Poor Matt Skills (born Matthew Bumgarner Skills on June 19, 1983) is an American professional wrestler currently wrestling for the WNWA.


Matt Skills and his fraternal twin brother Poor Mike Skills debuted briefly in 2000 until Captain Redneck blew up the Nashville Auditorium where they were scheduled to wrestle that night at the WNWA BBQ & Barbed Wire PPV. The horror of the bombing left them mentally scarred for years. As a result, they lost their home, belongings, friends, and family. Matt and Mike Skills were forced to seek out a meager existence by eating food from dumpsters behind fast-food restaurants and for two years resided beneath the overpass of Wendover Ave and Elm St. in Greensboro, NC.

The Liberal Librarian re-awakened the wrestling bug in them as he urged them back into wrestling, though its rumored the Liberal really wanted more wrestlers he could defeat in order to raise his status in the WNWA. And so in December 2006, they made their re-debut in the WNWA only to receive a savage beating by Captain Redneck.

For a time Poor Matt and Mike Skills live in the cargo section of the WNWA Greyhound Charter bus (which is where they also rode). In addition to wrestling, they were contracted to clean the sewage out of the buses following each trip. Nevertheless, they vowed to pursue their dream of titles and revenge against Captain Redneck.

The Skills brothers form a tag team known as The Vagrants. They are currently a part of the stable Frustrated Inc. On March 30, 2007 The Vagrants scored a stunning upset victory over Triple K and Dale Taylor with an assist by The Turd to win the WNWA National Tag Team Championship. They lost those titles in a unification bout at UnCivil War to The Lummox.

Personal Life and views

  • Matt Skills is driven by his desire to ruin Captain Redneck.
  • Skills is one of the more talented promo men around today, however, his in ring work is very poor.


  • The Vagrants met The Liberal Librarian in Greensboro, NC while the Librarian was protesting in front of a church. They came up to him and panhandled and he struck up a friendship with them.
  • The Skills brothers both use Merle Haggard's "Are the Good Times Really Over (I Wish a Buck Was Still Silver)" as their entrance music.


$10,500 + $50 per 'job' fee. They also receive a 30% discount on bus fares.
