Matthew Taylor is the son of a wealthy businessman. He and his sister were both expected to follow the family tradition and run the company but Matthew had other dreams to chase; being a wrestler. He was the childhood friend of professional wrestler Glory Braddock. They grew up together and went to high school together. They even trained together for a brief period of time in Glenn Braddock’s own training facility but Matthew quickly got bored with the Greco-Roman style Glenn was teaching so he quit the school and sought out trainers who would eventually train him in a more high risk, high energy daredevil style of wrestling. To further distance himself from his wealthy family he all but refused to accept their monetary and financial aid, intentionally living like a pauper, and even chose to wrestle under a different surname so he would not be associated with them. In the ring he is not Matthew Taylor, the wealthy kid, he is daredevil Matthew Bowden.

Initially Matthew tried to wrestle without any care in the world about winning. He cared about entertaining the crowd and getting ratings. He cared about being a showman and a show off. He was popular for the first couple of years but he quickly became disenchanted as more and more promotions would not book him. He took a break from full time active wrestling and attempted to reconnect with his sister, Francis Taylor, and the family business. He felt strange in the business world, as if he didn’t really belong. The call of wrestling was still there, but he didn’t feel as if he would ever be accepted there, either. Then he learned of his best friend Glory Braddock’s desire to become SCW World Tag Team Champions and achieve Supreme Championship Status. Matthew knew that this was his way back into wrestling. After reconnecting with his friend, and after a lot of convincing, he managed to talk her into letting him give it a go. Glory and Matthew are back together as a tag team.

Note: He’s fun loving, has a quick wit, and is a bit of a prankster. He’s usually very fun to be around. It’s hard not to like him, unless you’re the butt of one of his pranks/jokes.
