Matt Cardona became the talk of the wrestling world on Saturday night, when he stepped into enemy territory and defeated Nick Gage for the GCW World Championship at the GCW Homecoming show.
After the match, Cardona joined Busted Open Radio to talk about the match and his experiences at GCW, where he reveals he was scared of the environment, and that he saw some messages from GCW fans wanting Nick Gage to ‘kill’ his fiancee, Chelsea Green.
“I’ll be honest, there was some fear. Like walking through that curtain? You can watch the replay on FITE, like I can’t even get through the curtain. There are fans just in my face, and luckily GCW had some security for me because I think someone would’ve took me out, or tried to. It’s impossible for me to get to the ring. I finally get there and you could just feel the genuine hate, and not like ‘oh this is a bad guy we’re supposed to boo’, like hate. And during the match, the atmosphere was exciting. People like, they just wanted me to die in there. I was getting tweets like, people wanted me to die and they wanted Nick to kill Chelsea. These are human beings really typing this on their phones or their computer, like ‘what the hell is wrong with these people?’”
Former champion Nick Gage is scheduled to face Chris Jericho in a no disqualification match tomorrow night (July 28) at AEW Fight For The Fallen.
Green recently made her return to IMPACT Wrestling, where she teamed with Cardona to defeat Brian Myers and Tenille Dashwood at Slammiversary.
