When you first look at this pudgy, tobacco-chewin', trucker hat wearing southern fellow, you may not realize that he is a multi-time champion and 10-year veteran.

Before his arrival in the WWE, Trevor traveled throughout the indpendants for many years. He wrestled in World Wrestling League where he held their World Heavyweight Championship and shortly in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.

Murdoch was signed by the WWE in 2005 and immediately started a tag team with Lance Cade. The two wrestled in OVW and dark matches prior to RAW and SmackDown! broadcasts frequently. Eventually they would be called up to the main roster to compete on RAW. Vignettes started to air in what appeared to be a southern bar. Lance Cade played the part of a smooth talking young cowboy where as Trevor was a angered, sourpussed truck driver. Upon debuting, they quickly rose up the ranks earning a Tag Team Title shot against The Hurricane & Rosey. They were able to defeat them to win their first Tag Team Titles, but lost them just one month later to Big Show and Kane.

Cade & Murdoch went their seperate ways almost immediately afterwards. Murdoch spent his time reviewing movies and wrestling on HEAT. During his time in singles, he feuded with the likes of Goldust, the Heart Throbs, and Snitsky. Though he was enjoying some success as a singles wrestler, he would return to teaming with Cade.

In April 2007, Cade & Murdoch started a feud with the Hardy Boyz, Jeff and Matt Hardy. The storyline had Cade & Murdoch constantly offering handshakes and help the Hardyz. Although it took awhile for the brothers to trust them, they eventually formed an alliance. Cade & Murdoch used this supposed friendship to gain constant title shots. While the Hardyz were open to giving rematches with respect, once Cade & Murdoch were able to win the titles, the friendship abrupting ended and they beat the Hardy Boyz down.

Cade & Murdoch enjoyed a lengthy reign as champions defending against the likes of Cryme Time, The Highlanders, and Paul London & Brian Kendrick. They were the champions until the RAW Anniversary show where they lost the titles to Cody Rhodes & Hardcore Holly.

In recent days, Murdoch has aspired to be a country singer and is often heard singing before scheduled matches. This eventually lead to the seemingly permanent break-up of Cade & Murdoch. After a victory song, Cade punched him twice in the face. Murdoch would attempt to get revenge, but Cade came out victorious.

During the WWE Supplemental Draft 2008, Murdoch was sent over to SmackDown! This is the first time Murdoch has left RAW since his arrival in the WWE.
