the two. In January 2008, Miller started defending the FCW Southern Heavyweight Championship on behalf of the champion Ted DiBiase, Jr., who was injured. DiBiase soon forfeited the belt and Miller was declared the champion.

Miller and his partner Steve Lewington advanced to the finals of a tournament for the inaugural FCW Florida Tag Team Championship in February 2008. Miller and Lewington defeated Brandon Groom and Greg Jackson and The Thoroughbreds (Johnny Curtis and Kevin Kiley) to reach the finals. On February 23 2008, Miller and Lewington lost to The Puerto Rican Nightmares (Eddie Colón and Eric Perez) in the finals. On September 11, teaming with Joe Hennig, he won the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship. As champion he would change his ring name to Sebastian Slater.
