Cieleski earned his undergraduate degree in criminology at Slippery Rock University in 2004. He began his career wrestling at 149 lbs for the Rock and over the course of three years, Cieleski racked up two NCAA Division I East Regional Championship titles and was a two-time Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Champion.
