Aran Matthews is a bounty hunter, mixed martials artist, and professional e-wrestler who was signed to Lords of Pain Wrestling (LPW), performing on its Insanity brand. He is the cousin of the LPW superstar, Joe Michaels.

Early life

Aran Matthews was born in Arlington, Texas to Corey and Tara Matthews, who were considered poor at the time of birth but were actually lapped in several forms of luxury. Like his cousin, the late Joe Michaels, his family would have him trained in several different forms of mixed martial arts (MMA). He learned Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai from Royce Gracie himself, as well as some freestyle fighting from Rich Franklin and Chuck Liddell. While sticking to a somewhat strict straight edge lifestyle, like Joe he decided to enter a career in professional wrestling, but not until he defeated his mentors in a battle of respect.


After the departure of his cousin and LPW superstar, Joe Michaels, Aran Matthews took up where Michaels had left off, acting as a substitute for the Royal Beanstalk match during the Insanity LIVE from Glasgow broadcast on July 19, 2009. Matthews entered the match as 15th entrant, wearing a Canadian Government attire and equipped with a utility belt containing several restraint weapons. He immediately went after Killswitch, who had recently escaped from prison after the Canadian Government lost favor in him. Matthews was hired to bring Killswitch back to Canada for a generous amount, however both men were eliminated from the match by Ash Strife. It was later revealed that Matthews will face the fugitive Killswitch at Body Count.
