Another one of the WWE's All American Athletes, along with his long time partner Shelton Benjamin, Charlie Haas has experienced multitudes of success throughout his professional wrestling career. After finishing a good run in the Independent Circuit, Haas was swiped up by Ohio Valley Wrestling. In 2002, he was called up to the World Wrestling Entertainment main roster. He began his career on the Smackdown brand of WWE as a member of Team Angle, along with Kurt Angle and Shelton Benjamin. Charlie held the WWE Tag Team Championships two times with Shelton Benjamin, and once with fellow SmackDown! star, Rico, before heading to RAW in the 2004 Draft Lottery. After a few small feuds with small significance, Haas was released from the WWE on July 8, 2005.

On December of 2005, Charlie Haas was resigned with the WWE. After a short stint in OVW, he returned to the WWE main roster of Raw by defeating his long time partner and fellow WWE Tag Team Champion, Shelton Benjamin. After his return, Haas once again took part in small filler feuds. Although, there were one or two occasions where Haas would be pushed into slightly larger feuds, with the likes of Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy for the World Tag titles, along with his former partner Shelton Benjamin. November 20, 2007, Shelton was moved to the ECW brand, and Charlie was once again thrown down into the minor leagues of the business, barely making any on air appearances. He gained more air time on Monday Night Raw as a comedy character mimicking WWE legends such as Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin and even divas like Beth Phoenix. Charlie then was in a short-lived tag team with Mike Knox and was then released.
