Son of the veteran "Tough" Tony Borne.  Superstar known the world over, where he competed at the first WrestleMania against Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, won tag team gold with Buzz Sawyer (managed by Percy Pringle III aka Paul Bearer) at World Class Championship Wrestling in Texas, had a run as Big Josh in WCW, before coming to WWF(E) in late 1992 to debut the evil Doink The Clown, a gimmick meant for the recycling bin that the one and only Matt Borne turned into professional wrestling art.  While his WWF run came to an end in late 1993 and Borne seemed to fall off the face of the planet, he is back, better than ever, ready to open up a new chapter of his life.  On June 27th, Matt Borne sat down in the intimate setting of the MWF's TV Studio to conduct a near three hour Studio Shoot Interview DVD taping with Dan Mirade and John Cena Sr. 

From the WWE Encyclopedia:  in late 1992, this clown brought his circus act to WWE.  His mean spirited pranks both in and out of the ring made him a prime target for competitors and audiences alike.  At WrestleMania IX, he attacked Crush with the aid of an imposter, adding confusion to his cruel antics.  Doink could not contain the joy he received by making others miserable.
