Professional wrestling career
Early career and first championship matches (2012–2014)
Ferguson began wrestling training in 2009, training with Joel Redman and the UK Dominator at the Devon Wrestling Alliance wrestling school; however due to other commitments did not pursue wrestling further at that time. In 2012, Ferguson started pro wrestling training again at the Limited Edition Promotions training school in Torquay, which coincided with his brother Darren opening Pro Wrestling Pride. Later that year Ferguson joined Megaslam wrestling in Yorkshire at their annual holiday camp tour, before his debut match for PWP against Morgan Webster in April 2013; which he would win.
Tiger wrestled exclusively for Pro Wrestling Pride in 2013, with his second match being involved in a fatal-4-way for the PWP Catch Division Championship, won by Darren Saviour. He challenged for the championship twice more in 2013, losing on both occasions to Tyler Hawke. This led to an "I Quit" match between the two, with Tiger putting his mask on the line for the championship. Tiger defeated Hawke to win his first professional wrestling championship. Tiger held onto the championship for just over a month, but lost his first defence of the belt to Dick Riley in Saltash, Cornwall.
Wrestling Time (2014–2015)
Tiger tagged with Raven, and Darren Saviour in a hardcore 6-man tag in August 2014, which was thought to be Raven's last ever UK appearance, as the trio defeated Hawke, and his stable mates (Mark Walsh & Calum Cain). Tiger start edup a new tag team, teaming with Saviour, calling the team "Wrestling Time", based on the popular animated TV show Adventure Time. The pair wpm the vacant PWP Tag team Championships on 5 October 2014, defeating French pair 'Le Cousins Autier', for Tiger's second championship.
"Wrestling Time" looked to hold the championships into 2015, with a win over The Dunne Bros (Damien Dunne and Pete Dunne), but lost the belts to Danny and Mark Walsh in December. On 25 January 2015, Tiger wrestled former Tiger Mask Koji Kanemoto, at PWP Fighting Spirit, but would lose. Tiger claimed the match was "probably one of the biggest moments in wrestling (he) will ever have." Tiger then defeated Dick Riley, before claiming his second PWP Catch Division Championship once again defeating Tyler Hawke in Newton Abbot.
Tiger made his debut outside of Pro Wrestling Pride when he wrestled for the Plymouth Wrestling Alliance tag team championships on 22 February 2015. "Wrestling Time" challenged PJ Jones and The UK Dominator, for the belts, but would come up short. Tiger returned to defeat John Harding at the companies 6th anniversary show, at the Plymouth Guildhall. Tiger also wrestled for the Combat Sports Federation in May, defeating Joshua Knott. He defended the Catch Division championship throughout the first half of 2015, defeating Chris Sabin (in a four-way including Harding and Knott), Jigsaw, Rockstar Spud and Kiaser in a triple threat and Chris Hero. On 2 August 2015 Tiger lost the belt to Doug Williams, when the latter cashed in a Money in the Bank briefcase, having only just defeated Hero. Tiger regained the championship against Williams two weeks later in Taunton.
On 21 August 2015 Tiger successfully defended the championship in a fatal-4-way match in Newton Abbot, defeating Gideon, John Harding and Eddie Ryan.
