During the broadcast of Impact Wrestling Hard To Kill 2021 Matt Cardona, known as Zack Ryder in WWE, made his debut in the company to face Ace Austin.
Ace Austin stepped into the ring and wanted to be added to the triple threat for the Division X Championship since he had recently won the torneo Super X Cup at Genesis 2021. However, Scott D’Amore came out and offered him a different opponent. Immediately, Matt Cardona stepped into the ring.
The fight lasted brief minutes because Madman Fulton interrupted the fight to defend his partner. Cardona took the victory via disqualification and the segment ended with a Radio Silence to Fulton post fight.
It should be noted that the commentator Matt Striker, highlighted that Cardona could be in Impact just for one night or I could continue to participate in the future.
UPGRADE: According to a report from Fightful Select, Cardona wouldn’t be in Impact Wrestling for long. He could participate in his next series of television recordings and in the future the situation between both parties will be seen.
