Although both Necro and Toby were fairly well established characters in various promotions before they first teamed up, their partnership led to them capturing the CZW World Tag Team Championship, before entering the 6 man tag match main event at CZW Cage of Death 7 (on December 10, 2005) alongside Joker against Zandig (before they were regular team mates) and the H8 Club (Nick Gage and Justice Pain).
On November 4, 2006, the Tough Crazy Bastards entered the IWA Mid South Double Death Tag Tournament, eventually losing in the final to the team of Baka Gaijin (Mad Man Pondo and 2 Tuff Tony) in a No Rope Barbed Wire, Cactus Caribbean Spider Webs Death Match in which both Necro and Toby wrestled barefoot. They would later appear at Winter Wars 2007 on January 27, 2007, in a failed attempt to capture the IWA Mid-South Tag Team Championship from Ian Rotten and Mickie Knuckles.
