Cone debuted as a referee for WWE in 2006.
Cone was born in Kansas City, Missouri where he and his wife are owners of a Donut King.
At WrestleMania 34, Cone's 10-year-old son, Nicholas, was “chosen” out of the audience by Braun Strowman to be his tag-team partner to challenge for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship in a match refereed by Cone. They won their match against The Bar, making Nicholas the youngest champion in any category in WWE history, but they relinquished the title the following night on Raw. In 2019, it was claimed that Nicholas held a red belt in karate.
