Matt Cardona was known as Zack Ryder during his time in WWE as he worked hard to establish himself in the company. Cardona was at his peak back in 2011 but eventually stumbled after that. He also responded to CM Punk taking a shot at him recently.

As previously reported, CM Punk blasted Matt Cardona for his take on Sasha Banks and Naomi walking out on Monday Night RAW. Many people were surprised by this as well.

While speaking to Nick Hausman of WrestlingInc, Matt Cardona was asked about CM Punk taking a shot at him. Cardona said that he thought it was obvious that the Tweet was a joke.

“It was a fun tweet, I don’t know what part of the tweet was more obvious that it was a joke, a) that I was going to put my neck brace on Johnny Ace’s table, or b) that I was talking about the respect of the Internet Championship. It was a joke. I still think it was funny. If people don’t like it, I mean that’s life. You can’t please everybody. You’re always going to have a hater or a critic. That’s life, it is what it is, and I wasn’t going to engage in some Twitter back and forth with anybody over it. I thought it was a funny tweet. I didn’t delete it. I thought it was pretty clever.


We always had a good relationship. We used to ride together. I haven’t talked to him in a while, but I have nothing bad to say about Punk.

As I said earlier, I don’t really care what other people say, it didn’t really affect me. I saw the tweet obviously, people sent it to me. He’s entitled to his opinion. And like I said, I wasn’t going to engage. For what? It’s just a joke tweet. I thought it was funny, and still think it’s funny. It is what it is.”

As previously reported, Matt Cardona got injured at GCW Downward Spiral. Matt Cardona would end up confirming he will need bicep surgery. We’ll have to see when Cardona will be able to compete again.
