He currently wrestles on the independent circuit under his real name and competed for the for Mexican promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) under the ring name Marco Corleone for 3 years until jumping to rival promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) in March 2009.
He worked for the company for a year, before being released and joining Mexican promotion Perros del Mal.
World Championship Wrestling (2000–2001)
He was promoted to the main WCW roster in June 2000 under the Vince Russo era where he formed a tag team with fellow Power Plant graduate Sean O'Haire. In August 2000, Jindrak and O'Haire helped form theNatural Born Thrillers with Mike Sanders, Shawn Stasiak, Chuck Palumbo, Johnny "The Bull" Stamboli, and Reno.
They were briefly "coached" by Kevin Nash.
In September 2000, Jindrak won the WCW World Tag Team Championship with O'Haire for the first time, despite being relatively new in the business.
The pair would win WCW Tag team gold one more time before splitting in early January 2001 when Jindrak would begin teaming with Stasiak instead.
The team was short lived, as Stasiak went on to pick up the managerial service of Stacy Keibler and Jindrak disappeared.
World Wrestling Entertainment (2001–2005)
After the World Wrestling Federation purchased WCW in March 2001, Jindrak came into the company in July 2001 as part of The Alliancethat invaded the WWF roster.
His debut and only televised match was on the July 28, 2001 episode of Jakked, defeating Jerry Lynn.
In late August of that year Mark Jindrak was sent to the Heartland Wrestling Association.
There he was a member of Team WCW along with Mike Sanders, Johnny The Bull, Reno, Jason Jett, Lash LaRoux, Shannon Moore, Evan Karagias, Kwee Wee, Elix Skipper and Jamie Knoble.
In October 2001 Jindrak was moved to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) for training until March 2002 when he suffered a knee injury. Jindrak returned to OVW in July 2002.
He also returned to WWE on the October 13, 2002 episode Sunday Night Heat defeating Justin Credible.
He made a few more appearances on Heat in late 2002, defeating wrestlers such as Justin Credible, Raven, Mike Owens, andStevie Richards, until Jindrak suffered another injury, this time an ankle injury.
Jindrak returned to OVW in March, 2003. He soon joinedKenny Bolin's "Bolin Services" stable and teamed with Garrison Cade.
Jindrak was soon called up by WWE. He made his Raw debut on July 7, 2003 as a face where he was defeated by Chris Jericho.
The team soon separated when Jindrak was drafted to SmackDown! on March 22, 2004.
He first appeared on SmackDown!'s sister show Velocity where he adopted a gimmick of an egotistical, narcissistic heel obsessed with his own physique (similar to Lex Luger), calling himself "The Reflection of Perfection" and standing in front of a mirror to admire himself.
On April 8, 2004 he would gain Theodore Long as a manager for a brief period until the pair split in July 2004 when Long turned face and became the general manager of SmackDown! and Jindrak remained mostly onVelocity.
In September 2004, Jindrak aligned himself with Kurt Angle and Luther Reigns, whom he helped take down and shave Big Show bald during the fifth anniversary episode of SmackDown!.
Jindrak was in the 2005 Royal Rumble match, entering at number 22, but was eliminated by Kane.
Jindrak and Reigns continued to serve as Kurt Angle's proteges and also his bodyguards until February, 2005 when Jindrak and Reigns split from Angle to continue their own feud with The Undertaker.
Jindrak continued to team with Reigns until early March, 2005. The pair began to have a falling out, most notably after Jindrak submitted to a triangle choke, losing a "Double Jeopardy" handicap match on the February 24, 2005 episode of SmackDown! in Philadelphia to The Undertaker.
The following week Jindrak and Reigns lost a tag team title match to Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio, and Jindrak turned face for the 1st time since early 2004 after getting into a fight with Reigns and knocking him out with a left hook.
The next week on SmackDown! on March 10, 2005, Jindrak defeated Reigns with that same left hook.
After this, Jindrak became a lower card star performing on WWE Velocity, and only appearing on SmackDown! to job for other wrestlers, portraying both a face and heel character. On the May 28, 2005 episode of Velocity Jindrak faced Orlando Jordan for the United States Championship, however Jindrak lost after Jordan hit him with a blackout.
On June 30, 2005, Jindrak became one of the last minute trades in the 2005 WWE Draft, which saw him jump from SmackDown! back toRaw.
Jindrak only had one match with the Raw brand, where René Duprée forced him to submit to a cobra clutch. Jindrak was released from his WWE contract shortly thereafter on July 5, 2005.
