The Beginning/PPW

Matt Bloom began his wrestling career training with Killer Kowalski, who saw potential in Bloom's size and physique. Bloom began his training as the Mongolian, debuting in 1997 as a powerhouse. In only a short time, Bloom's talents got him noticed by the World Wrestling Federation, and he was signed to a developmental contract, wrestling with Power Pro Wrestling. Creative thinking utilized Bloom's look to create his character, calling him "Baldo". With his patented Baldo Bomb, Bloom quickly showed why he was a favored wrestler, taking out Lance Cade in January '99 to win the PPW Young Guns Title. If this wasn't enough, Baldo fought his way through a tournament in the same month, beating Jerry Lawler in the final match to become the first PPW Heavyweight Champion. Baldo stayed a competitive champion for the next few months, and only lost the Heavyweight Title in March in a tag-team match to Michael Hayes.

WWF: 1999

In the summer of 1999, Prince Albert (named after a male genital piercing) made his debut in the WWF, walking in as the personal tattoo artist of Darren Drozdov. At first, Albert worked like a valet, aiding Droz in his matches by using his steel piercing case to knock out opponents. Soon, though, Albert formed a strong tag-team with Droz, having a memorable feud with Val Venis & the Godfather. At one point, Albert knocked Venis cold, then pierced his nose, trying to take away some of Venis' sex appeal with the ladies. Venis later got revenge, though, tattooing his initials into Albert's backside. Prince Albert & Droz competed against several tag-teams as the year wore on, and were strong contenders in the Tag-Team Elimination Match at Summerslam '99, but were eliminated by Edge & Christian.

Just as it seemed that their tag-team could take off, however, things went horribly wrong. In a match in October against D'Lo Brown, Darren Drozdov was badly injured when Brown slipped on a powerbomb attempt. Drozdov became paralyzed from the blow, which ended his wrestling career. Having lost his tag-team partner, Prince Albert sought out another ally, this time joining up with the Big Boss Man against the force of the Big Show. On several occassions, Albert helped the Boss Man retain the Hardcore Title. proving his worth. At the '99 Survivor Series, Albert joined the Boss Man, Mideon, & Viscera in a "Handicap Elimination" Match against the Big Show. The plan didn't work out as planned, though, as the Big Show quickly eliminated Albert, Mideon, & Viscera within a minute, before the Boss Man ran away from the Big Show's rage.

Soon after the debacle of the Survivor Series, problems began building between Albert and the Boss Man. When Albert mistakenly cost the Boss Man a match, the Boss Man turned on him, beating Albert down. This later backfired on the Boss Man, though, as Albert helped Test win the Hardcore Title away from him. The feud between the two men fizzled, though, as the Boss Man proclaimed that he respected Albert more than ever. The two teamed up again together for a while, but the Boss Man eventually found himself another partner in Bull Buchanan (at least for a time), again leaving Albert fending for himself in the WWF.


Albert wrestled for a time on his own, showcasing his unbelievable strength, but not making any progress towards heavyweight gold. He did, however, attract the attention of Trish Stratus, who was looking to form herself a tag-team. Albert soon debuted with Test as Stratus' team, T & A. The team made an impressive start by taking down Al Snow & Steve Blackman at Wrestlemania '00, and continued to gain momentum with feuds against the Dudley Boyz, the Hardy Boyz, and the APA, just to name a few. At one point, T & A & Stratus were scheduled to take on Lita & the APA at No Mercy '00, but the match never went down, as T & A assaulted the APA in the backstage area, dropping a file cabinet on Bradshaw and injuring Faarooq's knee.

After the brutual beating, Test & Albert took over the APA's items, calling themselves T & APA for the next few months as they feuded with the Hollys. At Armageddon '00, after Molly Holly won a Women's Title Triangle Match over Trish Stratus (and Ivory), T & A came out to get some revenge for their manager, grabbing Molly. Crash Holly then ran out to help his sister, apparently challenging both members of T & A. But before T & A can do anything, the APA's music played, and Farooq & Bradshaw made their return, quickly taking care of both Test and Albert. Not long afterwards, Albert turned on Test during a match-up at the end of 2000, with Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley looking on, and began looking for another tag-team to join up with.


It didn't take long for Albert to find another group to join, as he united with Justin Credible & X-Pac as X-Factor. However, Albert was not one of the featured wrestlers of the stable, as he routinely was there just to help X-Pac & Credible win their matches. At Backlash '01, Albert's power was a major factor in X-Factor's victory over the Dudley Boyz. Albert was also a major contributor in the Tag-Team Turmoil Match at Judgment Day '01, as he helped X-Pac & Credible gain victories over the APA and the Hardy Boyz. Unfortunately, Albert couldn't do enough to help his partners get past Chris Jericho & Chris Benoit, who went on to win the #1 Contenders spot for the tag-team titles. X-Factor never really gained any momentum after the match, and eventually split up.

In June '01, the remnants of World Championship Wrestling began their "Invasion" of the WWF. In a way, this helped Albert gain the biggest honor of his WWF career. Albert was given an Intercontinental Title shot against Kane on a Smackdown show. With Kane in control of the match, Diamond Dallas Page, who had been feuding with both Kane & the Undertaker at this point, interfered, helping Albert upset Kane and win the Intercontinental strap! Albert proudly defended the belt for the next few weeks, taking on some serious challenges to his title. Albert also joined with the rest of the WWF in fighting against the WCW invasion. Ironically, the event that gained him the title eventually cost him the belt, as Albert was beaten by WCW wrestler Lance Storm.

As the Invasion continued, Albert became a popular wrestler, joining up with Scotty Too Hotty and becoming known for his antics in the ring. Earning the nickname, the "Hip Hop Hippo", Albert & Scotty danced together after matches and basically had a good time in the ring. At Vengeance '01, the duo also proved that they were a good tag-team, as they defeated Test & Christian in impressive fashion, with Albert getting the pinfall after a Baldo Bomb on Christian. This impressed the Booking Committee enough that Albert & Scotty were given a title shot against the Dudley Boyz. Although they lost the match, Albert had a very memorable lock-up with Stacey Keibler, giving her a long kiss on the mouth.


Throughout the beginning of 2002, Albert continued to team with Scotty Too Hotty, as well as occassionally with Scotty's pal, Rikishi. At No Way Out '02, Albert & Scotty competed in the Tag-Team Turmoil match, being one of the first teams out. Their time in the match didn't last long, though, as Christian & Lance Storm eliminated them after Christian hit the Unprettier on Scotty. The APA eventually won the Turmoil match. Albert & Scotty then went back to being a mid-card tag-team, rarely getting a shot at the gold. The duo managed one more push, getting a title shot against Billy & Chuch in April '02. When Scotty was taken out and pinned, however, Albert lost it, destroying Scotty and breaking up their tag-team, immediately becoming a heel again.

WWE Smackdown: 2002

Albert's turn did not lead to a great deal of success for the big man, however, as he rarely was given any time on WWE pay-per-views over the majority of what was left of 2002. Albert was even loaned out to WWA in August, where he teamed up with Tim McNeany in several matches. Despite his power, Albert's character had lost all respect from the audience due to his "Hip-Hop Hippo" run. Albert even lost a "Kiss My Ass" Match to Rikishi at the British pay-per-view, Rebellion '02. A change was definitely required to restore the man's potential.

In December '02, Albert began his first sustained push in quite a while, as he destroyed Rey Mysterio Jr in a Smackdown match-up. After winning the match, Albert continued to attack Mysterio, badly injuring the cruiserweight's knee. The violence was noticed by Paul Heyman, who recruited Albert to join up with the Big Show as a powerhouse duo. Heyman renamed Albert, calling him the "A-Train" and promising him big things in WWE. A-Train immediately went into a feud with Edge, who was best friends with Mysterio at the time. The two faced off at Armageddon '02 in a brawl, which ended when A-Train grabbed a chair and slammed it into Edge's leg, causing the DQ. Edge got the last laugh, though, dropkicking the chair into A-Train's face, then taking the chair and hitting him repeatedly before leaving.


Going into 2003, A-Train began aiding his ally, the Big Show, in his fight against Brock Lesnar, whom Big Show had defeated to gain the Heavyweight Title. A few weeks into January, A-Train & the Big Show were scheduled to face Lesnar and an unknown opponent. That opponent turned out to be a returning Rey Mysterio Jr, who with Lesnar, defeated the heels in less than a minute! A-Train faced Mysterio in a singles match later on that month, with A-Train again managing the victory over the cruiserweight. A-Train continued to side with the Big Show for the next few months, but was unable to stop the Big Show from losing the Heavyweight Title to Kurt Angle despite his interference, due to Lesnar's intervention.

A-Train & the Big Show eventually began feuding with the Undertaker and his 'trainee', Nathan Jones. The feud had actually begun months before, when the Big Show had tossed the Undertaker off the stage of a show, injuring him. A-Train continued to help the Big Show in his battles, and the four men signed up for a tag-team match at Wrestlemania XIX. However, before the match, A-Train & the Big Show attacked Nathan Jones, taking him out and making it a handicap match. But A-Train & the Big Show couldn't put the Undertaker away, and when Jones came down the aisle and took out the Big Show, the Undertaker put A-Train away with his Tombstone Piledriver.

The A-Train mainly worked on his own after this humiliating defeat, although he still occassionally teamed with the Big Show. A-Train competed in the #1 Contender Tournament in April '03, where he lost in the first round to Chris Benoit. A-Train also had an impact at Vengeance '03, where he helped Sable (Vince McMahon's girl at the time) defeat Stephanie McMahon (who was the general manager of Smackdown). A-Train gave a vicious clothesline to McMahon to help Sable get the pin. A-Train continued to be a threat to Stephanie McMahon, but the Undertaker came to her rescue, setting up a match between A-Train and the Undertaker at Summerslam '03. Unfortunately, even with Sable at his side, A-Train had no better luck against the Dead Man, losing to a chokeslam. After the match, Sable tried to seduce the Undertaker, only to have him hold Sable until Stephanie McMahon could come out to beat her up. A-Train pulled Sable from the ring after a short beating and headed to the back.

After Summerslam, A-Train had a match against Chris Benoit, in which A-Train supposedly tapped out to the Crossface, although his legs were in the ropes. A-Train later claimed that Benoit couldn't beat him one-on-one, and the two continued to feud for the next couple of months. In several matches, the two men exchanged pinfalls, including A-Train pinning Benoit in a 6-Man Tag Match (involving the Basham Brothers and the APA). The two met at No Mercy '03, a match-up of strength vs. technical skill. A-Train dominated for a good portion of the bout, using his power to toss Benoit around. A steel chair also served as a good weapon for A-Train. But in the end, in a semi-tribute to the recently deceased Stu Hart, Benoit won the match with the Sharpshooter, forcing A-Train to tap out.

A-Train continued to feud on and off with Benoit over the next few weeks, teaming with John Cena in a series of matches against Benoit & Kurt Angle. After one such tag match, Paul Heyman & Brock Lesnar came out with their Survivor Series team, consisting of the Big Show, Matt Morgan, & Nathan Jones (who had gone heel). Heyman & Lesnar offered the final spot on their team to Cena, who they believed would help their team to victory. Cena turned down the spot, though, surprising many, and instead rapped about how stupid their team was. Cena was attacked from behind, though, by the A-Train, taking him apart. A-Train then later accepted Heyman's invitation and joined up with the team.

At the '03 Survivor Series, A-Train's team faced off against Team Angle, which consisted of Kurt Angle, John Cena, Chris Benoit, Hardcore Holly, & Bradshaw. Surprisingly enough, the eliminations at the beginning of the match were fast and furious, as Hardcore Holly was DQ'ed, followed by A-Train being knocked out by Bradshaw's Clothesline From Hell and being pinned. A-Train then could only watch for the rest of the match, having barely even competed in it. Eventually, Benoit & Cena were the sole survivors, giving another pay-per-view loss to the A-Train for the year.

The rest of 2003 went just as bad for A-Train. At one point, he bet with the FBI that Benoit would defeat Lesnar for the World Title (Lesnar won), earning him the anger of Lesnar. When A-Train tried to regain his respect by facing Shannon Moore, A-Train was upset by the young cruiserweight. After the match, Matt Morgan & the Big Show attacked A-Train, beating him down due to his mistakes. But the problems continued, as A-Train & Matt Morgan lost to a badly beaten Shannon Moore (who had already been brutalized in a match with Lesnar) & Hardcore Holly, which allowed Holly to be reinstated to active competition and giving him the shot against Lesnar at the Royal Rumble.

WWE Raw: 2004

Going into the new year, A-Train tried to turn things around, winning a Royal Rumble Qualifying match over Shannon Moore. A-Train entered the '04 Royal Rumble as the #16 entrant, putting him in the second half of contenders. However, this didn't make a difference, as A-Train did not eliminate a single individual, and was tossed out barely a minute in by the eventual winner, Chris Benoit. A-Train then fell back to low-mid-card status for the next few months on Smackdown, wrestling only an occassional match. In March '04, A-Train was traded to Raw, to try and help his career rebound. Unfortunately, after only a few months of competition there, A-Train tore his rotator cuff, taking him out of action. He was slated to return to action by the end of '04. However, that didn't happen, as A-Train was one of the casualities of the mass WWE cuts in November '04.

Japan: 2005

A-Train soon followed many of his former WWE teammates overseas, where a strong market of fans awaited him. Due to copyright regulations with WWE, A-Train changed his name, becoming the Giant Bernard. Bernard wrestled in several different federations, including Wrestle-1 and All Japan Pro Wrestling, where Bernard began teaming with Taru in the '05 AJPW Real World Tag-Team League. Unfortunately for Bernard & Taru, they couldn't stop the momentum of Team 3-D (formerly known as the Dudley Boyz), who won the tournament. Bernard finished out the year in Japan, rebuilding his wrestling career.


Giant Bernard began wrestling in New Japan Pro Wrestling at the beginning of the year, appearing at the January 4th Tokyo Dome show. He wrestled against another famous Japanese wrestler, Manabu Nakanishi, with Giant Bernard getting the victory. The two wrestlers later began teaming together, taking on the IWGP Tag-Team Champions, Masa Chono & Hiroyoshi Tenzan, at the February '06 Sumo Hall show. Unfortunately, Bernard & Nakanishi came up short, as Chono got the pin on Nakinishi, retaining the titles. Giant Bernard continued to work on getting over in New Japan, though, over the next month, getting a big win in March at another Sumo Hall show by pinning Scott Norton.

Giant Bernard's biggest push in the company, though, seemed to start in April '06, as he was entered into the New Japan Cup Tournament. Giant Bernard used all his skills and strength to work his way up the tournament, defeating Toru Yano, Riki Choshu, and Manabu Nakanishi to reach the finals at the end of April against Yuji Nagata. After a furious match between the two men, Giant Bernard finally managed to land his Bernard Driver, pinning Nagata to win the New Japan Cup. With the win, Bernard earned a title shot against a fellow American, Brock Lesnar. Bernard, now a Japanese fan favorite, vowed to the fans that he would bring the title back to New Japan.
