History

Early life

For most of his life, Lloyd Matthews, never even heard of wrestling. He was sheltered for most of his life and was usually more focused on studying than watching Television. A lot of his teachers and fellow peers have described him as: Intelligent, bright, quick on the draw, and usually good natured. Though as good as he might have seem, a lot of his peers also saw him as: Arrogant, closed minded, and unreasonably controlling. Even though growing up in a relatively quite neighborhood, his parents were fairly protective of him. He never really knew too much about the outside world, and anytime he asked his parents would just brush it off as dangerous. It was that way for most of his life until he headed off to college, where his parents could no longer hide him.

Introduction into the Wrestling World

During his third year in the University of Minnesota, Lloyd Matthews, spent a lot of time “trying to catch up with the world,” he says in a later interview, “It was like learning about an entire new world.” During these times of experimentation he found about something that would change his life forever, Wrestling. His friend had a Pay-Per-View on, and Lloyd Matthews was obsessed with it sense then. He eventually finished up his time in college with a Degree in “Language Arts”. Though instead of using his degree he decides to pursue a career in wrestling.

Lloyd Matthew found it difficult to actually make his way into the business. He trained for months trying to prepare for his first match in the ring. He studied tapes, went to several trainers, and constantly went to wrestling events. He kept trying and trying, and eventually his training paid off. His debut came around in a little independent show in Minnesota, and he left with his first win. From then on he moved through the ranks and kept trying to better himself. Even though he considered himself the crowd favorite, the crowd has never given him a good reaction.

Hybrid Championship Wrestling (2008-2009)

Unfortunately, it was also a short title reign, lasting only 34 days to The Masked Marvel at the November 23rd Pay-Per-View Infamy. Though his lost was not in vain, for he won in back November 17, 2008 at Monday Night Onslaught. He holding that title making it a total 6 weeks as Television Champion.
