The following week, Stevens and James defeated WWE Tag Team Champions Paul London and Brian Kendrick in a non-title match. On the August 18 edition of SmackDown, Stevens and James ambushed the Tag Team Champions.
James and Stevens had a lot of run-ins with WWE Tag Team Champions Paul London and Brian Kendrick and The Pitbulls (until Kid Kash was released from his contract), leading up to a title match at No Mercy, which London and Kendrick won.
He appeared regularly on ECW as a jobber throughout the end of 2007 and the start of 2008, losing to wrestlers such as Kevin Thorn, CM Punk, Shelton Benjamin and others. After a period of inactivity, he returned on the July 22, 2008 edition of ECW, losing to Evan Bourne. He wrestled his final WWE match on the August 5 edition of ECW in a losing effort to Braden Walker.
