Jossie signed a WWE developmental contract, and began working in their developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). In February 2009, he made his FCW debut working under real name, Brian Jossie with no real personality or character. He was a jobber and lost matches to Windham Rotunda. However, he was soon repackaged with a presidential gimmick, and he had acted as the FCW General Manager, first under the name Abraham Saddam Washington, before switching to the name Abraham Obama Washington.
Jossie made his ECW debut on June 30, 2009, using the ring name Abraham Washington, with a in-ring interview segment called the Abraham Washington Show. He interviewed The Bella Twins, causing a fight between the two after they argued over the questions. He has since gone on to interview the likes of Christian, Matt Hardy, Tommy Dreamer, Sheamus, Gregory Helms, John Morrison, Zack Ryder, Goldust, Trent Barreta, Caylen Croft, and Maria. Hall Of Famer Tony Atlas now acts as his Kevin Eubanks-esque sidekick and announcer, and the segment now takes place from the stage.
