Cardona wrestled mostly with his tag team partner Brian Myers/Curt Hawkins on the independent circuit and initially in WWE, where they won the WWE Tag Team Championship. After the team split in 2009, Cardona made appearances on WWE ECW. After ECW ended in 2010, he featured sparingly on WWE television.
In 2011, Cardona started publishing a YouTube web series called Z! True Long Island Story. This, and his usage of social networking websites, helped him in establish a niche fan following. Although used largely as a jobber to the stars, Ryder has had sporadic stints as a singles champion, capturing the WWE United States Championship and WWE Intercontinental Championship once each.
Hoeski, his first music single, peaked at No. 92 on the iTunes Pop Music chart in February 2013.
