Matt Cardona, formerly known as Zack Ryder during his time in WWE was eventually released by WWE in 2020, but he became the Indy God in the past few years, becoming a huge star. He even made his AEW Collision debut and has now commented on the same.

The 3/30 episode of AEW Collision started with the Rated R superstar issuing an open challenge for his AEW TNT Championship. Speculation ran wild among fans regarding who would step up to face him from the talented AEW roster. However, expectations were turned upside down.

In a surprising turn of events, Matt Cardona emerged to answer the challenge laid down by the former WWE superstar. Following an entertaining match, Adam Copeland retained the championship.

The Indy God took to Twitter and broke his silence on the matter, as Matt Cardona made it clear he was always ready and that fans popped for him and screamed ‘Holy s***’ during his entrance.


”I’ve been telling you I’m #AlwayzReady!

I got a HOLY S*** chant on my god damn entrance! ALL HAIL THE DEATHMATCHKING!

Nevertheless, the future status of Matt Cardona within AEW remains uncertain, so we will have to wait and see if he will make further appearances on AEW television.
