Latest Update On A-Train Returning To WWE, To Feud With Top Star?

Matthew Bloom, who previously wrestled as Prince Albert, Albert and A-Train for WWE, denied on Twitter on Saturday that he has signed a contract to return to the promotion after WrestleMania XXVIII as he will be appearing for New Japan Pro Wrestling on their next tour. He also said that he does not know how the rumor got started, calling it “comical.” Regarding the rumor, four WWE sources have said within the past week that he is returning to the organization, with one saying it has been assumed for two months that is was happening. Furthermore, numerous WWE performers were talking about his pending return at Friday’s live event in Montreal, Quebec, Canada after being informed by management of the news.

A source close to creative says he is set for “a big push” upon his return to WWE programming in April as a villainous henchman for Raw Interim General Manager and Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis. reported that there has been talk of Bloom feuding with John Cena since the Raw Superstar does not have a post-WrestleMania XXVIII program in place at the moment. However, the note of Bloom possibly feuding with Cena has since been deleted.

Bloom, who will turn 40 years old in November, previously competed for WWE from 1999 to 2004 as a mid-card wrestler. He tore his rotator cuff in June 2004 and was released from his contract before returning from the injury. He would go on to achieve greater success in Japan as Giant Bernard in a tag team partnership with Karl Anderson.

    Underrated in every facet of the business. Hopefully gets a warm welcome back.

  • shawn

    hell yeah. hopefully hed be welcomed aboard.

  • Jason

    Albert is welcome in TNA any time!

  • D2K

    The sad part is that if this rumor is true that means Laryngitis will continue to stick around. :/

  • scooter

    I like A-train but he shouldn’t feud with cena right away although I agree team laurenitas feuding with cena would be cool. Personally I think christian and Cena would be an amazing feud!

  • me

    sorry, don’t care about albert, was never anything special on the mic nor in the ring, don’t care.

  • angel z

    it does look like team raw manager will win at mania. it is obvious.

  • hbk fan

    @ Bill

    Like the WWE creative would remember that. They only used Punk’s history with Randy because he went to them and said “Use this”. They ignore history over 6 months old most of the time. Hell, im suprised they used what they did for Randy vs Kane.

  • heyfit

    Bring back A-Train, Tyson Tomko & Gene Snitsky, VINCE!

    Especially SNITSKY since he is awesome.
    but don’t make him bald. He looked like a big ugly baby in black underwear bald.

    This means no heel turn for Cena at mania…

    I shouldve known it was just wishful thinking…

  • Bill

    That sounds pretty awesome! It’d make some sense if he feuded with Cena, since they have history from the Team Lesnar vs. Team Angle feud in 2003. I’d love to see some different faces on TV. WWE’s main event roster has essentially been the same since 2006/2007.

  • Jon-Jon

    If A-Train can beat Cena, then how are we supposed to believe Cena can beat Rock?

  • Effmenow

    It would be funny if Lesnar came back on the same day A Train debuts and gave him an F5…

  • Second City Saints

    A-Train wouldnt beat Cena cause cena doesent lose

  • dave

    Hope A TRAIN gets a good run.
