WWE has released a number of wrestlers over the last few years and some of them have gone on to reinvent themselves and find success outside of the company. Matt Cardona has managed to add a new chapter to his career after getting released in 2020, but he’s made it clear that he’s open to talking to WWE about a possible return.
The former Intercontinental Champion recently spoke to The Wrestling Classic about his history with WWE and he noted that he’s proud of his wife Chelsea Green who returned while also indicating that he believes he’ll make his way back someday as well.
“I would be lying if I said I never wanted to wrestle at Madison Square Garden again, Or I never wanted to have a WrestleMania moment again, or I never wanted to walk into Walmart and see my f**king Mattel Elite [action figure] on the shelves, of course. Yeah, of course, I do, but, I’m gonna find my path back there.”
“Chelsea Green’s back there now and when she got that offer, it wasn’t even discussed. She was a crucial part of my act on the indies, a crucial part. She had to go back. She did not have a cup of coffee there. She had the little Keurig pod put into the machine. You didn’t press brew, right? She had to go back and she’s absolutely killing it now. I am so proud of her to see her on Monday Night Raw. They bring her to SmackDown. Maybe she’ll have a WrestleMania match. I am so so proud of her, but it’s not my time to go back yet.”
“If I got a 203 number, if the 203 number called me right now, of course, I’d have a discussion. Anyone who says otherwise is fucking lying.”
