Matt Cardona said:
“There’s so many people. I made a list and I don’t want to leave people off by accident. I look at it like I look at wrestling toys, you know? There’s just so many that I want to play with. Whether it’s guys that I’ve wrestled before, like Brodie Lee or Cody or Jericho. There’s so many that I haven’t wrestled before, like Darby Allin, The Young Bucks, and Kenny Omega. I’m already forgetting people, but that’s what’s so cool about it, and it’s a lot of fun to think about wrestling again.”
Matt Cardona on Cody Rhodes
Matt Cardona shares a great relationship with Cody Rhodes, who is a AEW star and the Executive Vice President. He spoke about the short-term deal that he had agreed with AEW and was always keen to join the promotion.
“The AEW deal – that happened because obviously that’s the place to be. For years, you hear, ‘This new promotion is coming’ and it never comes. AEW actually did come, and I was like, ‘I definitely want to go there.’ And luckily for me, it doesn’t hurt that I’m good friends with Cody Rhodes. He has quite a bit of stroke over there. To come out and do that month and a couple matches, plus the pay-per-view, was a lot of fun. Hopefully, I get to do it again with them really soon.”
