“Obviously there’s no good time to get hurt in wrestling,” Cardona said. “I think that in any sport, but this is definitely not a good time. I released this video four years after I was released from the WWE, with all the things I’ve done. And then, boom, the same day, I knew – My sternum is torn… Just pulling someone over the top rope. That doesn’t happen, does it? I felt it right away. And then I hoped I didn’t need surgery, but it did. It’s been two weeks that the tendon has been repaired. And now it’s just recovery, rest. But Matt Cardona is not resting.’ Cardona said that in the first 48 hours after undergoing surgery for his lacerated chest, he was already on the phone and emailing promoters.

And I wasn’t going to just take three, four, five, six months off. Not really. So I’m still gonna make cities.” Cardona then joked that Cody Rhodes “ruined” wrestlers’ ripped pecs based on the gruesome bruises Rhodes displayed during his match at Hell in a Cell 2022. “Unless your pecs look just like this If you look bad like Cody’s or worse, you can’t do that on social media,” Cardona said. with Cody’s.”
