Since leaving WWE back in 2020, Matt Cardona (Zack Ryder) has undergone a complete renovation of his character, being almost unrecognisable from the man he was during his time in WWE.
Ryder became popular during his WWE run due to his internet show Z! True Long Island Story, which featured the adventures of Zack Ryder and several other reoccurring characters.
In recent months, Cardona has aligned with fellow former WWE star Steph De Lander (Persia Pirotta), with the two of them taking over the independents.
Today, Cardona filmed a return episode of Z! True Long Island Story, featuring the return of the Zack Ryder and Persia Pirotta characters.
The episode saw Pirotta steal Ryder’s Internet Championship, before Ryder chased her into a limousine, with the episode ending with the limo blowing up, footage from Vince McMahon’s limo explosion from 2007.
Cardona recently spoke about the conditions for his potential return to the company, which you can see here.
Here are results from the May 15 episode of WWE Raw:
Shinsuke Nakamura def. The Miz
It was announced Liv Morgan had suffered an injury and the scheduled Women’s Tag Team Championship match was cancelled
Mustafa Ali won a battle royal to become #1 contender for Gunther’s Intercontinental Championship at Night of Champions
Becky Lynch returned and cut a promo on Trish Stratus, challenging her to a match at Night of Champions
