Matt Cardona Claims He Will Remain The ‘Indy God’ Until WWE Return


Matt Cardona’s flirtations with fans regarding a potential WWE return continue post-WrestleMania 39 as the former Zack Ryder dubbed himself the “Indy God” in a recent interview with Fightful.

Cardona claimed that he will remain the God of the independent circuit until he is finally back in WWE.


Cardona’s wife, Chelsea Green returned to WWE at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view this past January. Green was recently hospitalized due to “a severe stomach bug & a distended gall bladder.”

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On his Oceanic Championship reign: “I defended it this past Friday [March 17th] — New York City, GCW. I squashed Homicide with the help of my new muscle, Steph de Lander. She’s not here tonight because Brett was too cheap to fly her into Toronto. I’m wrestling Sexxxy Eddie tonight. He’s not worthy of the Indy God bringing my titles to ringside.”

On how one becomes an ‘indy god’: “When I go back home, when I go back to World Wrestling Entertainment, then the spot will be available. For right now, there’s only one God, and it’s me.”
