For those that missed Jason Albert's video blog that we posted on Friday here at, he confirmed he's retired from in-ring competition to train talent at the WWE Performance Center. Albert talked about 70-75 people getting the opportunity to workout there and put over the capabilities of the facility. He works six days a week at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

Albert, whose real name is Matt Bloom, has held numerous gimmicks throughout his career. In the video above, he went through the gimmicks in WWE alone and the list is quite extensive.

Albert worked for WWE from 1999-2004 before having success in Japan, working for both All Japan Pro Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. He returned to WWE in 2012 after The Undertaker pitched him to company officials.

Albert also works as a commentator for WWE NXT broadcasts.
