He is currently wrestling for All Japan Pro Wrestling as a member of the Voodoo Murders. He is also the part owner of the Springfield Stallions Continental Indoor Football League team.
 
Connor began his wrestling career in New Jersey as Ace the Animal. He then wrestled Earthquake in the WWF in 1993 under his given name as a jobber. This led to his first widely known role in Smoky Mountain Wrestling, playing the "head of security" for The Gangstas. When the Gangstas Left SMW in 1995, he signed a deal with the the WWF and was sent to the Heartland Wrestling Association for more training.
World Wrestling Federation / Entertainment
Connor made his official WWF debut in 1997 as D'Lo Brown a member of the stable the Nation of Domination. After turning on the first leader of the faction Faarooq, he eventually turned on the new leader of the group, The Rock and allied himself with then face Mark Henry. His trademark at this time was his chest protector, which he would wear to the ring, supposedly for a torn pectoral muscle sustained in a match against Dan "The Beast" Severn. Instead, he would use the chest protector to his advantage, making his finishing move The 'Lo Down more effective. He would eventually turn face and formed a tag team with Henry in the 1990s, which was moderately successful. His career peaked when he held the European and Intercontinental Championships simultaneously, a feat duplicated by a select few, including Olympian Kurt Angle and Jeff Jarrett.
 
Brown inadvertently ended the career of Darren Drozdov when he botched a running powerbomb when a fan threw a beverage into the ring, causing Brown to slip, in a match that was planning to be aired on the October 7 edition of WWF SmackDown!. The match was never aired and Drozdov suffered a severe neck injury, leaving him a quadriplegic. Brown would then form a tag team in July 2000 with Chaz named Lo Down. The team mostly wrestled on Sunday Night HEAT and WWE Jakked/Metal. Shortly after the team forming, Tiger Ali-Singh joined the fray to become their manager. The tag team would then come dressed towards the ring in Arabic ring attire and took on a gimmick very similar to Tiger's. The team was removed from WWF TV in January 2001. Chaz and Tiger Ali-Singh would later be released by WWE while D'Lo Brown stayed in WWE's developmental territory. D'Lo returned to TV on the April 28, 2002 episode of Heat, losing to Eddie Guerrero.
 
For the rest of the year, D'Lo Brown would mostly wrestle on Heat as well as do a little bit on commentary on the show and even started a brief feud with Raven. In late 2002, Theodore Long would retire as a WWE referee and manage D'Lo after D'Lo complained about acts of racism being portrayed on him during his matches. D'Lo started Theodore Long's group Thuggin' and Buggin' Enterprises which eventually turned into a group of African Americans who worked a race angle in which they felt they were victims of racism and were being held down by the "white man." With Long's managerial services, D'Lo Brown went undefeated for several weeks.
Brown faced Booker T in a losing effort on the February 10, 2003 episode of RAW'. His involvement with Thuggin' and Buggin' Enterprises was then brought to a close as footage was shown on the February 16, 2003 episode of Heat of Theodore Long kicking D'Lo Brown to the curb and introducing his replacement Rodney Mack. He was then released from his contract on February 14, 2003.

All Japan Pro Wrestling / Indy Promotions
Connor, still under the D'lo Brown name, went on to wrestle for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling and All Japan Pro Wrestling, competing in regular tour with the Japanese company as a member of Roughly Obsess & Destroy (RO&D). During one of these tours on September 17, 2006, Brown betrayed RO&D to join the rival Voodoo Murders faction.
When not in Japan, Brown was regularly found touring the United Kingdom, as well as working for Irish Whip Wrestling in Ireland. In April 2005, Brown became one of the lead trainers of the ill-fated Celebrity Wrestling on ITV. This Saturday evening reality show saw celebrities learn wrestling and compete in challenge matches. After a few weeks the programme was to be cancelled, but was instead moved to Sunday mornings to finish its final episodes. During his time wrestling in England, he would face off in a series of matches against his Celebrity Wrestling opposition's trainer, Joe Legend.
