Current Vivianverse Leagues
Rookie Year in DCO (2010-present)
Before DCO started, Eichorn made appearances in WEDF. On RAW Episode 56, Matt Eichorn came out to help fight off Dolph Ziggler and would later pin his Damage Gauge partner Suspect and claim the WEDF Hardcore Championship. Although this looked like a backstabbing it was all a clever plan to hand the title over since Suspect was going for the Intercontinental Title and did not want any further distractions. Eichorn would then join the Development CAW show. On the first show, The Damage Gauge would defeat The YGO (a faction that Eichorn use to be apart of), winning the DCO Tag Team Championships. Eichorn would become a double champion. But he would soon drop both titles, as he would lose the Tag Team Titles to the Next Big Things (Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley), and the Hardcore Championship to Larry It. However, Eichorn would regain his Hardcore title, defeating Larry It. Mason Kronik would then challenge Eichorn for the Championship. However, this match never happened because of Val Venis defeating Eichorn for the championship on an edition of WEDF United. Notably during this reign, Eichorn had a title defense over DCO General Manager Machojef. On an episode of Flame, The Damage Gauge would lose in a #1 Contender's match to determine the next team that would face The Next Big Deal to The New Breed (Elijah Burke and Zack Ryder).On DCO, the Damage Gauge addressed the audience talking about how they would continue to remain a tag team and that Suspect was a fighting champion willing to defend his title anytime and anywhere. Matt Eichorn would later be assaulted by CJ Wizard leading to a match in which if Matt Eichorn lost, CJ Wizard would face Suspect for the DCO Title on Episode 5.Matt Eichorn would have this match in control but anger on the side of Suspect caused a DQ loss. On DCO Episode 5, Matt Eichorn betrayed his partner Suspect and turned heel costing him the DCO World Heavyweight Championship. Matt Eichorn joined with Oshujax and formed a team known as the Platinum Age and helped Oshujax capture the DCO World Heavyweight Championship on DCO Episode 6. A pre-match assault by Platinum Age later cost Suspect his Intercontinental Championship on WEDF Saturday Morning's Main Event.
Following Saturday Morning's Main Event, Suspect challenged Eichorn to a match for WEDF Rasslemania, which Eichorn had "accepted" despite him supposedly not being in the arena. Having Oshujax relay the message to Suspect allowed Eichorn to take advantage of Suspect and add in the stipulation that if Eichorn won, the Platinum Age could move up anytime they wanted to the WEDF's Main Roster. On DCO Episode 7, Eichorn and Oshujax commentated, and also defeated CJ Wizard in a handicap match after attacking Rick The Fisherman before the match and leaving him unable to compete. Thanks to Oshujax's interference at Rasslemania, Eichorn would defeat Suspect and thus make Platinum Age the first two DCO Superstars with the ability to move up to the main roster.
Brief Run on Smackdown
Matt Eichorn and Oshujax would wreak havoc for months on Smackdown, and added two new members to the group in Dolph Ziggler and Zach Starr. The duo would help Dolph Ziggler win the Intercontinental Championship as well. Tension started to come out between Oshujax and Matt Eichorn, as Matt was getting fed up with the direction he was going with his career. He had decided to leave Platinum Age and move to RAW to pursue singles competition as Eichorn felt he was not reaching his full potential.
Domination on Raw
Eichorn on his first night on Raw defeated Vito in singles competition. Eichorn was not too happy with who he had faced and demanded he be put in the Money in the Bank qualifying match on the next RAW. Eichorn once again was victorious, defeating Batista and Tyson Kidd in a triple threat match to qualify for Money in the Bank for WEDF Fate of Champions. He then changed his stance to tag teams claiming they were unnecessary and a sign of weakness. This was first evident when he screwed over his own tag team partner Suspect allowing Evan Bourne and Paul London to pick up the victory. Armando Estrada was annoyed that Team Raw didn't win and later turned out to be a racist, which led Armando to kill 15 babies at a local hospital. Estrada with the help of Kane would attack Eichorn and ridicule him at Raw Episode 115. At WEDF Bragging Rights II, Eichorn retained his TV title against Alberto Del Rio. The match had a stipulation that if Eichorn had lost he would have been fired. At WEDF Survivor Series, Eichorn defeated Armando Estrada in a Steel Cage Match. The Match had a stipulation that because Estrada lost, he was fired. Soon Eichorn would lose the Television championship to The Big Show. Eichorn next challenged for the WEDF United States Championship at WEDF Royal Rumble 2, he was unsuccessful with MVP retaining by pinning Booker T. At RassleMania 2, Matt Eichorn won a six man battle royal to win the United States Championship. Since then, Eichorn has only lost one match since RassleMania, to Stone Cold Steve Austin, on Episode 175, and has seen a drastic character change, bashing many favorites of the fans, such as Daniel Bryan and Zack Ryder. Eichorn says this turn is him just wanting to be "himself", thus he has earned the nicknames HEELcorn and The IWC's Worst Nightmare. But at WEDF Night of Champions: Extreme Rules, his reign as United States Champion came to an end when he lost the title to Christian in a Triple Threat TLC Match between him, Christian and Shelton Benjamin.
It's Walleh Time (2010-present)
On a preview webmatch Matt Eichorn defeated Cowlex to win the IWT Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship and be its first champion. He later would win it back on two separate times during the Time Limit Match and later on Danny's Hardcore Time Limit. Matt Eichorn would show up next on a CAW Champion of Champions match in which Eichorn would win the title as part of the five person group Nexus Gauge. Matt Eichorn won two awards during IWT End of Year Awards 2010 including the most prestigious IWT Superstar of the Year Award. At IWT One Night Stand, he successfully won his first round match up against TY. but fell short against Blake in the second round. Due to an injury suffered during training at Power Episode 3, Black Shawn Dynasty managed to defeat Eichorn and claim the King of the Quads trophy. At Fan Control a singles match will take place again between the two.
Early Success & Hardcore Champion (2011)
Matt would make a one off appearance in the last J-MAX webshow teaming up with Danny Jackpot to defeat his rival El Jefe and Blee Blee Blee. Matt Eichorn was planned to be in Jeri-MAX PMX Season 2, but Sakoda cancelled it and hired Matt as well as Caylen Rogers and Steven Spriter. Matt Eichorn made his Jeri-MAX debut by defeating Steven Spriter but lost on the next show to Caylen Rogers.
Soon after that, Eichorn became one half of the Jeri-MAX VORTEX announce team along with Johnny. At Jeri-MAX Ooze 2011, Eichorn defeated Spriter, Rogers, and Mongo McMichael to capture the Jeri-MAX Hardcore Championship. After losing in the finals of a Tag Team tournament with Caylen Rogers, Eichorn would go on to lose the Hardcore Championship to Rogers at The All-American American Bash.
Feud with "El Jefe" (2011 - 2012)
On Episode 36, angered both by the constant harassment from Linda McSeven and the presence of El Jefe, Eichorn proceeded to cut a promo on him. Eichorn explained that ever since Jefe rose to superstardom in CAW, people have called him a "Jefe Ripoff" and are always comparing him to the Colossal Cuban. Eichorn would go on to challenge Jefe to a match at the Spiral Rumble to decide who the better man was but Jefe declined, fearing another match could jeopardize his chances in the Rumble Match later on. Instead, Jefe delayed the challenge up until Jeri-MAX JeriMania II: The Quickening, provided that neither man win the Spiral Rumble Match, which wound up happening.
On episode 40 of VORTEX, Matt Eichorn would take his frustrations out on El Jefe, who had just lost to Evan Redcourne, with a series of Mandible Tree Branches and Unhawiian Nightmares. At Jeri-MAX Horizon, Eichorn failed to reclaim the Hardcore Championship, being the last man eliminated in a 4-way match to fill the vacant title which was won by Winter Bradleys. After weeks of back and forth attacks from behind, Eichorn would go on to defeat El Jefe at JeriMania. However, after the match, another El Jefe returned from Hell. The El Jefe that Eichorn beat revealed that he was really Matt Eichorn from an alternate timeline who grew so obsessed with people comparing to Jefe that he caved in, went crazy and assumed Jefe's identity. The fake El Jefe wanted Eichorn to beat him so that the same thing would not happen to him. After the real El Jefe assaulted "Jefeichorn" into thin air he invited Eichorn to Long John Silver's, something which the Unhawaiian Hawaiin just couldn't refuse.
King Matt Eichorn (2012 - present)
During the off-season, Matt Eichorn would take place in and controversially win the 2012 Jeri-MAX King of Heavens Tournament. After beating Jurt Angle thanks to a distraction from Chris Jericho, Eichorn would defeat The Artist Formerly Known as Winter Bradleys by pinning Rachel, who forced herself to take his place in the match. Eichorn would then be handed a Semi-Finals victory from Aladdin Hassan, who was too distraught over the death of Caylen Rogers to compete anymore. Finally, Eichorn went on to defeat Lamarell McDaniel by count out to win the crown and the World Heavyweight Championship shot at Jeri-MAX Black Hole. Lamarell would defeat Eichorn on the first WARP of season, adding himself to the Black Hole as a result due to a stipulation made by Claude Frollo. Despite pinning Pacman clean on Episode 46, Eichorn was unsuccessful in his attempt to win the World Championship. Lamarell would wind up winning the match and the title by pinning Pacman while Eichorn was down on the outside. After the match, Eichorn would assault Lamarell with the World Title until Aladdin Hassan came down for the save.
After cheating to win a #1 Contender's match thanks to his new ally Primo Slowking in a Pokemon Battle with Danny Jackpot at Jeri-MAX 50, Eichorn would go on to finally defeat Lamarell McDaniel at Jeri-MAX Ooze and win the Jeri-MAX World Heavyweight Championship; his first World Championship in CAW. Eichorn would then go on to successfully defend the title against El Jefe at The Global Equality Bash. Eichorn would go on to lose the title against Jurt Angle at the Spiral Rumble, in a match where Jurt promised to retire if he couldn't win the title. After the match, Aladdin Hassan would return and cash-in his Money in the Jeri-Bank to win the title, taking Jurt's life in the process.
Eichorn would then turn his attention to Chris Jericho, angered over wins over the King that Eichorn found unfair and cheap, Eichorn would attack Jericho multiple times, including right before a Jeri-MAX World Championship match. This would draw the ire of Danny Jackpot, who wanted Eichorn out of his own personal feud with Chris Jericho. The three would face off at Jeri-MAX Horizon, with Danny coming out on top after pinning Eichorn. After Jackpot and Jericho were chosen to compete for the vacant Intercontinental Championship, Eichorn was enraged over not being in any title picture. After Primo Slowking questioned whether or not the King could defeat the undefeated World Champion Bludgeon on Episode 61, Eichorn kicked Slowking out of the Unhawaiian Kingdom. After beating Primo on Episode 62, Eichorn revealed the his replacement as his good friend Johnny. Unfortunately for an excited Johnny, though, Eichorn treated him like a servant and forced him to end his tag team relationship with Batista, ending New Spotlight for good.
The relationship would not last long. On the following episode of WARP, Eichorn would physically abuse Johnny after a loss to Lucas Gomez, causing Johnny to retaliate and attack the King. Johnny's time in the Kingdom would be shortlived, and according to Eichorn, their years long friendship was over. It was the End of an Era. Eichorn would easily defeat Johnny at JeriMania the Third in a Hell in a JeriCell match thanks to Frankie's advice, but it was Johnny who got the last laugh, as Frankie would turn on Eichorn. Frankie would join up with Johnny and Christian, his revealed fellow Lizard People to form the Lounge, effectively ending the Unhawaiian Kingdom in the process.
