Brendli first became known on the independent circuit as "Livewyre", occasionally competing under a mask as both El Mondo and El Livewyre.

In Feburay 2005, Mike was signed by the WWE, and sent to their development territoy, Ohio Valley Wrestling.

Here he joined The Spirit Squad. This got him and the rest of the team called up to the RAW roster, where they went on to feud with the likes of Degeneration X (HHH & Shawn Michaels) and Ric Flair. The team also went on to win the WWE World Tag Team titles from Kane & Big Show.

The team eventually fell apart, with the leader Kenny staying on RAW, while all the other members got sent back to OVW.
