Matt Cardona was released from WWE last year and he spent the pandemic planning out his next moves. He appeared for AEW a handful of times and now he is working working for Impact Wrestling under a shorter deal. He knows that WWE is still out there, but his goal isn’t to get back right now.
While talking on the Pro Wrestling 4 Life podcast, Matt Cardona opened up about his present goals in pro wrestling. He said that WWE never offered him any deal to come back as they did reportedly extend contracts to some released Superstars at much lower dollar amounts than they were previously receiving.
Cardona’s goal isn’t getting back to WWE right away. He wants to continue doing his thing. If he ends up in WWE then that would be great, but he doesn’t really care right now, because he’s having so much fun.
“Listen, they certainly never offered me anything. Never say never. I’m not going to say, ‘I’m not going to go to WWE. I hate WWE.’ WWE is great. It was the only thing I ever loved as a kid. I’m not saying it’s the only wrestling company I ever loved, the only thing I loved was wrestling, was WWE. I spent my whole adult life there. I’m so fortunate for everything, but right now, my goal is not how can I get back to WWE. That’s not my goal right now. I don’t even think about it. Will I ever go back? Never say never. Sure. Maybe. Whatever. I’m not thinking, ‘What can I do to get noticed so they’ll bring me back?’ No. I don’t care. I’m having so much fun outside WWE.”
Matt Cardona really had a great time at that recent GCW show. He worked the fans and about caused a riot as people legitimately thought he was Jon Moxley for a bit. We’ll have to see what’s next for Cardona, but he seems to be having a lot of fun right now.
The Thousand Dollar Broski also has two podcasts and keeps racking in that merchandise money. It sounds like he’s doing just fine whether or not WWE decides to call him again.
