Biography Timeline

1976

Matthew Thomas Morgan was born in Fairfield, Connecticut on September 10, 1976.

2002

Morgan was first introduced to the World Wrestling Federation when he entered as part of its Tough Enough II program but left the show early due to an injury. In April 2002, Morgan signed a developmental deal with World Wrestling Federation (WWF), and was assigned to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). He made his OVW debut on October 2, 2002, at the OVW TV Tapings as "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan teaming with Mark Jindrak, defeating Travis Bane and Lance Cade. He wrestled there sporadically (usually winning handicap matches) until October 2003 when he was called up to the SmackDown brand.

2004

After Brock Lesnar quit WWE, Morgan was written off television with an unmentioned injury and sent back to OVW for further development and experience, wrestling again as "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan and on April 14, 2004, he defeated Nick Dinsmore to become the OVW Heavyweight Champion. He held the title for almost six months before losing it to Chris Cage on October 13, 2004. Since the stipulation was that if Morgan lost he would "never show his face again" in OVW, he began wearing a mask to the ring and tweaked his name to simply The Blueprint. He would regain the OVW Heavyweight Championship on April 13, 2005, at an OVW live event after defeating Elijah Burke, but lost the title 17 days later to Brent Albright on April 30 after Albright hit Morgan with a crowbar.

Soon thereafter, Nathan Jones quit WWE, so Matt Morgan occasionally teamed with Lesnar. He teamed up with Lesnar, Big Show, and Rhyno in a four-on-two Handicap match against Chris Benoit and John Cena on the January 22, 2004, episode of SmackDown!, in a losing effort. On January 25, he competed in the 2004 Royal Rumble match, in which the winner would get a title shot against their brand's champion at WrestleMania XX; he got rid of The Hurricane but was eliminated by Chris Benoit.

2005

Morgan returned to WWE on the April 21, 2005, episode of SmackDown!, with a new gimmick as a stuttering big-man who was defensive over his speech disorder, and quickly defeated a then-unknown jobber, Brett Matthews. On the May 19 episode of Smackdown!, he allied himself with Carlito Caribbean Cool and became his "backup". Morgan helped Carlito defeat Big Show at Judgment Day, using Lesnar's former finisher, the F-5. This partnership ended when Carlito was drafted to Raw, and Morgan was subsequently released by WWE on July 5, 2005. His last match in WWE was on the July 7, episode of SmackDown! against William Regal, although technically the match never took place as Morgan was attacked by The Mexicools before Regal ever got to the ring.

Morgan toured with New Japan Pro Wrestling in late 2005, defeating Yuji Nagata in his debut match. He was being pushed as a "monster gaijin" and along with Brock Lesnar, was expected to become one of NJPW's top foreign wrestlers, but plans for this were abandoned when he decided to leave NJPW to go to All Japan Pro Wrestling. Morgan debuted in All Japan Pro Wrestling as a member of Taka Michinoku's foreigner-oriented RO&D faction. He and Mark Jindrak wrestled for HUSTLE as a tag team under the names of Sodom and Gomora.

2008

In August 2008 Morgan entered a tag team up with Abyss. The storyline was an additional chapter in the "Abyss' humanisation" storyline. Since his return to television, Abyss had portrayed an emotionally vulnerable character, exaggerating the meaning behind every gesture he received. Abyss saw Morgan as his best friend, and was desperate not to displease him. But Abyss' new sensitivity made him more naive, thus causing him to make simple errors that cost the team matches. Through time, Morgan would go from understanding to frustrated over Abyss' errors. They feuded briefly with Team 3D. The duo defeated Team 3D at No Surrender, but lost at Bound for Glory IV in a Monster's Ball match for the TNA World Tag Team Championship, which Beer Money, Inc. won. At Final Resolution when Storm hit Abyss with brass knuckles when the referee was distracted. They gained a third opportunity at the belts at Genesis in a three-way match against Beer Money, Inc. and then-champions Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed. During the match, Abyss accidentally knocked Morgan out with one of the championship belts, causing him to be pinned by Beer Money.

Morgan announced on a 2008 episode of TNA Impact! during the TNA Webography segment where TNA Superstars give an insight into their life that he has been married to his college sweetheart, a Hawaiian/Filipino woman named Larissa Vasper from Hawaii for four years. During that Webography, he also announced that when he was five, he was diagnosed with Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADD), which led to him getting involved with CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), a non-profit organization based out of Landover, Maryland.

In August 2008, it was announced that Morgan would contribute a sample of his DNA to be launched into space as part of game designer Richard Garriott's "Operation Immortality" project.

In 2008, Morgan accepted an offer to appear on the third series of American Gladiators as one of the Gladiators. Morgan, under the name Beast, made his Gladiator debut during the first night of the semifinals in the joust. He defeated each of his two opponents in less than eight seconds. On September 24, 2010, Morgan appeared on Fox television show The Good Guys, playing the role of a Russian mobster on an episode titled Vacation. In November 2010 Morgan was a contestant on an all TNA week of Family Feud, teaming with Jay Lethal, Mick Foley, Mr. Anderson and Rob Van Dam against Angelina Love, Christy Hemme, Lacey Von Erich, Tara and Velvet Sky. On June 30, 2011, Morgan was announced as being a part of the new season of CMT Made 101.

2013

Morgan made a surprise return to TNA at a house show in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on September 15, entering through the crowd in street clothes, hopping a guardrail and attacking Robbie E. The following night at another house show in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Morgan entered the ring after a match between James Storm and Jeff Hardy, delivering a Carbon Footprint to referee Brian Stiffler. The second appearance was later broadcast on the October 4 episode of Impact Wrestling, where Bruce Prichard was lecturing D'Lo Brown about the incident. Morgan returned to pay-per-view on October 14 at Bound for Glory, helping Joey Ryan defeat Al Snow to earn a TNA contract thus establishing himself as a heel. The following Impact Wrestling, Morgan explained his actions, claiming that Hulk Hogan had not delivered on his promises; Hogan in turn blamed the TNA creative about Morgan's treatment. While Morgan continued to vilify Hogan, it was insinuated that Hogan was just trying to rile him up, while secretly backing him. Morgan competed in his return match on the November 29 episode of Impact Wrestling, defeating Douglas Williams. On December 9 at Final Resolution, Morgan and Ryan unsuccessfully challenged Chavo Guerrero, Jr. and Hernandez for the TNA World Tag Team Championship, after losing to them via disqualification. Morgan and Ryan challenged Gurrero and Hernandez again on January 13, 2013, at Genesis, but were again unsuccessful in winning their titles. In March, Morgan began "cleaning up the messes" that Hulk Hogan had made, beginning with attacks on World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy and Joseph Park. The attack on Park resulted in a singles match on the March 21 episode of Impact Wrestling, where Morgan emerged victorious. On the April 25 episode of Impact Wrestling, Morgan confronted Hogan and offered his services to take out the Aces and Eights, in exchange for being named the number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary, but was firmly denied. The following week, Morgan faced Sting in a number one contenders match for the World Heavyweight Championship, which Sting won after locking Morgan in the Scorpion Deathlock and making him pass out. Morgan's last appearance for the company was on the June 13 episode of Impact Wrestling, where he was defeated by Magnus in a four-way 2013 Bound for Glory Series qualifying match, which also included Kenny King and Rob Terry. After initially asking that same month, TNA granted Morgan his release from the company on July 9.

Morgan debuted for AAA on June 16, 2013, at Triplemanía XXI, where he, Jeff Jarrett, and Monster Pain defeated AAA World Trios Champions Los Psycho Circus (Monster Clown, Murder Clown and Psycho Clown) in a non-title match.

Morgan made his first wrestling appearance since departing from TNA on August 31, 2013, at NWA Florida Underground Wrestling's Throwdown 6, defeating Kenneth Cameron.

2014

In January 2014, Morgan announced his retirement from professional wrestling full-time in order to be with his wife and new born son, as well as begin a career as a regional manager for a "big-time medical device company". Morgan has stated that while he has a great love for professional wrestling and all the opportunities it afforded him, that his biggest dream in life was to be a father and so he had to take a job that allowed him to be home every night with his son, something he unfortunately would not be able to do as a full-time wrestler.

On January 7, 2014, Morgan's wife, Larissa, gave birth to their first child, a son named Jackson.

2015

On June 24, 2015, Morgan returned to TNA as a face, after saving the returning Vader from an attack from Bram. It was soon announced that Morgan would face Bram at Slammiversary.
