Ruas signed with WWE in 2015. He was part of Raw Underground in August 2020 and was drafted to Raw in the 2020 WWE Draft before moving to NXT.

Ruas last competed on the November 18, 2020 episode of NXT, losing to Kushida. He underwent shoulder surgery in December 2020. Fightful reported at the time, "Fightful has learned that Arturo Ruas sustained an arm injury, feared to be a torn biceps on this week's episode of NXT in his match with Kushida. Ruas filmed some additional content for WWE digital, but it didn't end up making air. When we asked about his status on Raw, we're told that the company sidelining Raw Underground set the stage for his NXT return, as many expected. His NXT appearance was not scheduled to be a one-off, as there were creative plans for him moving forward in NXT."
