Matt Cardona, The Former Zack Ryder, joined AEW recently and since his debut, fans and analysts have been wondering about his current deal. SEScoops is reporting that Cardona is on a 5 appearance deal with AEW.
Cardona was let go from WWE in April as pat of their massive round of layoffs and furloughs. He has spent the last 3 months on the sideline while waiting for his contractual 90-day non-compete clause to expire.
Cardona debuted on last Wednesday’s Dynamite an assisted TNT Champion Cody Rhodes fend off an attack from the Dark Order. It is being reported that Cardona’s deal is a try-out to see if AEW President Tony Khan thinks there is a spot of the roster for him.
