He was never in WWE developmental persay. He just got his initial training there and his first few matches.
Before he got to OVW he really did not work much, if any indy dates at all. He did some matches for WFX in Canada, a couple of TNA try-out matches and a few more matches on the indy scene in Florida (while he was training at Team 3D's school) but overall he couldn't have had more than 20-30 matches in front of an actual crowd before he got to OVW.
So, while he's had a lot of training (FCW, Team 3D, OVW) he's still fairly new when it comes to working in front of a crowd. That being said, he's probably more experienced at it than most indy wrestlers who've been wrestling for as long as he has because OVW runs a lot more shows than your average indy promotion, and now he's working matches on the indy scene (more so than he used to but still not that many) and obviously he's still wrestling in TNA too.
He's come a long way these past couple of years and the potential is clearly there. Now it's just a matter of him getting more seasoning and hopefully continuing to improve.
