Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Matt Cardona spoke about death match wrestling and preparing to wrestle death match legend Nick Gage.
“Bill Demott told me when I was in Deep South Wrestling that wrestling’s like, there’s all these different flavors of ice cream,” Cardona said. “And death match wrestling, I respect the hell out of it. It’s not for me, it’s not my style. But you know, I dropped him with that DDT, I sliced my arm open on the glass. I’m doing the offensive move. So there’s no doubt it’s dangerous, there’s no doubt its real. Like I was walking to the back and there’s just blood dripping down. I was like ‘where’s this coming from? Oh, it’s coming from me.’
“This is legitimate. Am I crazy for getting involved in this? Probably? Am I afraid? I would be lying if I said I wasn’t afraid. But I’ve been through way worse than a death match with Nick Gage or insert wrestler. He says he was locked up, you know I was locked up in WWE for a decade. I’ve done that. I beat cancer twice, I’m pretty sure I can survive Nick Gage.”
