Evan Bourne, aka Matt Sydal, is a professional wrester and one of the WWE Superstars on SCI FI Channel's "ECW."

Evan Bourne is a high-flying ring technician whose fast-paced intensity is quickly making him a force to be reckoned with throughout WWE.

While growing up in St. Louis, it was Superstars such as Bret Hart, Dean Malenko, Rey Mysterio, and Eddie Guerrero that first instilled in young Bourne a desire to make audiences feel the way he did while watching them.

Later, he became a hardcore ECW fan, admiring such greats as Tazz, Sabu, and RVD. And it was while traveling to ECW events that he captured his first taste of the live, unbridled sports-entertainment intensity that he would never let go of.

Bourne started training to be a professional wrestler at 17 years old. Before long, he had become the first person under the age of 18 to be licensed to wrestle in state of Missouri. It was during his very first match, while connecting with a difficult moonsault, that a familiar feeling washed over him and left no doubt in his mind that he was doing what he was meant to do.

While, continuing to learn all he could about the business, Bourne attended college, earning a degree in marketing from the University of Missouri-Columbia. He went on to become the vice president of sales and marketing for a small mailbox company in St. Louis. But, during his time, his company allowed all the time he wanted to travel and train. They knew, as did he, that his destiny lay in the ring.

Bourne's quest to join WWE eventually took him all over United States, Europe and Japan. During this time, he became very accomplished, winning several honors including St. Louis' Wrestler of the Year in 2006 and Move of the Year in 2007 for his Shooting Star Press.

In 2008, Bourne blasted onto the ECW scene, giving the WWE Universe an exciting combination of Mexican, Japanese, and American training styles that has made him both a dangerous high-flyer and a sound ground technician.

Overall, Bourne is very excited about being a part of the Land of the Extreme and feels it will give him a perfect opportunity to give WWE fans a creative, unique style that they have never seen before. In the months to come, Bourne has set his sights on proving himself and earning the respect of one and all.
