Matt Cardona On The Crowd Reaction At GCW Homecoming

Matt Cardona was recently the guest on Busted Open Radio. During the show Cardona talked about the crowd and their reaction at GCW Homecoming.

“I’ll be honest, there was some fear, like walking through that curtain, you can watch the replay on FITE, like I can’t even get through the curtain and there are [already] fans in my face. And luckily, GCW had some security for me because [otherwise] I think someone would have took me out or tried to.”

“You could just feel the genuine hate, and not like, ‘Oh, this is a bad guy we’re supposed to boo.’ Like hate, and during the match, the atmosphere was exciting, like people, they just wanted me to die in there. Like I was getting tweets like people wanted me to die. And then when I win, bro, I mean, you saw the video, they were just throwing stuff, some bottles, full bottles, empty bottles, someone threw a f—— pizza cutter, like Jesus, come on. And like I tried to enjoy it, but I was genuinely like concerned, like this isn’t stopping.”

“I didn’t know what was gonna be thrown. I had no idea, but I was in there as long as I could, I tried to get the money shot with the title, and then the GCW security’s like, ‘Yo, we gotta go, we gotta go out the front, run out the front.’ So they brought me out, and fans were still chasing me out through the front, through the Showboat Casino, it was wild.”here to listen to the full show.
