Matt Cardona signed a developmental contract with WWE on February 24, 2006. Fifteen years later, on April 15, 2020, Cardona was released from his WWE contract as part of budget cuts arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cardona recently took to Twitter to share a few of his pitches that never got approved by WWE management, and one of them centered around Hornswoggle. In August 2001, Cardona pitched to make Hornswoggle his “Mini Broski.” The former WWE Intercontinental wrote:
“Despite barely any television time, my YouTube show has over 4 million views and my T-shirt is one of the best selling items on WWEShop.com. The numbers don’t lie. People want to see me. Here is an entertaining way to get me on TV. Backstage on SmackDown I can approach Alicia Fox & Tamina. (Or any 2 divas) I can get to smooth talk one and when that doesn’t work, I’ll immediately start hitting on the other. Both want nothing to do with me, but I won’t take no for an answer. I’ll say something like, ‘Oh I get it. You only go on double dates. I’ll go find one of my Broskis.’ Later in the show, or the next week, I approach the Divas again and explain how I found my new Broski. The divas look disgusted and the camera pans down to reveal Hornswoggle. He is clean shaven, hair spiked, wearing a headband, and wearing sunglasses. The divas storm off. I have found my new Broski… Mini Broski. In the following weeks, I can teach Hornswoggle how to talk, he can help me win matches, and we will ENTERTAIN. Thanks for reading.”
