Matt Cardona faced the inevitable in 2020 when he was released from WWE. However, he embarked on a remarkable journey thereafter, emerging as a prominent figure in the independent wrestling scene, earning himself the moniker of the “Indy God” and captivating audiences with his performances.

Regrettably, recent developments have cast a shadow over his thriving career. Cardona is now slated to undergo surgery following a debilitating injury—a torn pectoral muscle, to be precise.

The anticipation for wXw Germany’s Drive of Champions show in June was palpable, yet an unexpected twist emerged regarding the event’s talent lineup. A tweet from the promotion confirmed that Cardona would be absent from the roster due to his injury.

Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp further shed light on the matter via Twitter, revealing that various promoters had been apprised of Cardona’s condition. According to Sapp, Cardona himself relayed the news of his injury and subsequent need for surgery to these promoters.


“Several promoters have noted that Matt Cardona has informed them he’s suffered a torn pec and will require surgery. Sending our best to @TheMattCardona. Heal up soon.”

This setback signifies a hiatus for Cardona, who must now prioritize his recovery over his in-ring endeavors. Both fans and wrestling promotions will undoubtedly keep a keen eye on Cardona’s progress, eagerly awaiting his triumphant return to action.
