“He’s Ducking Me” – Matt Cardona Calls Out Jon Moxley After “Chicago Screw Job”

Matt Cardona Jon Moxley

Matt Cardona believes new AEW International Champion Jon Moxley is avoiding a rematch.

After spending well over a decade performing as Zack Ryder in WWE, Matt Cardona was released from the sports entertainment giant in April of 2020. Since that time, he’s made appearances in both AEW and IMPACT, and he’s also fully reinvented himself on the independent scene.

Cardona has held an number of independent wrestling championships since his WWE exit, and in July of 2021, he shocked the world when he defeated Nick Gage for the GCW World Title. His championship was short-lived, however, as he lost the title to Jon Moxley just 42 days later.

“GCW’s Gotta Book It, Or AEW” – Matt Cardona On Rematch With Jon Moxley

Speaking in a new interview with the Battleground Podcast, Cardona called out Moxley for “ducking him” and insisted that the two need to have a rematch down the line.

“He’s ducking me. Not only have I not had a [full] match with Moxley in GCW, I have [not received] a rematch for my GCW Championship after losing to Moxley. That was the Chicago Screw Job, I was screwed.

“I had a grueling one-on-one encounter with Frank The Clown, it took everything I had to beat Frank, one of the toughest competitors in the game. Just as I’m celebrating, thinking I had won, out comes Moxley, who screws me. I wasn’t ready. Even though I’m always ready, I wasn’t ready at that moment and I haven’t gotten a rematch against Mox or anyone for that title. I think GCW’s gotta book it, or AEW.
