Matt Cardona Reveals Update on Surgery Recovery

Matt Cardona needed to have surgical procedure because of a torn bicep he suffered at GCW Downward Spiral, which was again in May, and fortunately there’s some excellent news on the restoration entrance. Cardona beforehand stated that he was instructed by docs he would doubtless be out of motion for 5 to 6 months, and through a dialog with Wrestling Shoot Interviews, Cardona stated he will not return to the ring till he’s at 100%, although if he completely needed to leap into the ring proper now, he might. That stated, he additionally revealed that whereas he isn’t 100% but, he’s virtually there, so a return would not appear too far out.

“I will not get back in the ring unless I’m 100%. Right now, if there was something going down with Ric Flair’s last match and they said, ‘Hey Matt, the card got shuffled, we need you to wrestle Ric Flair.’ Alright, I’d boot those boots on. I’d put that baby oil on and wrestle, but I’m not risking it for anything less than that until I’m 100%,” he stated. “We’re getting there, I’m almost 100%, but I’m not there yet,” Cardona stated.

Cardona was on a improbable run earlier than the damage, and he admitted that there was a time between when he discovered of the damage and surgical procedure itself that he questioned if he ought to get the surgical procedure, however a number of docs steered it, and now he is centered on simply getting higher and getting again within the ring.

“From the injury until I got the surgery. Once you get the surgery, it’s like, ‘Alright, let’s go. Let’s heal. Let’s rehab. Let’s fucking do this.’ That week in between, knowing I would have to relinquish all of my titles that I had collected over the past year, knowing that I’m in the height of my career. Most people, when they leave WWE, they get on that elevator going down. I was going up, baby. Reinventing myself, having fun, creatively fulfilled, making the most money ever. I was just hitting it everywhere. It was great. Wrestling every weekend, doing the podcast, winning titles, making money, making towns,” Cardona stated.

“For that all to go away over this unsafe worker Blake Christian, it was a little disappointing. It was the uncertainty. How long is this going to take? The doctors say five to six months, I want to be back in three, but what’s it really going to be? Also, do I want to get this surgery? Can I wrestle and fight through this? There was an NWA pay-per-view named after me and now I can’t wrestle on it. There were a lot of things on my mind, but I talked to enough doctors, they all suggested the surgery. Once I got the surgery, no more feeling bad, just getting better,” Cardona stated.
