This well-traveled veteran hasn't sat complacent, but rather looked for new and different opportunities to grow as a performer and a competitor. Throughout Hoyt's career, he has been a part of some memorable tag teams and stables. For example, during his time in TNA/IMPACT Wrestling, fans may recall Hoyt was one half of the Rock n Rave Infection alongside Jimmy Rave and managed by Christy Hemme over the span of two years. After his time in TNA/IMPACT Wrestling came to an end, Hoyt teamed with Curt Hawkins during his time in the WWE and FCW. At the time he was competing under the name Vance Archer. Hoyt is a member of Minoru Suzuki's Suzuki-gun as part of New Japan Pro Wrestling. While Lance Hoyt has had a fair amount of tag team success, he has flourished as a singles wrestler. His recent IWGP United States Championship is just another example of this.
