Matt Cardona Doesn't Own The Rights To Zack Ryder's Song 'Hoeski' If He Did, He'd Re-Release It

Matt Cardona reflects on Zack Ryder's hit song "Hoeski."

In the early 2010s, Zack Ryder became a phenomenon in the WWE Universe. Z! True Long Island Story revolutionized how wrestlers use the internet to better market themselves, even wrestlers within the WWE machine. Eventually, Zack Ryder would use the momentum he garnered from the web series to win his first-ever WWE United States Championship and even release his own song.

"Hoeski," a track about romance gone wrong, was released a decade ago. Matt Cardona has now said he would love to re-release the track, but unfortunately, it's not his decision to make as WWE owns the song.

"Believe it or not, this is the 10-year anniversary for Hoeski this week," said Cardona to Love Wrestling's Spencer Love. “Listen, I don't own the rights to that song. If I did, I would definitely re-release it. But it's not up to me…. Yeah, it's all WWE stuff. If they want to re-release it, please! But yeah, unfortunately, it's not my decision."
