Former WWE Superstar Matt Cardona aka Zack Ryder fired back at a fan who tweeted about Vince McMahon. The former Intercontinental Champion spent quite a while in WWE. His WWE run got him to the Intercontinental Championship, later on, moving towards the tag team division. Although Vince McMahon never pushed the star to a higher stage, he continued to struggle for his spot.

Recently, he slammed Indy wrestler Effy for tweeting inappropriately related to his WWE tenure. Effy tweeted about Matt’s WWE tenure, where he pointed out Vince’s priority and investment during Matt’s WWE days was questionable at best. He mocked Matt, saying Vince McMahon never paid for the flights across the country.

In reply, Matt teased him about being a delusional and ignorant man. He made sure to point out that Effy simply amused him with his speculative take on his career.

Matt Cardona thanks Vince McMahon for his current progress

Matt Cordona had spent over a decade in the WWE. His WWE reign started with small matches until his push to the WWE Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 32. He leaped into the spotlight quickly and was a major attraction during the time.

His WWE career didn’t flourish immediately as he is experiencing things today. In the last few years, WWE didn’t feature him on-screen. In 2020, Vince McMahon released several WWE Superstars due to budget cuts, which included Matt.

However, the former GCW Champion gained the spotlight once again in 2021 when he won the GCW Championship. He proved his worth after his release in a major push as a heel as the GCW Champion.

Recently, he thanked Vince McMahon and the WWE team who let him perform and develop his skills. Although Matt couldn’t make a significant impact in WWE, his wrestling career has fired on all cylinders recently in other wrestling promotions.

 

Recently, he encountered Impact Champion Moose in the ring, where he accidentally attacked Chelsea Green. Next month, he will compete in a triple threat match for the Impact World Championship against Moose and W. Morrissey aka Big Cass at Hard to Kill pay-per-view.
