WWE Signs Former IC Champion, Returning After WrestleMania
WWE has signed Matt Bloom, 39, to a contract to return to the organization as a performer. He previously worked for WWE from 1999 to 2004 as Albert and A-Train, which included a brief reign as Intercontinental Champion.
Bloom has achieved great success in Japan since parting ways with WWE, having won the IWGP Tag Team Championship with Karl Anderson on two occasions (they hold the record for the longest reign and the most defenses). They were also Tag Team Champions in Pro Wrestling NOAH.
He is scheduled to return as a henchman in April for Raw Interim General Manager and WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis.
