Matthew Williams; Phony SEAL

| August 28, 2017

Our partners at Military Phonies send us their work on this Matt Williams fellow who claims that he’ll train you to be Navy SEAL and pro-wrestler just like him;

Of course, he’s one of only three survivors of his SEAL Team and he caught the PTSD;

When Military Phonies asked the NPRC for his records, they replied “Who?”

    “Beast Mode” apparently includes a lot of fat …

  2. Green Thumb says:

    Dude looks like he hangs around kids.

    That ain’t good.

  3. Jay says:

    Love when fat dudes claim to be weight lifters….must be in the forever bulking phase.


  4. Combat Historian says:

    Not even a boot camp washout, just a phony phat phuck who likes to play pretend…

    P.S.: I bet this POS was never a WWE pro-wrestler either…

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Not a sumo wrestler, either. Too skinny.

      • Poetrooper says:

        I was going to point out to all these fat-shamers here that just because you don’t have well-defined musculature doesn’t mean you can’t be incredibly strong-and fast. Sumo wrestlers are a prime example as are professional football linemen.

        In the “old Army” when fat guys could still serve, we even had some in the Airborne who were bad-ass to the bone. One of the strongest and fastest I ever knew looked much like this phony SEAL. He’d re-enlisted for the Airborne because he got tired of all the violence associated with being a night club bouncer.

        I crossed him one time with my smart mouth and he put me down with a single punch to my sternum which I never saw coming. I couldn’t breathe without pain for a week. Heh…

        • Eden says:

          “he put me down with a single punch to my sternum”

          That’s an easy way to kill someone (if you catch them in the right part of their heart rhythm cycle).

    • Son of Loyd says:

      *Puke alert*

      He means Wee Wee Emmentaler. He wrestles with his fat gut getting to his wee wee in order to get the frumunda cheese produced there.

  5. Roh-Dog says:

    This dude should spend more time wrestling with his appetite and the truth.

  6. Ex-PH2 says:

    I think one of these guys could teach him a thing or two. Code of honor, you know.

    • Hondo says:

      This “fine fellow” might be about as big as Konishiki these days. Konishiki has apparently lost 300lb after having gastric bypass surgery.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Lost 300???? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

        My heart is broken, Hondo. Sumo will never be the same without that extra big.

        I am sad.

      • just some feller says:

        But these “rikishi” [strong men/sumo] are well-trained and very flexible by the time they begin their professional career. It ain’t just fat. For instance, all of them can, while sitting on the floor, spread their legs very wide and touch their noses on the floor.
        Check out the 37second mark:
        By the end of his training he’ll be able to do that without help. I was trying to find the clip where you could hear the joints pop.

        More on sumo training:
        Spanish narration, some English subtitles.

        Most of these kids were in sumo clubs or judo clubs in school.

        • Hondo says:

          Understood, JSF – sumo wrestlers are indeed athletes, not just fat slobs.

          But when he wrestled, Konishiki got up to somewhere around 650lb. His weight was so high it affected his career longevity.

          He couldn’t shed that weight normally due to knee/other issues, so he had bariatric surgery about 3 years ago. He’s shed about 300lbs since.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          There’s all of that, and competitive weightlifters are also very big, but underneath they are solid muscle. They need every calorie they consume.

          • Jay Godfrey says:

            Brian Shaw is like that. Guy is 6’8, 400+lbs and is just LARGE, but he’s a 4x World’s Strongest Man. Doesn’t look cut by any means but he is STRONG.

  7. thebesig says:

    He would’ve had a better chance of convincing people that he was Mr. Shreck, Mr. Potato Head, or one of those “Arf Arf” seals. The only thing that I see him “assaulting” is the all-you-can-eat buffet, and as many doughnuts as he can grab and gobble up. Those all-you-can-eat buffet owners must have the, “Oh shit, we’re going to be fucked” look when they see him pull into the driveway, then they breathe a sigh of relief and count their luck after he leaves their establishment, leaving a wake of buffet entries all jacked up and messy.

  8. F*** all of you says:

    I think it’s sad that the only thing you all can come up with to make fun of this man is that he’s fat. If he lied about being in the military, that’s wrong.. why not mention that instead? Talking about his weight and buffets makes you no better than he is. You’re all ignorant.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Oh, really? Well, he claims to be a wrestler. Unless he’s going into sumo, where excess weight is a given, he’s out of shape to claim being a wrestler. Here’s a video of the 2012 Olympic gold medal match in wrestling with REAL wrestlers, toots.

      • Jay Godfrey says:

        Not necessarily. Tab Thacker was 6’4 and 450lbs and won the NCAA Heavyweight Championship at NC State in 84. Guy was frigging LARGE but could move (and dunk a basketball). But this guy? I’m raising the BS flag on anything he says.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      What’s your point? Being obese is a symptom of a lack of discipline MOST of the time. This example of walking lack of self discipline lied about being in the military, an institution that mandates by rules to remain physically fit.
      If you have some personal issues regarding weight, that’s a ‘you problem’, don’t try to make it mine.

    • Bobo says:

      Actually, we are all making fun of his fat ass IN ADDITION TO lying about being in the military.

      After living in a world driven by high/weight and PT standards, we’ve earned the right to call out a fat body who claims to be a military member.

    • Sandman says:

      I get the feeling Jenny Craig didn’t work for the original commenter here, and the level of butthurt just hit ‘triggered’!

      • Mick says:

        Roger that.

        And after reading that original post, I think that it may be time for all hands on Team TAH to face outboard and standby to repel Sockpuppets.

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      I guess you don’t see the irony of a plus-sized fitness instructor.

    • 26Limabeans says:

      Ya. He’s a fat slob. Most of the SEAL posers tend to be fat slobs, slugs etc.
      It’s part of the shame of being a fat, slob poser and if it fits he’s going own it.

      And those biceps look like atrophied fat,not muscle.

    • MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

      This is a Mil and Vets Blog. We make observations according to standards that we know and share.

      To suggest that we are all IGNORANT for calling this POSER fat, your are wrong.

      We are keenly OBSERVANT.

      Get your facts straight.

    • The Stranger says:

      Yeah, well fuck you too.

    • mr. sharkman says:

      Because he’s given who knows how many unknowing Citizens the idea that his fat ass is representative of a (former) SEAL.

      I know some former Teamguys who for one reason or another (but never lack of discipline regarding eating) put on a lot of weight. More than one of them refuses to let people know they were former Teamguys because they ‘no longer present an acceptable image/example’.

      So fvck this fatty. Tarnishing and disgracing the Golden Leg Spreader has a cost when the phony is revealed.

    • Silentium Est Aureum says:

      Bitch is so fat his spirit animal is fried chicken.

      Motherfucker is so fat, when he walks across the room, the RADIO skips.

      And oh yeah, fuck this lying phony piece of shit.

  9. BIm says:

    It seems that it is not this clown’s first rodeo with Stolen Valor. I refer to a comment that he made way back on 16-Feb-2011 (

    In case it ‘disappears’, here is the statement from Fatty Bo-boMattie:

    I feel no real need to make a comment about people questioning me with tons of military questions. My Life, My Business. Period. Furthermore, I have NOTHING but the utmost respect and admiration for our men and women who serve our country. As ALL men in my family have for several generations. From WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Korea, Desert Storm, etc.. However,since some of you are TOTAL A-holes, that felt the need to bother my Family tonight,let me set the record straight. I hereby state on this date, Feb 16th, 2011 I am NOT a Navy Seal, nor currently in the military. For those of you messaging me with hostility, claiming to be a SEAL, or Ex SEAL. ( I figure 95% are full of **it) However, if you were, just cause you passed the course, seems like you are still lacking in the maturity and integrity department. Two things taught above all else in the Teams,but then what do I know? (*wink) Have a good night folks. Oh, and lay off the Juice, your alls testosterone levels are through the roof!’

  10. AZtoVA says:

    WTH is it with selfies in the front seat of your car? I could understand a selfie in front of your car, so everyone could tell how much of a manly man you are by the badass Mopar in the background, but seriously – in the front seat and wearing that wussy seat-belt?

  11. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    You guyz are clueless!

    What he meant to say is, “my name is Shrek”.

    You have to read between the lines!

  12. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    Hey Mathew, as long as you look like a nebish, don’t B.S. the peeps about something that your not.

  13. Skippy says:

    BHWHAHAHAHA !!!!!!!

  14. lily says:

    “The U.S. navy and marine corps divers have now recovered the remains of all 10 USS John S.McCain sailors,” the Seventh Fleet said in a statement on its website.

    The news follows the navy’s Thursday announcement that it had suspended wider search and rescue operations after finding and identifying the remains of one sailor.

    The navy found the remains of missing sailors inside sealed sections of the damaged hull of the warship, which is moored at Singapore’s Changi Naval Base.

    • Deplorable B Woodman says:

      Rest in Peace, gents.
      Final rest for the sailors and closure for the families.
      Damn, it got dusty here all of a sudden. Allergies.

  15. Bombstopr says:

    His Operation FB Shutdown is on. But his second FB page is still up and allows posts.

  16. Marine 0331 says:

    Ok, ok, so we’ve worn out the fact that this lying blob is a tub-o-lard that never met a slice of pie he didn’t like – did he really fucking say he was a fucking bodybuilder? Holy Fucking schnikes!!! What I want to discuss his his total lack of writing skills. I know all you dogfaces think us Jarheads are dumb as a bag of hammers, but the SEALs….man you guys are really dumb. Errr, I mean, you phony SEALs. So far, of all the phony branches of the service, phony SEALs are the dumbest.

  17. mr. sharkman says:

    The hat. That fuckin’ hat.

    1 of 3 survivors of his Team. HIS TEAM. Holy sh1t I missed the part where one of the Teams lost >100 SEALs. WTF happened? 😉

    And the ‘mini Murph’ posted is a fvcking disgrace to the memory of Lt. Murphy and his level of conditioning/fitness (which was outstanding within the group of his peers).

    From the flab factor showing in the ‘beast mode’ picture, I wonder if he lifts anything besides the ice cream scoop.

    • IDC SARC says:

      best line at about 1:43:xx

      What is Mike Thornton doing today?

      Whatever the fuck Mike Thornton wants to do today!

  18. IDC SARC says:

    Figured a phony SEAL discussion might be a good place to post this.

    Mike Thornton got his MOH saving another SEAL LT MOH winner in Vietnam.

    I’ve met Mike Thorton, it was years ago when he was an LDO and still harder than woodpecker lips.

    • mr. sharkman says:

      Fvckin’ HOOYAH LT Thornton.

      I’ve got a pic with me sandwiched between him and Tom Norris at an East Coast reunion. I’ll see if I can find a way to post it here. Or give me an email addy and I’ll email to you.

      I’ve also got (but location unknown, I really hope I haven’t lost it) a polaroid snapped by a buddy long ago: Thornton signing off on my dive quals on the pier @ Norfolk. I need to track that down and get it scanned.

      I really need to try to round up all the pics I can, especially from buddies. I didn’t take that many myself (pre-smartphone+camera era) and never kept an organized photo album. I wish I had.

      And patches and pins…dozens from all over the world I need to get them all together and secured.

      FFL Jungle Warfare pin, Commando Hubert patch and pin, I could go on and on. But they are scattered. Very sad I let that happen (although a nephew who is big into military history is inadvertently collecting them all as he finds them in various bags and pouches and a couple of boxes I have stored at his parents house).

      Jocko and Mike Thornton in the same video. Stallone just felt an urgent need to start using tampons. 😉

      • IDC SARC says:

        I’ve been sitting here listening to the podcast. Had to stop to grip and grin with the head of MARSOC and his entourage.

        My testosterone level is fukking roiling.

  19. A Vinson Tiger says:

    Hello all, not sure if anyone will read this comment being as the last one posted on this thread was in August of 2017, but anyway, here goes. I know this cat. I went to Vinson High School with him. In school, he didn’t seem to have many friends and was mostly quiet and was regarded pretty much as a loser. I personally do not believe that he was ever even IN the military, much less a Navy SEAL, and one reason for that s the guy has on his Facebook profile, unless he has changed it, that he GRADUATED high school in 1988, and then entered military service in 1989. Well, heads up people, because I’m pretty sure he was SUPPOSED to be in my graduating class, which was the class of 1989, so he is definitely lying about “graduating from high school” in 1988. Plus, not only that, but I have a yearbook from the 1988 school year, which was my junior year, and he is listed as a SOPHOMORE that year, so apparently, he had failed a grade. So, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out, that probably when he says “graduated from high school,” what he REALLY means, is QUIT high school, as in DROPPED out. Now, in all fairness, I do not know for sure that he actually dropped out of high school, I’m just saying that if his high school attendance came to an end in 1988, it damn sure isn’t because he GRADUATED, because as we all know, one graduates high school their SENIOR year, NOT their SOPHOMORE year. Lol. Now, hear tell it, he did TRY to become a professional wrestler, but, and not surprisingly, he failed in that attempt. Now, I hate stolen valor, but I have mixed feelings toward Matt. I think it is a dick move and bullshit that he tries to claim valor and honor that he obviously did NOT earn, and so, does NOT deserve, but I also feel sorry for the guy, that he is so ate up with what I call, “loseritis,” that he feels the need to make up such clearly untrue things about himself in such a grandiose way as to be not only be totally unbelievable, but to also be observably PATHETIC on such an epic scale. Anyway, that’s all I’ve got to say for now.
