Jason Albert retired from the ring in 2014

Now retired, the individual known as Tensai now appears for WWE under the name Jason Albert.

Matthew Jason Bloom, a former NFL player, is perhaps best remembered for his body hair and piercings. He debuted as Prince Albert in 1999 and joined a short-lived trio that went by the name "the Pierced Pals." After the group disbanded, Albert formed a team with Test. Managed by the seductive Trish Stratus, these two big men were known as T & A.

JASON ALBERT FEATURES

In 2001, Albert formed an alliance with X-Pac and Justin Credible, known as X-Factor. When the group separated, Albert teamed with Scotty 2 Hotty. Dubbed the "Hip Hop Hippo," the team lasted until April 2002. In late 2002, Albert formed the most powerful alliance of his career. Now billed as A-Train, he was paired with Big Show and Paul Heyman. In singles competition, A-Train faced The Undertaker at SummerSlam 2003 and continues to appear on SmackDown until he was traded to Raw during the March 2004 Draft Lottery. That November, this pierced powerhouse parted ways with WWE.

Tons of Funk

During a Raw Roulette-themed edition of Raw on January 28, 2013, the baton of bizarreness was passed to Tensai and Brodus Clay. The two behemoths initially drew a “Lingerie Pillow Fight” but were awarded a dance-off on a second spin of the wheel. The WWE Superstar formerly known as A-Train sadly remained unaware of the change and came to the squared circle in his finest lingerie. On the ensuing episode of WWE Main Event, The Prime Time Players confronted Tensai backstage and teased him for his dance-off attire on Raw. Tensai, however, had the last laugh, as he took down Titus O’Neil with a running senton to secure the victory. Following the match, Clay and The Funkadactyls congratulated Tensai before all four talents broke down and boogied.

Tensai and Clay subsequently formed a tag team and would go on to defeat such tandems as Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal of 3MB, Primo and Epico, and Team Rhodes Scholars—Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow—with the latter contest taking place during the WWE Elimination Chamber Pre-Show on February 17, 2013. On the March 22, 2013 edition of SmackDown, Tensai and Clay were bested by Rhodes and Sandow in a tag team contest following interference from their associates, Nikki and Brie Bella. Before Divas Tag Team action got underway on the March 27, 2013 episode of WWE Main Event, The Funkadactyls revealed Tensai and Brodus Clay's tag team name—Tons of Funk. The announcement prompted the arrival of Tensai and Clay, who delighted WWE fans in Hershey, Pennsylvania by dancing their way to the ring. The revelation coincided with an announcement earlier in the day on WWE.com that Tons of Funk and The Funkadactyls would face The Rhodes Scholars and The Bella Twins in an Eight-Person Mixed Tag Team Match at WrestleMania 29 on April 7, 2013 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The match, however, was cut due to time constraints and instead took place the following night on Raw, where Tons of Funk and The Funkadactyls emerged victorious.

Jason Albert Named New Interim Head Trainer for NXT

Jason Albert talks about the WWE Performance Center

It was first revealed on the afternoon of March 6 that Bill DeMott would be stepping down as the head trainer of NXT developmental for World Wrestling Entertainment.

He announced his departure through his official Twitter account, stating how he didn’t want to cause the company any more embarrassment after a series of allegations concerning his treatment of trainees.

"I deny the recent allegations made about me, however, to avoid any embarrassment or damage to the WWE, I've decided to step down from my role effective immediately," Demott stated.

PWInsider.com is now reporting that Matt “Jason Albert” Bloom will be taking over DeMott’s responsibilities for the time being.

Bloom retired from in-ring competition on Aug. 7 of last year to become a full-time trainer at WWE’s Performance Center. He’s also done commentary for the brand under the name Jason Albert.

His in-ring resume includes stints as Prince Albert, A-Train and Tensai.
