Cardona (f.k.a Zack Ryder in WWE) is engaged to Green. In June 2020, WWE asked Green if the company could shoot a SmackDown segment with Mandy Rose and Otis at their pool. Cardona, who received his release two months earlier, rejected WWE’s request.
“See, bro, that’s huge. You and I laugh, ‘What do you mean we can’t use the pool?!’ You and I laugh… Bro, they [WWE] never forget stuff. If you look at that relationship [Chelsea Green and WWE] and pinpoint, ‘Okay, when did the problems for me start?’ it’s the second he didn’t let them use the pool. Now they were gonna take it out on her. Bro, we talked about it when it happened! When it happened, we said, ‘She’s done.’ The fact that he would not let them use the pool, they’re gonna cut her loose, right?”

Vince Russo thinks Chelsea Green and Matt Cardona did the right thing
Matt Cardona said on his Major Wrestling Figure Podcast (H/T Wrestling Inc.) that he was “shaking with anger” after WWE’s pool request. He was particularly annoyed due to the fact that they asked Chelsea Green if they could use the pool instead of him.
Vince Russo agreed with Cardona’s stance and said anyone would have done the same in his situation.
“Matt said what any of us would have said. He said, ‘What? Are you out of your minds?’ And that’s what any of us would have said.”
