The snobby, boastful man who ironically refers to himself as "England's Finest Gentleman" and wears his European Wrestling League Golden Championship medal during each entrance definitely rubs American fans the wrong way. Quinn Cadbury was born in London, England and was raised in a wealthy family that had a very close relationship to the Royal Family, so Quinn was used to a life of luxury and excess. He attended the best prep schools, participated in the top level of athletic competition and was touted as the next English superstar. When he completed his college education, Quinn entered England's top-notch wrestling academy and trained for a life on Europe's pro circuit. He signed with the EWL and had a very successful career. His fiercest battles were against France's Joseph T. Lutte, and famously beat Lutte in the Frenchman's final EWL bout to win his 1st Golden Championship. But after Lutte left the EWL for the WWE, the organization fell on hard financial times and struggled to maintain its hold as Europe's premier wrestling league. Quinn was the then-current EWL champion at the time of its disbanding, and purchased the Golden Championship medal he held and brought it with him when he relocated to the U.S. The WWE offered him a contract and he accepted, planning to introduce the American audience to his English superiority.
Made his debut on the first Smackdown of May and immediately formed a partnership with Joseph T. Lutte, his former rival in Europe... Together they created the Golden Level of Wrestling (G.L.O.W. for short) tag team, and very quickly rose up the division ranks... On the final episode of Raw of the month, they upset the Hell's Genius team of DMK and David Degenerate to win the Tag Team Titles... In June, they continued their rivalry with the American Cool trio, and were set to defend the titles against them... At the King of the Ring PPV, Quinn and Joseph won a No DQ match over Antonio Jordan & Krizz Torture to retain the Tag Team Titles... Joseph arranged for American Cool to defend their #1 contenders' status against the Bullet Boyz, and he interfered in the match to cost them the match... G.L.O.W. then faced the Bullet Boyz at the Night of Champions PPV for their Tag Team Titles, but Antonio Jordan interfered in retaliation and cost Joseph & Quinn the match and their belts... Joseph & Quinn received a rematch a few days later but failed to recapture the titles... Later in the month, Smackdown GM Teddy Long announced that Antonio would put his Intercontinental Title on the line in a tag team match against G.L.O.W.... At the Summerslam PPV, an argument between Antonio & Krizz and a sacrifice by Quinn allowed Joseph to pin Antonio and win the title... In September, a rift grew between Joseph & Quinn as Quinn requested a title match against his ally multiple times... At the Hell in a Cell PPV, Joseph defended his Intercontinental Title against Antonio and brought 3 hired personal guards to the ring... During the match, Quinn revealed himself to be disguised as one of them and interfered, helping Joseph retain the title... In October, a Beat-the-Clock Challenge was announced to determine the new #1 contender for Joseph's title... Quinn conspired with Billy Carter to win a match quickly, earning a title shot against his partner... In a Tag Team #1 contender's match days before the PPV, Quinn attacked Joseph and revealed his long-term plan to betray the "Fantastic Frenchman"... At the Judgment Day PPV, Quinn upset Joseph to win his 1st Intercontinental Title... The feud continued into November, where Quinn retained the belt against Joseph at Survivor Series... In December, he was forced to defend his title against Antonio Jordan but took a deliberate DQ to retain, although he was chased out of the arena by an angry "Mastermind"
