Tyler Breeze Discusses The Origins Of His Iconic WWE Character



Appearing recently on the “Agents of Wrestling‘ podcast, Matt Clement talked about a wide range of topics, including starting off in WWE under his real name, coming up with the ‘Tyler Breeze’ gimmick, developing the persona and more. He said,

“When I started [in WWE], it was like, ‘Alright, you’re going to start as Matt Clement until we figure out your name, and then I think I pitched a couple different names. You pitched a couple of first names, a couple of last names, with your favorites at the top.”

Elaborating on how he developed various characters, with Tyler Breeze being the one WWE green-lit, Clement said,

“I kind of had to start branching out and thinking about who else I could be, or how I could become marketable. I just came up with some characters, and one of them happened to be Tyler Breeze — the Zoolander-esque male model. And then they kind of liked that one, and there was something to it, so then I just worked with a couple people to make it more and more and more, and slowly, over the course of six months, a year, two years, whatever — [it] became what you ended up seeing.”

Clement has a special contract with WWE, which allows him to continue to appear on UpUpDownDown as Tyler Breeze. Meanwhile, he recently made his return to the ring on the indies as well.
