Matt Cardona brought his quest for molten hot heel heat to last night’s Wrld on GCW event at Hammerstein Ballroom for his match against Joey Janela, including a very interesting choice for ring attire.
Cardona made his ring entrance wearing a plaid vest, emblazoned with the words ‘F**k Mick Foley’ on the back and reportedly also shouting the expletive, near sacrilege to the fans in attendance at Hammerstein Ballroom.
“Hello everyone, it’s The Hardcore Legend Mick Foley addressing the Matt Cardona situation. Matt took a shot at Mrs. Foley’s baby boy last night with his interesting choice of ring attire. While I appreciate the GCW fans flipping him off on my behalf, while I appreciate my friend, The Savage Gentlemen, whose wedding I officiated, that is real, wanting to do battle with him on my behalf.
“The truth is, from a personal standpoint, I was happy for him. Yeah, it made me laugh because I felt like Matt was done wrong in WWE. He reached for that brass ring, grabbed it, and was asked to return it. Ultimately, everyone who leaves a major company has a choice to make when they hit the independent scene.
“And that choice is, ‘Do I just do the same things I did, the things that I was known for, or do I reinvent myself?’ I call that the Drew McIntyre route, the road less traveled. That is what Matt Cardona has done. He’s completely reinvented himself and in doing so has become one of the most enjoyable and valuable assets on the wrestling scene. Knowing that I’m playing just a small part in that reinvention, a tiny part, that makes me happy, and in conclusion, fuck Matt Cardona.”
Cardona received a strong reaction from the crowd who happily jeered and flipped him off for amongst other offenses, besmirching the name of wrestling legend and fellow Long Island native, Foley.
Cardona went on to win the match against Janela with interference from Meyers (who speared Janela through a table) with a subsequent beatdown of Janela prevented by Sean Waltman (fka X-Pac in WWE) who hit Cardona with an X-factor to close the angle.
