Matthew "Matt" Rehwoldt (October 7, 1987) is an American professional wrestler. He is signed to WWE, where he performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Aiden English. He was formerly on WWE NXT as a former NXT Tag Team Champion along with Simon Gotch, who are collectively known as The Vaudevillains.

Early life

Rehwoldt was born in Chicago, where he developed an interest in acting at an early age. By the age of 20, he had appeared in over 20 stage productions. After graduating from Lyons Township High School, Rehwoldt studied acting (with a focus on stage combat) at Columbia College Chicago, graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts.

Professional wrestling career

Early career (2011–2012)

After graduating from college, Rehwoldt trained as a professional wrestler. He debuted on the Illinoisan independent circuit in late 2011 under the ring name "Matt Marquee". Rehwoldt wrestled for promotions such as Chicago Style Wrestling, where he formed a tag team named "The Ryte Stuff" with Barry Ryte.


Developmental territories (2012–2016)

In early 2012, Rehwoldt signed a contract with WWE. He was assigned to its developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling and given the ring name "Aiden English". English made his televised debut on the April 8, 2012 episode of FCW TV, teaming with Audrey Marie in an inter-gender tag team match against Rick Victor and Paige.

In mid-2012, WWE rebranded FCW as WWE NXT. English's television debut took place on the second episode of the rebooted NXT Wrestling taped at Full Sail University, where he was defeated by Leo Kruger. Throughout the year, English was used as a jobber, losing to the likes of Bray Wyatt, Ryback and Big E Langston. In his first match in 2013, on the May 29 episode of NXT Wrestling, English competed in a battle royal to determine the number one contender for the NXT Championship but was eliminated by Mason Ryan. English scored his first win on the September 18 episode of NXT Wrestling, defeating Michael Q. Laurie. A week later, on the September 25 episode of NXT Wrestling, English sang a parody version of the Major-General's Song from the musical The Pirates of Penzance while approaching the ring. English subsequently began singing before, during and after his matches. Throughout the year, English scored a couple of wins over the likes of Jason Jordan and Camacho. In the beginning of 2014, English began a feud with Colin Cassady, losing to him on the January 1 episode of NXT Wrestling in a sing off but later defeating him in several matches.

In June 2014, English formed a tag team with Simon Gotch, known as The Vaudevillains. The Vaudevillains made their in-ring debut as a team on the June 19 episode, defeating Angelo Dawkins and Travis Tyler. In August, The Vaudevillains participated in a tournament to determine the number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team Championship, before losing to The Lucha Dragons (Sin Cara and Kalisto) in the final. On the October 30 episode of NXT, The Vaudevillains won a tag team battle royal to become the number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team Championship. They received their title match at NXT TakeOver: R Evolution against The Lucha Dragons, but were unsuccessful. After some hiatus, The Vaudevillians returned on the June 3, 2015 episode of NXT, defeating Jason Jordan and Marcus Louis. On the July 8 episode of NXT, The Vaudevillians defeated Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady to become the number one contenders to the NXT Tag Team Championship. The Vaudevillians received their title match on the July 29 episode of NXT, in which they were unsuccessful. The Vaudevillians would go on to defeat Blake and Murphy in a rematch at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn to win the NXT Tag Team Championship.

Main roster (2016–present)

On the April 7, 2016 episode of SmackDown, the Vaudevillains made their main roster debut as heels, defeating The Lucha Dragons.

Personal life

In December 2014, Rehwoldt became engaged to former professional wrestler Shaul Guerrero, the daughter of Vickie Guerrero and the late Eddie Guerrero
