From 2004 to 2016, as Gama Singh Jr., he wrestled solely in the Canadian promotions including Stampede Wrestling, All-Star Wrestling, Prairie Wrestling Alliance, Great North Wrestling and Power Zone Wrestling.

The Desi Hit Squad finished the year with a match during the December 6, episode of Impact!, defeating the team of Damien Hyde and Manny Lemons.

The Desi Hit Squad returned for the January 3, 2019 episode of Impact! in a tag match against the team of Fallah Bahh and KM, a match which was observed by Scarlett Bordeaux, in hopes of winning her favor.
