One of IMPACT Wrestling’s newest stars is the former Zack Ryder, Matt Cardona. He made his debut for the promotion at Hard to Kill, defeating Ace Austin by disqualification.
Now, Cardona has revealed that he is not currently under contract. While speaking with Bill Pritchard of Wrestle Zone, he said that both parties are just going to see what happens. Here is the quote:
“So, I am not under a contract right now. We’re just seeing what happens, but so far, so good. I had a really good time this week. Whether it’s being in the locker room or being in the ring, I just really needed it. I needed to be in the ring—the Major Pod is awesome and it’s a creative outlet for sure—but I need to be designing gear or thinking about things for my matches. Wrestling is my first love and it’s something that I always grew up loving and being obsessed with. I had a pay-per-view debut and I wrestle on IMPACT this week, OK, so now I need more gear because I don’t like wearing the same gear over and over again. I’m already thinking for the future, and IMPACT definitely seems like my future for now.”
Matt Cardona went through a similar scenario during his time with AEW last year. He arrived on AEW Dynamite at the end of July and competed with the company until All Out in September. He wrestled on a limited appearance deal which then expired.
