Matt Cardona outlines his decision to leave WWE

Cardona recently spoke to SportsKeeda, where he revealed that he was trying to get away from that look and gimmick during his days in WWE. Here is what he said:

‘The ’˜woo, woo, woo,’ the headband, the sunglasses, it’s dead. And I was trying to get away from that while I was Zack Ryder in WWE, but you can’t write the show.

‘So if I’m trying to be more serious, but you are booked to be not so serious, it is what it is. That’s why when I was let go, I was like, ’˜Oh, my god.’ Not that there were any handcuffs on, but the handcuffs were gone, and I was able to become the new version of me, whatever that was going to be,’

Cardona is currently working for IMPACT Wrestling as well as making several independent dates, including his notable run in GCW last year.
