Two weeks later, Sarath won his first rookie title, when he won the PWF Northeast Tag Team Championship together with Mike Paiva.
The following decade saw him wrestle all around the US, and he was signed to Connecticut Wrestling Entertainment, Top Rope Promotions, New England Frontier Wrestling, and Chaotic Wrestling.
