Matt Cardona proud of Chelsea Green following return to WWE, comments on trademarking ‘Zack Ryder’

Matt Cardona weighs in on Chelsea Green's return to WWE and comments on why he trademarked the 'Zack Ryder' name

Cardona jokes about Chelsea Green’s quick appearance in the Rumble. 

Among the 30 talents who competed in the 2023 women’s Royal Rumble was the returning Chelsea Green. She was eliminated in quick fashion by the winner of the match, Rhea Ripley

Green appeared on this week’s Monday Night Raw and was featured in a segment with Adam Pearce. Green’s significant other, Matt Cardona, weighed in on her return while being interviewed by MuscleManMalcolm

Cardona started off by joking about not seeing her in the match in reference to her quick elimination. He then expressed how proud he is of Green and said she needed to go back because she only had a ‘cup of coffee’ there the first go-round. 

She (Chelsea Green) was in the Royal Rumble? I missed it, I missed it… Maybe that’s when I went to go take a piss. Nah, I’m kidding. I’m super proud of Chelsea Green, super happy for her to go back to WWE. She needs to go back. I mean, she didn’t even have a cup of coffee there. She had the Keurig pot, didn’t even press ‘brew’, you know what I’m saying? She didn’t have a taste. She has to go now and she’s a superstar and now the whole world’s gonna know.

On January 14th, Cardona filed a trademark on the ring name ‘Zack Ryder’. He was asked why he opted to do that and said the following: 

Always ready. I’m a businessman. This isn’t ‘show friends’, it’s show business, as the great Scott Hall once said.

Cardona was present on the first live episode of NWA Powerrr. He’ll be challenging Tyrus for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title at ‘Nuff Said’.

On the next episode of Powerrr, both talents will be on opposite sides of a six-man tag to determine the stipulation for their pay-per-view match.
