During a recent appearance on “Busted Open Radio”, Matt Cardona commented on the recent “The WRLD On GCW” pay-per-view event and how much fun he was having, trying to keep the smile off his face, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On his experience at The WRLD On GCW: “There were times in that match where I just had to turn away from the camera because I felt like I was smiling because I was having so much fun in there. I said it last time, Mikey Whipwreck brought me to ECW One Night Stand 2005, and I’ve always wanted to wrestle in that building. I never thought I would have that opportunity. To be there it was everything I hoped it would be and more.”
On his parents being at the event: “My parents were there, I don’t think they necessarily understood why everyone was booing me. I also promised my mom there would be no blood, and of course, I got hard wayed in the front and the back, bleeding from my nose and the back of my head. So, sorry mom. But what a night, I loved it.”
On the fan reaction to him: “I had made a t-shirt, ‘If Cardona wins we riot,’ and then someone had the sign. People thought I planted that sign, like no. Fans really brought that, it was just great that I had the shirt made playing off that Cena sign from so many years ago. But when I walked into that building, it was instant goosebumps, it was just a special, special night.
“Because I am such a diehard ECW fan, so that building meant so much to me. I never got to go there for the real ECW shows, but like I said, I saw One Night Stand. I feel like that was the final ECW show. That night was just incredible, but for me, this show at the Hammerstein was even more incredible. Because I got the little tease in 2005, just being a fan hoping one day I get to wrestle there. And then I finally did it and it was everything I thought it would be.”
