NWA world’s champion Matt Cardona not too long ago participated in a digital signing with Okay & S WrestleFest and mentioned numerous pro-wrestling-related subjects, like his ideas on dropping the Intercontinental title to the Miz one evening after successful it at WrestleMania 32, and the way he appears like he’s a greater ambassador to the NWA model than its former champion, Trevor Murdoch. Highlights are beneath.
Says he wasn’t mad after dropping the I.C. title one evening after successful it at Mania 32:
No [I was not annoyed when I lost the Intercontinental Title one day after winning it]. Folks ask me this on a regular basis. I’m so glad I solely had it one evening as a result of everybody talks about it, everybody remembers it. I want that Hawkins [Brian Myers] and I misplaced the tag staff titles the subsequent evening [after WrestleMania 35], as a result of we have been the champions for like what? Two-and-a-half months. We did f*cking nothing with them. I want we’d have misplaced them the subsequent day. It will have been far more memorable.
On successful the NWA world’s title and the way he may promote the model higher than the earlier champion, Trevor Murdoch:
Okay, after I received this title from Trevor [Murdoch], it was prefer it was model new. Not a scratch, not a dent on it. When you have a look at this up shut, it’s all destroyed. I’ve had it for like two months as a result of I’m bringing it in all places. I’m truly defending it, I’m bringing it to conventions, signings, I’m bringing it in all places I’m going. Trevor, nice competitor, nice man. He doesn’t get booked until it’s the NWA so like what’s the purpose of being the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion? You’re not energetic on social media, you’re not doing common media, you’re not wrestling, you’re not selling, you’re not selling the model. So whether or not you’re keen on me or hate me, I at all times have this title on me so… I imply that’s why I’m the champ.
