Matt Cardona on Fooling GCW Fans Into Thinking He Was Jon Moxley

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar and current independent star Matt Cardona recently appeared on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio. The former United States Champion in WWE discussed a number of topics during the interview, including his recent GCW appearance.

Cardona appeared after the GCW Zombie Walk main event, attacking Nick Gage. Gage and Cardona have been going back and forth on social media for some time, and this was the start of their actual feud in ring.

Matt Cardona appeared as a ‘druid’ type of character, doing Jon Moxley mannerisms and hitting the Moxley Paradigm Shift finisher. Cardona then lifted his hood to reveal that he of course isn’t actually the former AEW Champion.

“A lot of people think that I’m crazy, and maybe I am” Matt Cardona began Busted Open Radio. “But everyone is talking and I got the response that I wanted. It was so much fun. For so long, I was just ’˜white meat babyface.’”

“To have these people’¦when the fans really don’t like you or want you there, it was like a drug for me. I loved it” Cardona added, talking about the hostile GCW crowd that he calls the ‘GCW Universe.’

“They were expecting Moxley. I did the [mannerisms] and they bought it!” Cardona said gleefully. “They think they are so smart, I’m doing [the mannerisms] and they bought it! How smart are you?”

“I take off the mask and it’s this weird reaction because the people who can see my face, they think it’s me but the people behind think it’s [Moxley]. It’s cheers and boos and it was awesome” Matt Cardona concluded.
