Matt Cardona discussed working in AEW , and he described why he believes that it is a great place. He was more than satisfied during his short time in AEW, though he only made a few appearances for the company.

Matt Cardona made his name as Zack Ryder in WWE before he came to AEW. Throughout his WWE career, he was a fan-favorite star. He won the Intercontinental Championship, the United States Championship and the RAW Tag Team Championship, too.

In a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Cardona discussed several topics. At one point, Cardona reflected on his AEW run, and he praised the environment at the company.

"I have a very great relationship with Cody [Rhodes] obviously- Tony Khan and everyone was super cool there, and I loved my cup of coffee there. It was awesome. I got a T-Shirt, I was on pay-per-view, I was on Dynamite. It was awesome. Everyone was super cool there and it's a great place. I mean, look at Wednesday night, the Wednesday Night War. Everyone's loving AEW. I love it too, but I'm not saying I won't go back. It's just- we only signed for that particular thing, and that was it"

Cardona was released by WWE in 2020 due to budget cuts releated to the COVID-19 pandemic. He appeared on AEW programming a few months later, and he worked two matches, one of which was on pay-per-view. Cardona worked as a friend of the Nightmare Family due to his real-life friendship with Cody Rhodes.

As of this writing, Cardona is a prominent member of the IMPACT Wrestling roster. He hasn't dismissed the possibility of coming back to AEW, but he does have a pretty solid position with IMPACT Wrestling.


Otherwise, Cardona continues to work on various projects, such as the Major Wrestling Figure Podcast and the "MC! True Long Island Story" show.
