Matt Cardona, formerly known as Zack Ryder during his time in WWE, struggled to gain significant screen time and was unable to truly break out as a star there. He was eventually released by WWE in 2020 and went on to achieve greater success outside the organization. That being said, it seems Cody Rhodes really wants to see Cardona back in WWE.
Ringside News also exclusively reported that Matt Cardona is on WWE’s radar for a return. To the surprise of no one, fans have already started speculating if he will end up in WWE again or not. Cardona has made sure fans keep thinking about him.
On January 19th, Matt Cardona filed for trademarks on “WOO WOO WOO. YOU KNOW IT” for merchandise, toys, and entertainment purposes. Before that, he also registered a trademark for “Zack Ryder,” his old WWE name, last year.
Matt Cardona is also trying to lock down the ‘Indy God’ name. While he is still very happy working in the independent circuit, fans are still wondering whether he will ever make his way back to WWE.
Matt Cardona has held the GCW World Championship, the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship, the Impact Digital Media Championship, and several other titles. Obviously, his trip through the indies has been a successful one.
While Cody Rhodes spoke with Good Karma Wrestling, Matt Cardona came up in the interview. Rhodes called him the king of the indies and made it clear that he would love to see Cardona back in WWE, as it would be off the charts.
I’m really proud of him. He’s out there, he’s doing the Indy God thing with the Indiana Jones hats. Everything Matt’s doing, Matt has been the king of the indies now, this is going on year two.
You only usually get one run in that role. He’s going on year two. What Matt does next is gonna be huge. If he goes to AEW, that’d be cool. But if he comes back to WWE, that’s what I want. It would be off the charts. I think he’s a huge get, a huge free agent, and he’s the best he’s ever been.
Matt Cardona has stated that he has unfinished business in the WWE and is looking forward to his comeback in the company. While Cardona’s wife Chelsea Green returned to WWE at the Royal Rumble earlier this year, only time will tell when he would make his comeback to the company.
