New Age Wrestling (2010 - 2011)
Spriter would make his debut in NAW as the new member of Raven's Flock, he would defeat Pornoman in a handicap match with Raven for the NAW Intercontinental Championship at New-WWE/NAW Night of Champions.

In the next episode Spriter would face off against Chris Johansen and Larry It and Kane for a chance to face The Rock at NAW North Full Potential for the NAW World Heavyweight Championship, however he would lose.
At Full Potential it was announced that The Flock, Spriter, Ryan ReX and Shawn Dynasty, had been disbanded. This would not affect Spriter as much as the other two as Spriter did not have much contact with Ryan ReX and Shawn Dynasty after Raven had left the NAW Roster. The three then faced off where the winner would become a No. 1 Contender to the NAW World Heavyweight Championship. Even though Spriter landed his finishing move onto Shawn Dynasty, Ryan ReX would steal the win.
Frustrated over this loss he blamed Shawn Dynasty for not kicking out. This sparked a rivalry between the two where Spriter would attack Shawn Dynasty match after match. During this time Spriter was booked to face off against Bret Michaels, but Bret was attacked by Pornoman before the match allowing Spriter to pick up an easy win. At NAW Anarchy Anniversary 2010 Spriter would lose to Shawn Dynasty.

Spriter defeated Danny Jackpot in a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors allowing him to compete in a NAW Hardcore Championship match against XtremeTony, Guile and Arthur "Bonecrusher" Johnson in a Steel Cage match where Spriter escaped the cage allowing him to win his second NAW Hardcore Championship. Hours later Spriter would lose the Hardcore Championship to Matt Hardy.
Spriter would compete in a 4 man battle royal against Ryan ReX, Kane & Larry It where Spriter would be eliminated by his Vendetta II opponent, Ryan ReX. At Vendetta II Spriter was defeated by Ryan ReX, which was called a close match and could possibly be NAW's MOTY. Soon after this NAW would close it's doors leaving Steven without a job.
On what appeared to be a one match only return of NAW, Spriter would finally be able to defeat Larry It, who was his current partner in New-WWE.
NAW Return (2010 - 2011)
On the return of NAW he would team up with Larry It once again to face off against Chris Johansen and Ryan ReX, where the winning team would face off against each other at NAW Mayhem 20 for the Intercontinental Championship, where he and Larry It would be successful.

Spriter was then booked in the NAW King of the World 2011 Tournament. He was able to defeat his first round opponent, NAW Television Champion Evan O'Shea. In the second round he would viciously attack The Crippler prior to the match, thus DQ'ing and eliminating himself out of the tournament. He would then be in a #1 Contender's match to the NAW Television Championship, against Link, Shawn Dynasty and The Crippler. He would be eliminated by The Crippler, but after the match the two brawled on the stage, with Spriter getting the last word.
At some point Spriter would rename to Santos and compete against The Crippler at New-WWE/NAW WrestleMania VIII in a Loser Leaves NAW match, which The Crippler would win causing Santos to leave the company.
New-WWE Raw (2010)
Soon after NAW closed it's doors Spriter was picked up by Raw. He would make his first New-WWE appearance attacking Danny Jackpot and Jason Hawkinz at New-WWE Night of Champions 2 with the help of Larry It.

He would then make his debut match which was at the IWT World Title, Road to the Gold Tournament Match facing Kurt Angle, however he would lose due to outside interference from Jason Matthews.
At a lWT house show, Sprite would defeat TY to become the IWT Japanese Champion which he would rename to the IWT Spritenation Championship. On several house shows he would capture the IWT Legends Championship and the IWT Legends Tag Team Championship with CYBERDOMAINIAN, this would make Spriter one of the 3 people who are currently eligible to claim the Denny's Grandslam with only the KO-I Tag Team Championship and the IWT World Championship left to capture.
At IWT One Night Stand, Spriter would face off against fellow Unamerican, Otto "The Party Mountie", whom he would defeat to advance in the 12 man tournament for the IWT World Title, however he would lose in the semi-finals along with Devil Goat against the eventual winner of the tournament, Kenzo Suzuki.Sprite successfully retained his title for the fourth time against Coca Cola Can at IWT Xtra V. On IWT Pass Out Episode 2, Sprite made his return this time on commentary. Later on a IWT Xtra Special, Spriter purposely dropped the Japanese Title to Cowlex. This was a sign to management as he intends to move to the main event.
IWT would end in 2012, releasing Spriter from his contract.
Jeri-MAX (2010 - )
On December 9 2010, Spriter was chosen to be a rookie for the Jeri-MAX Show PMX where he will be mentored by Pacman Jones. However after Black Hole II he would be signed to the Jeri-Max roster by Sakoda. He would lose on his debut match against Matt Eichorn. After defeating Mongo McMichael, Spriter would lose a 4-Way match for the Hardcore Championship at Jeri-MAX Ooze 2. During that match, he gained the attention of Women's Champion Linda McSeven, who went on to root for him and give him the nickname "The Dark Horse."
On the following WARP, Spriter teamed up with McSeven in a losing effort against KAMA and Kim Sakoda. After the match, Linda McMahon came down to the ring and accused McSeven of being a man. Spriter would then assault McMahon with a series of Spriterplexes, allowing McSeven to escape. Spriter would continue to back McSeven as her bodyguard for months. On Episode 39, Spriter called out Blee Blee Blee, Linda's Horizon opponent, for constantly mocking her and calling her a man. After Blee got in the ring and berated him, Spriter would retaliate and assault Blee with a baseball bat, as well as a number of Spriterplexes.
On the next episode, Spriter would be defeated in a match by Blee. Afterwards, Linda McSeven would come out and assault him while firing him for not getting the job done against an 8-Year-Old. Spriter would get his revenge at Jeri-MAX Horizon where he would assault his former boss and almost was able to unmask her in the process. After Linda escaped, Spriter promised that next time there would be nowhere for her to go. After Linda assaulted Spriter in the back of the head with a horse shoe, they agreed to a "Dark Horse Rules" match at JeriMania II: The Quickening. The rules were that there were no count outs (so Linda couldn't run away) and that the use of horse shoes as a weapon was legal.
At Jeri-Mania, Spriter would defeat Linda in the Dark Horse Rules match. When she tried to run away, Spriter brought out The Crippler as backup. Together they trapped Linda and sent her into the ring where she was unmasked and revealed to be none other than Bubba the Love Fudge.
At the Jeri-MAX King of the Heavens Tournament, Spriter was defeated in the first round by European Champion Dorf Liggleton, who beat him down with multiple finishing moves while mocking his "Spriter" name. After Dorf was defeated in the 2nd Round by Lamarell McDaniel, Spriter would attack him from behind, revealing that he would be competing under the name Steven Santos from now on. Due to the heat between the two, GM Frollo would later announced a European Championship match between the two at the upcoming Season 3 Black Hole CPV, which Santos would go on to win, earning his first championship in Jeri-MAX. His reign would be shortlived though, as Dorf regained the title on the following episode of WARP after using his rematch clause. Santos would go on to do the same thing, using his rematch clause on the following episode of VORTEX, where he would defeat Dorf and win the European Championship for a 2nd time. His reign would come to an end at the hands of Dorf once again on the following WARP.
After beating Dorf for the title again on Episode 52, Frollo would come out and get rid of the Rematch Clause in Jeri-MAX for every belt due to the ridiculousness of the Santos/Liggleton series. Frollo also announced one final bout between Santos and Dorf at Jeri-MAX Ooze 3; stating that after this match, Santos and Liggleton will never face each other ever again. Santos would ultimately defeat Dorf one last time, and became the first of the two to successfully retain the European Championship. After failing to win the Global Equality Bash tournament, Santos would lose the European Championship to ❄ (The Artist Formerly Known as Winter Bradleys), in a triple threat match that also included Zeb Kolton on the Jeri-MAX Spiral Rumble Pre-Show.
Spriter would show up again after his title loss on Episode 58 in order to try and persuade "The Beast" Dan The Beast Severn to leave his pimp, Kim Sakoda, and be a free man. On the following episode, Santos would defeat Severn in a match without Kim at ringside. However, she would use the loss as proof that Severn needed her around. Afterwards, Elevensai would attack Severn in order to sabotage Kim's business and Santos would stand there and allow it to happen in order to emphasize to Severn what associating with Kim does to his wellbeing. After Severn finally abandoned Kim Sakoda, Santos would save The Beast from a 2-on-1 beatdown by Elevensai and Sakoda on Episode 60. This led to a tag match between Santos/Severn and the Ni Juu Ichi on the Jeri-MAX Horizon Pre-Show where Santos and Severn won by count-out after Santos used an MMA chokehold on Elevensai on the outside.
On Episode 63, Santos defeated Severn to qualify for the Money in the Jeri-Bank Ladder Match at JeriMania the Third. However, it was Grover Cleveland who wound up winning said ladder match, in the end.
