Kanye West’s latest fashion choice has drawn the attention of Matt Cardona.
West was recently pictured in Los Angeles with his new wife Bianca Censori. While many people were commenting on Censori’s revealing outfit, it was West’s that caught Cardona’s eye.
The former Zack Ryder took to social media to point out how much his knee-length boots resembled the kick pads favoured by a lot of modern wrestlers. It doesn’t help that he’s also wearing skintight trousers that resemble wrestling tights.
After noting the clothes, Cardona joked that Kanye might want to take on “the indy god.”
“Kanye is wearing kickpads now?! He looks like an Indy worker now. Is he coming after THE INDY GOD?!
“Be a man Kanye..c’mon don’t be scared…you’re running from Broski…that’s what I heard!!!”

Kanye West has angered several wrestling stars in the past
This isn’t the first time Kanye has been targeted by a wrestling star. In October last year, the rapper caused controversy when he accused Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs of being controlled by Jewish people.
He then doubled down by claiming Jews “blackball” people who “oppose their agenda”. The remarks led to his social media accounts being locked.
AEW star MJF soon made his feelings on the matter known. In a now-deleted tweet, he said he wasn’t shocked by West’s comments, but questioned why society does little to address antisemitism.
WWE’s Top Dolla also weighed in on the situation, asking why people pay any attention to West, calling him a “delusional lunatic.”
“I can’t believe y’all still care about Kanye, I been off the delusional lunatic for 7 years now…”

Months after making the comments, West appeared to attempt to row back on them in March, writing on social media that he “likes Jewish people again.”
