Matt Cardona Provides Update On His Recovery From Torn Pec

Matt Cardona calls himself the “Stem Cell King” as he continues to recover from a torn pec.

Former GCW World Champion and NWA World Champion Matt Cardona has been out of action since he suffered a torn pec in April. He has continued to make appearances, and he has remained involved with GCW as their new General Manager.

Speaking on In The Weeds with Jeremy Lambert & SP3, Cardona provided an update on how he’s feeling as his recovery continues. (H/t Jeremy Lambert of Fightful for the transcription)

“I’m feeling great, all things considered,” Matt Cardona said. “It’s been a month and a half post-injury. I just came back from Cancun, Mexico. I got 400 million stem cells throughout my entire body. I guess you can call me the Stem Cell King. I’m taking this recovery very, very seriously. I’m not trying to rush to get back, but I’m also rushing to get back, if that makes sense. I need to get back out there. Luckily for me, I’ve built up, because of my work ethic and everything I’ve done; June is the busiest month I might have had in the past four years.

“Obviously, I’m not wrestling, but it’s all appearances. It’s wrestling shows, GCW, NWA, autograph signings, and conventions. Luckily, I had that to fall back on. This isn’t a vacation. This isn’t a six to eight-month vacation while I’m injured. I’m going to do whatever I can to keep my name out there.”

As of this writing, there is no word on when Matt Cardona will return to the ring. WrestleZone will provide more information as it becomes available.
