Matt Cardona On Possibility Of GCW Running Shows At MSG Or Barclays Center, Effy In ROH & More

Matt Cardona recently spoke with the folks from Fightful for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, the IMPACT Wrestling star and former WWE Superstar spoke about his work for the Game-Changer Wrestling (GCW) promotion, including how he helped sell out the Hammerstein Ballroom for the company’s show in New York, if he thinks GCW could run shows at Madison Square Garden and/or the Barclays Center, as well as his thoughts on Effy appearing in Ring Of Honor (ROH).

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.

On helping sell-out the Hammerstein Ballroom for GCW: “Brett Lauderdale, you’re welcome. I’m not saying that I single-handedly sold out the Hammerstein Ballroom, but I am saying If I never came to GCW, they would not have even attempted to run the Hammerstein Ballroom. That’s what I’m saying.”

On if he thinks GCW could run a show at Madison Square Garden or Barclays Center: “Baby steps. But I’m a big dreamer, big thinker—MSG? Barclays Center? Nassau Coliseum? I don’t know. The ECW Arena. They’ve never done the ECW Arena, have they? If they did, not when I was there. So it doesn’t count. I’ve never done the ECW Arena.”

On his thoughts on Effy appearing in ROH: “Because I’m involved. Really they want Effy involved, then I’ll tweet about Effy, and then maybe someone will be like, ‘Include Ring of Honor in that tweet,’ and I’ll be like, ‘No.’ Because I just tweet what I want. Because I’m the Internet Champion, two times, I beat Effy. Can we wrap this up?”
