Chelsea Green, a prominent figure in WWE, shares a blissful marriage with Matt Cardona, formerly known as Zack Ryder during his tenure with the company. Despite their connection to the wrestling world, Green made a surprising revelation, indicating that Zack Ryder is a persona banned from their household.

While Cardona’s time in WWE didn’t see him achieve the desired success, leading to his eventual release in 2020, he has since flourished in the independent circuit, earning the moniker “Indy God” among fans.

In recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Green disclosed that discussions about Zack Ryder are strictly off-limits in their home. She humorously stated, “Zack Ryder is dead. We don’t talk about Zack Ryder in our household.” Green emphasized that their relationship is built on aspects beyond professional wrestling, and she doesn’t even acknowledge Zack Ryder as she knows Cardona solely as Matt.

“Zack Ryder is his thing. I don’t even know who Zack Ryder is because he’s always been Matt to me.”


The couple’s dynamic suggests a clear separation between Cardona’s wrestling persona and their personal lives. Despite Cardona’s belief in a potential return to WWE, Green’s sentiment regarding Zack Ryder remains unwavering.

While fans eagerly await Cardona’s potential WWE comeback and the prospect of reuniting with Green in the ring, it’s evident that Zack Ryder remains a distant memory in their household, with the focus firmly on their life together beyond the squared circle.
