Early life

Danielson was born in Brooklyn, New York on July 28th, 1982. He has 4 brothers, Brandon, Dante, Michael and Matthew and his sister, Joanne. His father was a businessman and his mother a computer engineer. Matt worked retail to raise money for his dream of attending wrestling school. From there he caught the attention of various independent promotions where he would get his in ring start.


In December 2007, Daniels performed at the now defunct, All Wrestling Alliance, where he performed as Captain Cage. He was noticed by Mr. DEDEDE who ended up offering him a contract with EAW and by January 1st, 2008 he was officially a member of the roster.

Charisma's first match on EAW Showdown was against The Book of Wrestling in an Ultimate Tables match in which he lost with a score of 3-2. Charisma went on to win the Hardcore Championship on the next show, marking the first reign of many.

EAW Hardcore Championship

After losing to Book of Wrestling, The Rated R Shaman of Sexy went to defeat Chico to go on to face Book of Wrestling for the Hardcore championship. Charisma interfered in the match and won the hardcore championship due to the "24/7 rule" placed upon it. He made history by becoming the first Hardcore champion in EAW. After Charisma's first title defense against Shaman, BOW and Chico, Dynasty's The Game defeated Captain Charisma after the match to capture the title. Charisma later on won it back at EAW Dynasty vs Showdown where he Unprettiered Shaman, got Game to pin Shaman and got a match right after for the hardcore in which he won to become the first ever multiple time champ in EAW history. Next Showdown, MVP and his henchmen attacked Charisma and won his hardcore title from him. Later on that night, Charisma won it back to become 3 Time Hardcore champion. Next Showdown, Charisma lost it to Shaman of Sexy in a Fatal Four Way Glass Walls match. A few weeks later, Charisma won it back again by attacking Shaman and forming an alliance with MVP, his henchmen, Shaman's girlfriend SKO and The Virus(Tyler, Brandon, & Carlos). The feud was supposed to culminate at Pain for Pride when Captain Charisma faced Shaman. At the event Shaman won the championship back. However, next Showdown, Charisma beat Shaman for the championship thus making history again and becoming 5 time hardcore champion. He also won Sabina's contract and got a triple threat match against Masters and Shaman for the EAW Hardcore and World Championship along with SKO's contract. He wound up losing after Mr. DEDEDE interfered and won the match thus giving the demise of the EAW Hardcore championship.
