Zack Ryder was released from WWE on April 15th and a couple months later, they called him up to see if they could use his pool. He wasn’t very happy about that. A lot of things didn’t go right for Ryder in WWE. One of them stemmed from his inability to speak up and talk to Vince McMahon.

While speaking to Keeping It 100, Ryder admitted that he wasn’t the first Superstar to get over on YouTube outside of WWE. The fact that he was the Internet Champion wasn’t the issue. He blamed himself for not knocking on Mr. McMahon’s door.

“I could have easily knocked on his door and said ‘hey, Vince, what’s going on here?’”

“I at the time was a couple of things, I was naive, I wasn’t mature enough, I wasn’t man enough to knock on his door and ask, so we’ll never know.”


He only had himself to blame for not speaking with Vince McMahon about his spot in the company. Now Cardona is set on not holding any grudges or regrets as he looks forward to the next chapter in his career.

“I blame myself for that. I never want to regret things or hold grudges or blame other people because then you are just bitter and I just don’t want to live that life.”

Matt Cardona stated that he won’t take any indie dates until the novel coronavirus pandemic subsides. We’ll have to see what’s next for him, but WWE still has him under a non-compete clause until mid July.
