He has a list. While WWE and AEW are the most dominant wrestling promotions in the United States, there are only so many spots on either roster. At some point, there are going to be wrestlers who thrive elsewhere and those wrestlers have their own careers outside of the major promotions. Many of them are former stars of those promotions though, and now one of them has said what it would take for him to return.

Former WWE Intercontinental and United States Champion Matt Cardona was a guest on the Hump podcast and was asked what it would take to get him to return to WWE. Cardona said that he would certainly take a phone call from WWE and have a conversation with them, saying it would take “cash and creative” to get him back into the company. He went on to say that he does not want to be just another guy on the roster, as he already “did that”. Cardona left WWE in 2020 and has wrestled in a variety of promotions since, including Impact Wrestling and AEW.
Cardona had a heck of a run in WWE. Check out what he did there over the years:
Opinion: It’s hard to imagine Cardona coming back to WWE but at the end of the day, he has done quite a bit to change his career since leaving WWE. He is a different kind of star now, though it doesn’t make a difference if the promotion does not see him like that. There is the chance that he could show up there again, and it could be rather interesting to see what what the new Cardona could do there.
