Matt Cardona – ‘I have not been offered a full-time gig by WWE or AEW’

On a recent edition of the ‘Busted Open Radio’ podcast, former WWE superstar Matt Cardona shared insights on his career trajectory and explained why he is not currently signed to a full-time contract with a major wrestling promotion.

You can watch some highlights from the podcast below:

On why he hasn’t signed with a major company yet: “Honestly, because I didn’t get a full-time gig from WWE or AEW.”

On his goal when released by WWE: “All I know is that when I was released, my goal wasn’t, ‘What can I do to get back to WWE?’ Or, “What can I do to get AEW to notice me?” It wasn’t to prove people wrong, it was to prove myself right and prove my fans right and work really hard, and I feel like that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the last four years.

About his wife Chelsea Green: “When I see Chelsea (Green, Cardona’s wife) and she’s wrestling on Raw or WrestleMania, of course I’m happy for her, but then I also think, ‘S**t, I wish I was there too. ”

Cardona is currently out due to a torn pectoral injury. He recently announced himself as the new general manager of GCW.
