At Game Changer Wrestling’s Zombie Walk event, Matt Cardona attacked GCW Champion Nick Gage, after Gage challenged Cardona to a fight via Twitter.

Cardona dressed in a hood, and moved around the ring in a similar manner to AEW star Jon Moxley, tricking GCW fans into the thinking Moxley had made his presence felt at the event. The fans voiced their displeasure to Cardona, after Matt revealed himself, and started chanting four letter words at the Impact star.

When asked about the chants by Busted Open Radio, Cardona told listeners:

"A lot of people think that I'm crazy, and maybe I am, but everyone is talking and I got the response that I wanted. It was so much fun. For so long, I was just 'white meat babyface.' To have these people...when the fans really don't like you or want you there, it was like a drug for me. I loved it... They were expecting Moxley. I did the [mannerisms] and they bought it! They think they are so smart, I'm doing [the mannerisms] and they bought it! How smart are you? I take off the mask and it's this weird reaction because the people who can see my face, they think it's me but the people behind think it's [Moxley]. It's cheers and boos and it was awesome."
