In 1995 on the way to LA, Torborg met Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage.

Torborg was trained by The Warlord and Jim Neidhart and debuted in 1998.

He debuted in WCW and was said to have been a member of the WCW Pit Crew and was training in the WCW Power Plant.

In 1995, he then worked for the American Wrestling Federation as The MVP, a baseball player character.

After the AWF closed he was employed by World Championship Wrestling and was sent to the Power Plant to train.

Some of the wrestlers in the Power Plant at that time were Bill Goldberg, Lodi, Chuck Palumbo, Mark Jindrak, Jimmy Yang, Evan Karagias, Shane Helms, Allan Funk, Christie Wolf, Ron Reis and many more future superstars.

In 1998, he started to get a push as the MVP but after two matches as the MVP, he was asked to portray a character named The Demon.

WCW head Eric Bischoff struck a deal with the rock band Kiss to create a Kiss-themed wrestler, "The Demon", a gimmick modeled on the stage persona of Gene Simmons.
