World Wrestling Entertainment/WWE

Florida Championship Wrestling (2010–2012)

After signing with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Clement made his debut for the company's developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) on December 2, 2010, at a live event. After going through several ring names,[3][9] Clement made his television debut as Mike Dalton on the July 17, 2011 episode of FCW TV in a loss to Rusev.[10] He earned his first win in FCW on November 17, 2011, against Peter Orlov.[9] On December 15, Dalton won a Battle Royal to earn the right to compete for the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship.[9][11] He challenged Leo Kruger, but lost the match.[9] Dalton won the FCW Heavyweight Championship on February 2, 2012, when he defeated Kruger.[12] His reign lasted 21 days and he lost the rematch and the title to Kruger.[12][13]

NXT (2012–2015)

When WWE rebranded FCW into NXT Wrestling,[14] Dalton débuted as an enhancement talent on the June 20, 2012, episode of rebooted NXT show, where he teamed with CJ Parker and lost to The Ascension (Kenneth Cameron and Conor O'Brian).[15] Dalton got his first victory when teamed with Jason Jordan and defeated the team of Hunico and Camacho on August 1,[16] but lost in a rematch against the two few weeks later.[17]

In the beginning of 2013, seeing that Dalton's character hadn't receive much of the fans' attention, WWE officials informed him that in order to remain with WWE he should get a new character.[18] On the July 24 episode of NXT, Clement re–débuted with his new gimmick, as Tyler Breeze, a narcissistic "pretty boy" obsessed with taking selfies, even during matches;[19][20] and later was revealed that Clement himself came up with the character, with Triple H giving him the suggestion of using an iPhone to take pictures as a way to bring the character more modern.[18] Soon after, Breeze started a feud with CJ Parker, after repeatedly being "photobombed" by Parker.[21][22][23] After the two were put in a tag team match against Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady, which they lost after Parker refused to tag in Breeze,[24] a match between the two took place on the October 16 episode of NXT, which Breeze won.[25] Two weeks later, Parker defeated Breeze in a rematch, and ended their feud.[26]

In December, Breeze helped Bo Dallas retain the NXT Championship during a lumberjack match against Adrian Neville,[27] which resulted a match between the two on the January 15, 2014, episode of NXT, where Neville was victorious.[28][29] Month later, in a rematch, Neville once again defeated Breeze.[30] On February 27, at NXT Arrival, Breeze was scheduled to face Xavier Woods, but both men were attacked by Alexander Rusev, rendering the match a no contest.[31] Throughout March, Breeze continued his feud with Woods, by attacking him before a match with Rusev,[32] before the two faced each other in a match, which Breeze won.[33] On the May 8 episode of NXT, Breeze participated in a 20-man battle royal, for a shot at the NXT Championship, and was involved in a three–way tie.[34] As a result, Breeze faced the other two winners, Sami Zayn and Tyson Kidd in a triple–threat match on the following week, which Kidd won.[35] On May 29, at NXT TakeOver, Breeze defeated Zayn in another number one contender's match[36][37] but in mid–June he suffered a broken finger, which kept him out of action for a month.[38] Breeze returned on the July 24 episode of NXT, defeating Mojo Rawley[39] and received his title match against Neville on the August 14 episode of NXT, but was unsuccessful after Kidd interfered and caused a disqualification.[40] This led to a match between Kidd and Breeze, on the following week, which Kidd won, when Breeze counted himself out.[41] On September 11, Breeze, along with Zayn and Kidd, once again challenged unsuccessfully for the title at NXT TakeOver: Fatal 4-Way.[42] Prior to this, Breeze made his main roster début on the September 8 episode of Raw, teaming with Kidd in a match against Neville and Zayn, to hype their title match.[43] Throughout the next months, Breeze competed in various matches, but was not involved in any feud.[44][45][46][47][48]

On the December 18 episode of NXT, a cell phone vignette from Breeze aired, claiming that he was taking a short break from NXT to model overseas.[49] He returned on the January 8, 2015 episode of NXT, defeating the débuting Chad Gable.[50] On the January 21 episode of NXT, Breeze was defeated by Hideo Itami in a first round match of a tournament to determine the new number one contender for the NXT Championship.[51] In a rematch at NXT TakeOver: Rival, on February 11, Itami again defeated Breeze.[52] Breeze's rivalry with Itami continued and the two along with Finn Bálor were scheduled for a triple–threat number one contender's match at NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable, on May 20, however, Itami was attacked in the parking lot, and the match was turned into a one on one between Breeze and Bálor, which Bálor won.[53][54] During the tapings of NXT, on July 16, William Regal announced that Breeze would wrestle a match at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, on August 22, against Jushin Thunder Liger,[55] which Liger won.[56] Breeze then entered the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament, where he was paired with Bull Dempsey. The two were eliminated from the tournament by Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano on the September 9 episode of NXT when Dempsey got pinned.[57] This led to a match between the two on the September 23 episode of NXT, which Breeze won.[58] On October 7, at NXT TakeOver: Respect, Breeze competed in a match against Apollo Crews, which he would lose.[59]

Main roster (2015–present)

On the October 22 episode of SmackDown, Breeze débuted on WWE's main roster during a Miz TV segment, where he aligned himself with Summer Rae and attacked Dolph Ziggler.[60] On the November 9 episode of Raw, Breeze made his in–ring début, losing to Dean Ambrose in a first round match from the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament.[61] Throughout November, Breeze continued his feud with Ziggler,[62][63] which culminated in a match between the two at Survivor Series,[64] which Breeze won.[65]On the November 23 episode of Raw, Breeze and Kevin Owens faced Dean Ambrose & Dolph Ziggler in a losing effort.
