Wrestling Career

New Zealand

Before comming to North America, Matt wrestled in his home land of New Zealand starting at the age of 16, Quickly becomming the greatest high flyer in the countrys history and taking the NZWF and IPW X Divsion title's and holding them both for a un-precedented 23 and a half months before vacating it due to an injury (Broken Shoulder) When he returned he set his sights on the NZWF Heavyweight Champion and with the extra training he recived while he was injured, He disposed of the champ after a short fued and making him tap to his own "Sheeptamer" finishing submission move, At the very next event, He make a touching farewell speech about how he was gratefull of what this country and federation has done for him and that he was vacating the belt and going to North America to lern a better grappling move set and to try and catch the famed "Big Break" He left the arena that night to chants of "Thank You Matt" and knew that North America was waiting and his journey had only begun...

North America

Pro Wrestling Xtreme

When Matt landed in the states he got a call from the WrestleView Wrestling Federation asking him to come and be in the devlopmental federation known as PWX Suprised that such a high profile federation had called and offered a contract, Matt accepted on the spot and headed to the arena they where going to be brodcast from to be be told he would be competing against Donn E. Carter on the very first Breakdown for the PWX World Championship And as he said it himself, He's being thrown in the "deap end" by this move and he thinks its the only way to know if he's cut out for the North American Wrestling Busness... At Breakdown I, Matt won the PWX World Championship in a dusty double finish against Donn E. Carter who won the match but GM "Randy Jay" Re-Started the match this time Matt was the victor hitting Donn with a M-9 from the top rope for the win, At Breakdown II Matt will face Julietta Lee and Randy Jay's Mystery Man tagging with long time tag team partner Matt Van Dam, The only way for Smith to ose the title is if Lee or the mystery man pin him, At Breakdown II, Alex Williams had turned out to be the mystery man and when it was all said and done, Smith pinned Alex after a M-9 for the 3, While MvD hit a through the ropes Gore on Julietta Lee to keep her from breaking up the count, The next event he will take part in is PWX Blakout from his hometown of Auckland. New Zealand, He will face Nick Stahl in a non-title match in the main event of the show. The match ended in a DQ win for Smith when Julietta Lee, Alex Williams and Donn E. Carter beat him and Matt Van Dam down, The next week Smith tryed to push MvD into siging with PWX to get revenge on them, MvD replyed simply...."NO!" Knocking him over the head with the PWX Xtreme title and laying a beatdown on him before vacating the Xtreme title and leaving PWX for the WVWF, A Match between the two is in the works.
