The years between 2004 and 2006 saw Heath bouncing back and forth between the newly renamed World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and the Independent circuit. He made several appearances for WWE in 2004, most notably returning to have a short feud with the Undertaker.

In mid-2005, Heath was given another short-lived WWE contract and appeared in Ohio Valley Wrestling, the primary developmental territory of WWE.
