Sean Waltman, aka X-Pac, had an impressive wrestling career. The former 1-2-3 Kid wrestled the who’s who in WCW, WWE, Impact Wrestling, and Ring of Honor (ROH) during his decades-old career.

Waltman, 49, made his in-ring return at GCW’s Welcome to Heartbreak event Friday (February 25). He teamed with Joey Janela to take on The Major Players (Matt Cardona and Brian Myers).

Ahead of the match, Cardona took to Twitter with a message for X-Pac. Cardona revealed how he desperately wanted a 1-2-3 Kid Hasbro action figure for Christmas in 1994 but “Santa did not bring me the 1-2-3 Kid and it ruined my Christmas.”

The Impact Digital Media Champion said he spend the next four years saving money so he could buy the action figure and he did that in 1998. “It is the holy grail of my collection,” he further stated.


Cardona then lashed out at X-Pac for ruining his celebration at the Hammerstein Ballroom following Cardona’s win over Janela. He then lit the 1-2-3 Kid Hasbro action figure on fire. In case you’re wondering, that figure is worth well over $1k.

Cardona’s attempts to send X-Pac and Janela to hell, however, did not come to fruition as the duo defeated The Major Players in the main event of Welcome to Heartbreak in Los Angeles. Stay tuned as this feud is certain to get uglier.
