Batista tried out at the WCW Power Plant but was told he would never make it in the wrestling business by Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker.He then went to the WWF who sent him to work with Afa Anoa'i. He wrestled in Anoa'i's WXW promotion under the name Kahn.
He made his Ohio Valley Wrestling debut in 2000, joining forces with Synn. During his tenure in OVW, he was called Leviathan.
