Matthew Jason "Matt" Bloom (born November 14, 1972) is an American professional wrestler signed to WWE under the ring name Tensai (formerly Lord Tensai). Between 1997 and 2004, Bloom wrestled for World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment under the ring names Prince Albert, Albert, and A-Train. During his time in the promotion, he became a one time Intercontinental Champion. After leaving WWE, Bloom (adopting the ring name Giant Bernard) began wrestling extensively in Japan, where he was a three-time tag team champion. He held New Japan Pro Wrestling's IWGP Tag Team Championship twice (holding the record for both the longest reign and the most title defenses alongside Karl Anderson as Bad Intentions during his second reign), and the GHC Tag Team Championship in Pro Wrestling Noah once (also with Anderson at the same time as his second IWGP reign).
Famous quotes containing the words bloom and/or matt:
“Ye banks and braes o bonnie Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae weary fu o care?
Thoult break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro the flowering thorn:
Thou minds me o departed joys,
Departed never to return.”
—Robert Burns (17591796)
“Hey, you dress up our town very nicely. You dont look out the Chamber of Commerce is going to list you in their publicity with the local attractions.”
