Matt Cardona On Busted Open Radio

Matt Cardona: “After My AEW Dynamite Debut, I Didn’t Even Want To Check Social Media”

One of the newest additions to the men’s singles division in All Elite Wrestling, Matt Cardona, recently joined the gang at SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio for an in-depth interview discussing his WWE departure as part of the massive COVID-19 cuts made in April, joining many of his friends in AEW and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On whether or not he has a chip on his shoulder coming into AEW after being released by WWE: “Not really, because what’s the point to live in the past and be [bitter]? Of course, I recognize what has happened before, and obviously you know, there’s a little fuel there. There I don’t like, ‘Pour me, I wish I could’ve done this, I should’ve done this.’ You can’t change the past anyway. So all I’m thinking about is Dynamite, next week’s Dynamite, over and over and over. Just the future, because looking back, it’ll get you nowhere.”

On if he wants to prove people wrong or prove his supporters right: “The proving the people wrong, like that’s going to happen, right? But I just want to prove all of the supporters right. And I know that sounds like, ‘Bleh.’ It almost makes me want to puke even saying it but it’s true. I just want to prove to people who supported me. I can’t deal, I can’t waste time with the haters. Even like, you know, last week after Dynamite I didn’t even want to check social media. Because of course, there’s going to be some trolls in there. I knew it was a great night, I don’t need to read a bunch of people hating on it, you know what I’m saying? So, I’m more concerned about the people who care about me, who want me to succeed, and I’m going to back it up and, you know, deliver it just for them.”
