Cody Rhodes has left AEW and speculation has continued over his future. Now we have Cody’s good friend and GCW and Impact Star Matt Cardona sharing his views. If you ask the former Zack Ryder, he doesn’t want to know what’s going on until it plays out for itself.

Matt Cardona joined My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox where he stated that he doesn’t know what Cody is going to do, but whatever he chooses to do, it will be cool to see.

“If it makes him happy, that’s all that matters, right? I mean Cody is a great friend of mine. I do not know what’s going on. Everybody’s trying to speculate and I’m definitely not going to ask him because I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know. Let’s let this play out.

“I’m also a wrestling fan at heart. So as a wrestling fan it’ll be cool to see, right? But wherever he ends up, it’s going to be cool to see. That’s what’s so great about this. And if he goes back to AEW and this is all a big work, that’s fine too. So I’m just along for the ride when it comes to that.”


Irrespective of Cody’s decision to join WWE or stay back in AEW, Matt Cardona has no plans to join either side. While he would consider offers, returning to either promotion is not something Cardona has planned.

“My goal right now is not ‘aw man, what do I got to do to get back in WWE or get in AEW. No. Not at all. I love what I’m doing right now. You know, 10 years ago with my YouTube show, I think I proved, no, I know that I proved that hard work, the internet, social media, whatever, that you can change your position in a major company.”

“I proved that 10 years ago and I opened up, before there was a Forbidden Door, I opened up that door for so many people to create their own opportunities. Now 10 years later, I want to prove that you don’t necessarily need AEW or WWE to be a successful pro wrestler. If one of those companies called me, of course, I would listen. Of course, I would have a conversation. But that is not my goal to go back.”

Matt Cardona is currently the hottest star in the independent circuit carrying five titles. Next month, he will be defending his recently won NWA World Heavyweight Championship against former champ Nick Aldis at NWA’s Crockett Cup.
