The current NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Matt Cardona has revealed he is going to be out of action for the near future due to suffering an injury.
The former WWE Superstar is currently enjoying a strong run right now on the independent scene where he has thrived in a variety of top promotions. Cardona is currently working with Impact Wrestling, while he is also making a big name for himself in other places such as Game Changer Wrestling and the NWA.
Unfortunately during his recent match against Blake Christian at GCW Downward Spiral on May 28, Cardona suffered an arm injury which led to him heading back to Orlando to get the situation looked at. It has now been confirmed that it is a serious issue, as he has torn his bicep.
Despite his brilliant performances as of late and his domination across a variety of different promotions, Cardona is now going to have to take some time on the shelf because his injury does require him to undergo surgery, which will then need to be rehabbed moving forward.
Cardona wrote: “Got a MRI today. Bicep is torn. Surgery needed. Will unfortunately need to cancel some dates.”
It is currently unclear the exact moment when Cardona will be medically cleared to return, and it is unknown what will be happening to his current NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship run. He was originally scheduled to defend the title at NWA Alwayz Ready against Nick Aldis on June 11, but that match is now unlikely to be taking place.
On top of that, Cardona currently holds the AIW Absolute and AIW Intense Championships, which are keeping him a busy man, but for now, his focus is going to be on returning to full health.
