Sidney Iking Bateman, better known as Reggie, was born on March 13, 1993, in Memphis, Tennessee, and he is 30 years old as of 2023.
However, he was raised in St. Louis, Missouri, where he spent his formative years. Reggie grew up in a family of eight siblings, and he had a relatively normal childhood.
His parents played a significant role in shaping his character and instilling values of hard work and determination.
During his teenage years, Reggie had a brief period where he got involved with a gang called the Crips from the 50 Hundred GST.
However, a tragic event, the death of one of his friends at the hands of a rival gang member, made Reggie realize the dangers of his lifestyle.
This incident prompted him to leave the gang and focus on pursuing his passion for acrobatics and circus performance.
Reggie’s dedication to his craft led him to join Circus Harmony, where he trained for seven years. He further honed his skills in Montreal for an additional three years, eventually gaining recognition for his acrobatic talents.
Reggie is a private individual when it comes to his personal life. However, it is known that he is a father of two children.
His commitment to his family is evident in his desire to provide them with a secure and loving environment.
Reggie’s career in professional wrestling began in 2020 when he signed with WWE. Initially, he appeared on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Reginald Thomas, portraying a French sommelier.
He quickly caught the attention of fans and fellow wrestlers with his unique character and impressive acrobatic abilities.
After his stint as a sommelier, Reggie dropped the gimmick and changed his ring name to Reggie. He became a four-time WWE 24/7 Champion, with his first reign lasting an impressive 112 days, making it the longest reign for the title.
In late 2022, Reggie transitioned to WWE’s developmental brand, NXT, under a mysterious gimmick known as Scrypts. He debuted as Scrypts in November, and his enigmatic persona added a new layer of intrigue to his character.
