Matt Cardona Responds To CM Punk After Twitter Joke
Wrestling fans may remember a few weeks ago that Matt Cardona found himself in a bit of hot water after a joke hr tweeted regarding the situation surrounding Sasha Banks and Naomi walking out of “WWE Monday Night Raw” the night before. The tweet drew the attention of several wrestlers, most notably future AEW World Champion CM Punk.
Cardona was recently asked about his thought process behind the tweet, and Punk’s reaction to it
“It was a fun tweet,” Cardona said. “I don’t know what part of the tweet was more obvious that it was a joke, a) that I was going to put my neck brace on Johnny Ace’s table, or b) that I was talking about the respect of the Internet Championship. It was a joke. I still think it was funny. If people don’t like it, I mean that’s life. You can’t please everybody. You’re always going to have a hater or a critic. That’s life, it is what it is, and I wasn’t going to engage in some Twitter back and forth with anybody over it. I thought it was a funny tweet. I didn’t delete it. I thought it was pretty clever.”
Cardona was also asked about his relationship with Punk. The two notably came to WWE around the same time in 2005 and worked together on several occasions before Punk left WWE in January of 2014 “We always had a good relationship,” Cardona said. “We used to ride together. I haven’t talked to him in a while, but I have nothing bad to say about Punk.”
