    I hate that the pandemic had to happen for him to debut, Cardona should have come here several years ago in 2013, the same goes with Slater and Bret Meyers.

    this should've been on the pre-show, along with the Karate Man/Ethan Page mirror match Brian Myers vs Josh Alexander deserved to be higher on the card

    Im a fan of Matt Cardona. I firmly believe WWE squandered Zack Ryder when he was at his hottest in terms of popularity. That being said...this isnt a "mark out moment". It's surprising sure, but nothing to jump out of a seat about.

    Cardona (or Ryder in wwe) has been one of my favourite wrestlers for years, since like 10 years ago when he was Internet champ.

    Im gonna make a bold statement: Matt Cardona will be the longest reigning Impact World Champion in history. People who know know.... Matt Cardona was more popular than CM Punk and John Cena during their peak years. Go back and watch... he was cheered over The Rock even. When he was US Champ, Punk World, and Cena WWE, all 3 of them in the ring, fans unanimously cheered for Zack Ryder. And WWE buried him because 'they didnt want him to be successful' because they dont care about how good you are, only Vince and Johnny ace and maybe Paul heyman, Bruce pritchard also,,, get to choose. If you dont have a few of them on your side, and no matter what, if Vince doesnt approve, you will get buried.


    Check out the action figure collection maybe now add a impact set of matt and Brian

    The commentary team selling it like Cardona is a bonafide star. Just because he was in WWE does not make him a star. He's just another small fish in a small pond.

    good for him. AEW Has too many top stars and only 2 hours on Wednesday. I think matt would get caught in the shuffle on dark. Glad Impact and AEW are working like the old territories used too.

    Nice to to see him but let's be honest, Cardona is a mid card guy and Ace is a future star. Out of all the people to do the job why would Ace Austin even be an option? Isn't this the sort of thing the reason why Johnny Swinger has a job? Stupid stupid stupid move IMPACT, very fuckin stupid

    He will never be world champion, he just doesnt have that world champion look no matter how many times he changes his look or character.

    I'm still hyped about Striker being back on commentary, but everything about his reaction to Cardona was off. First, that's not the kind of guy you give a "holy s---" surprise reaction to. Second, why is he even a guy to "mark out" to? It'd have come across better as an excited welcoming. Something like "Heyyy! Matt Cardona is here! What an addition to Hard to Kill!"

    • Rock Ape

      Matt Striker is marking out because Zack Ryder/Matt Cardona is one of his best friends in real life and this is a new start for the both of them. It was a personal moment for him.

    LoL,Zack Ryder as Matt Cardona after number of Curt Hawkins as Bryan Myers.Matt Striker coming then all Matt names coming to impact zone.Another Special fact is he Matt Cardona keeping the ring name obviously suits with Matt Riddle who also is original Bro like Cardona says that word 'Bro' in entrance.He is 2nd robbie e in impact entrance by the way.
