But that didn’t stop Cardona to get over with the WWE Universe. In 2011 Matt Cardona used the power of social media to get over with the crowd. However, back in 2020, the wrestler was eventually fired by McMahon.

Former GCW champion took to Twitter to thank his previous employers. He thanked Vince McMahon and WWE for giving him the tools and strength to “carry” independent wrestling in 2021.

Some fans speculate that this will eventually, end up in WWE signing the superstar. But WWE is not always interested in hiring 35-year-old plus superstars.

However, this is not the first time when Matt cleverly mocked the chairman of WWE, last year he dressed up as Vince McMahon for his fight when he was in GCW.
