Matt's Bio

Matt Whitfield was born in Newcastle upon Tyne on 30 April 1976, which he jokingly refers to as "April Genius's Day" since it stands to reason that if April 1 is April Fool's Day, the end of the month must therefore be for the geniuses. He attended West Lane School in Winlaton for his primary education and Blaydon Comprehensive for secondary school, staying on until Sixth Form and becoming Head Boy alongside fellow actor Jill Dellow who was Head Girl.

After getting through school with a handful of GCSEs and A levels in History and General Studies, Matt entered the world of work at age 18 at B.T, where he spent several years in customer service. Whilst attaining his Law Degree in 2013, he had transferred to HR where he employed both his newly found law knowledge and his considerable computer skills to great effect.

In the mid 2000's Matt took up wrestling training, first with the FWA in Portsmouth where he got a taste for the sport and then closer to home in Newcastle with WZW, crediting head trainer Dave Carbon with drilling the basics into him which allowed him to further his training with the XWA in Morecambe and becoming Stallion. Sadly, an injury cut short a promising wrestling career but XWA owner and well known British wrestling veteran Greg Lambert wanted to keep him on as a manager for Rockstar Spud (Drake Maverick in WWE) and his entourage that included one half of the NXT and WWE tag team the Grizzled Young Veterans, James Drake. Matt took Stallion from the manager's role to the broadcasting booth where he would provide analysis to the shows and matches for DVD releases. Sadly, the XWA closed it's doors in 2012 and Stallion took a little hiatus, which tied in with his law studies.

In 2013 he was approached by PCW promoter Steven Fludder to partner his old boss Greg Lambert on commentary, a very successful partnership which has lasted more than a decade and has commentated on so many UK and international stars. Greg and Stallion have provided commentary on some historical events such as the first ever UK wrestling PPV and the first ever Pride wrestling show in the UK, an accomplishment of which he is very proud.

In 2017 Matt added another dimension to the Stallion character by showing up to a TV show with the "Pro Wrestling Commentary Championship", a title he claims to have won in a tournament in Rio de Janeiro. The fine looking title belt is gold plates on a blue leather strap.

Although he has on occasion been an active wrestler in his career, he is semi retired and will only agree to wrestle if it elevates someone else or furthers a story on the show,otherwise he is more than happy to share his wit and knowledge from under the broadcasting headset.

Outside of wrestling Matt was always a keen actor and in 2021 saw the opportunity to take up acting and he enrolled with Mark Pegg's Acting Academy. In his amateur days Matt had starred in productions of Blood Brothers, Stags and Hens, A Slice of Saturday Night as well as Jack and the Beanstalk.

Outside of work Matt and his partner Danni enjoy a good pub crawl with their dog Mya who is way more better known, and far more well liked, than him in the bars of South Shields.

Matt built his own PC during lockdown, enjoys Sci-Fi and Fantasy such as Star Trek, The Witcher and Warhammer, reading Terry Pratchett, Robert Rankin and Arthur Conan Doyle, when he gets the time, watching Newcastle United on the telly.

Sooooo...to sum up; built own PC, enjoys The Witcher, Warhammer and Sherlock Holmes AND looks good in spandex...chyeahhhhh, he's just a more rugged Henry Cavill!!!
