BIO: Raised in the most urban part of Saskatchewan, Kyle Roberts grew up under the tutelage of his high school gym coach, Gordon Jago. Roberts knew from an early age that wrestling federations all over the world would desire his talents as a wrestler and showman, and was determined to make sure that everyone was aware of this fact. He started off his wrestling career in Medicine Hat's Gastown Wrestling Alliance, where he would eventually team up with the Beast to with the GWA Tag Team Titles.
As Bruce Richards is fond of saying, The New and Improved DX is a "mutually beneficial partnership," and they're ready to take on all comers in the NAPW.
Well, they were. Until Kyle bashed a ring bell into The Beast's face.
APPEARANCE: Outside the Squared Circle, Kyle Roberts is always very well-dressed, wearing a green silk shirt underneath a pin-striped suit. In the ring, he wears green tights with "Stylin'" in gold lettering written down the side. He's always got a very subtle five o'clock shadow, and has brown hair and blue eyes.

BIO: Matthew had his promising basketball career at the University of Kentucky cut short by a knee injury in his sophomore year. After recovering and playing a greatly reduced role on the team and graduating from college, Matthew gave up basketball and started training to be a wrestler.
One night he was in the ring in Japan and calling out a crooked promoter saying he was the one that he caused the problems within his fed. The promoter came out and called Matthew, just another spoiled angry American. Matthew like the sound of the "Angry American" and took as his nickname dropping the "Big Cat Daddy" moniker he had been using. He also turned it into a full fledged gimmick, he started wearing red, white, & blue star spangled tights, carrying a USA flag to the ring with him and changing his theme music to Jimi Hendrix's version of "The Star Spangled Banner." After a few months of this he decided to move back to the States full time and went back to the mid-sized feds he started in. Matthew dropped the uberpatriotic gimmick and ring clothes and changed his theme music to what it is currently, but he kept the nickname.
Matthew is a big strong man who believes in fairness but is not a goody two-shoes. He's been known to swing a chair or jump others when he feels it's needed. This makes him more of a 'tweener than a face or heel, he plays no favorites, even fighting his brother a few times.
Despite his complaints in Japan, Matthew doesn't always look for titles and his own code of justice sometimes causes him to be bogged down in feuds instead of chasing titles. When he does challenge for titles he is always a threat to win them as his stamina (thanks to his basketball background & cardio training) and technical skill (he often spars & trains with his half-brother Chad) are both surprising for a man his size. Coupled with the fact that his power is exactly what you'd expect makes him a truly dangerous opponent. Matthew has missed a Federation to call his home, since the demise of FCW and is hoping REBEL will be that home for him. He's ready to remind the wrestling world how good he can actually be in the long run, and he can think of no better place to show people that than in REBEL.
Matthew has recently had a change of attitude and nickname,while he was not ever overly friendly he has become increasing confrontational and anit-social. This new attitude caused a rift between him and his former manager Lyndsey Valentine who left NAPW and him because of it. Now it seems that he only gets along with his brother "The Show" Chad Kurtis and his new manager, Mandy.
APPEARANCE: Matthew has brown eyes and long brown hair (down to between his shoulder blades) that he sometimes pulls back into a ponytail. He doesn't have movie star looks but is still good looking though. He is very built but not overly muscled.
Outside of the ring he wears mostly jeans, t-shirts, casual button down long sleeve shirts (usually with the sleeves rolled up), cowboy boots, motorcycle boots,and sneakers. He has a tattoo of an Native American Dreamcatcher on his left shoulder down to the elbow, one on his right shoulder of a Celtic Cross, and one on his left upper chest of a heart, butterfly, and banner that at one time read "LYNDSEY",the banner has since been colored in.
On the way to the ring he wears a black sleeveless t-shirt, that on the front has his design of a tattered USA flag with a bat (like the one Meat Loaf uses as his symbol) in front of it. The back of the shirt has the words "American Nightmare" in red "bleeding" letters. He throws this t-shirt into the crowd after removing it before the match.
In the ring he wears tight (but not super tight) black jeans, "cowboy" wrestling boots with a black and gray color scheme, a heavy brace on his left knee, black elbow pads on both arms, black fingerless gloves on both hands ,and he tapes both his wrists to halfway up his forearms with gray athletic tape.
