IMPACT Wrestling and NWA star Matt Cardona has called out an indie star for being an ‘unsafe worker’ in a recent interview.
Matt Cardona recently announced he would make his in-ring return at NWA’s 74th Anniversary show. Speaking to ComicBook to promote the upcoming event, Cardona called out top indie star Blake Christian for being an unsafe worker:
“He’s stiff. He’s an unsafe worker. This is legit. This should make all the dirt sheets. This should be the clickbait headline. Matt Cardona said, ‘Blake Christian is stiff and unsafe.'”
“This guy legitimately tried to tear my bicep off of my bone. Unbelievable. He should be banned from the business for what he tried to do.”
Back in May, Cardona suffered a torn bicep injury while wrestling Blake Christian at GCW’s Downward Spiral. Cardona would confirm the injury a few days later on social media, announcing surgery would be needed:
Got a MRI today. Bicep is torn. Surgery needed. Will unfortunately need to cancel some dates.

Cardona faced Christian one final time at June’s GCW Cage of Survival, where he lost in just over a minute after receiving a chair shot and a Superkick.
Matt Cardona is currently scheduled to appear at Sunday’s GCW Homecoming Weekend where he and Chelsea Green will renew their wedding vows. Blake Christian will also appear on this show, teaming up with Jordan Oliver and Nick Wayne against the Second Gear Crew – 1 Called Manders, Mance Warner, and Matthew Justice.
