In the fall of 2009, Morris debuted in Kwan Chang's Network Wrestling Alliance as "The 21st Century Killing Machine" Austin Montaro. Shortly after his debut, Montaro aligned himself with "The Starr Destroyer" Dustin Starr as the iconic MonStarr tag-team. The duo held the NWA World Tag-Team Titles on two separate occasions.

Heading into the NWA's biggest pay-per-view of the year, Starrcade, Montaro was embroiled in a violent and personal feud with the NWA Pure Violence Champion, Craig Harris. At Starrcade 2009, Montaro defeated Harris to win his first and only NWA Pure Violence Championship.
