Matt Cardona says he's innocent.
In recent weeks, Cardona has shared two videos on social media. In the first one, he brings back Zack Ryder and the "Z! True Long Island Story" show, and Persia Pirotta (Steph De Lander) steals the Internet Championship. He chases her into a limousine, and the camera cuts to show the vehicle exploding. The second video features The RyderTaker (Cardona) stalking De Lander and playing mind games with her.
Cardona posted a third video, and it begins with him being arrested. He is shown in a cell, and De Lander shows up. She is dressed like a police officer, but she tells Cardona that she's just doing it for OnlyFans. When Cardona asks her for the bail money, De Lander reveals she accidentally grabbed the wrong fanny pack, as she brought his gimmick money.
Thankfully, Cardona has one phone call, and he reaches out to his lawyer, "Smart" Mark Sterling, who tells him they have a lot of evidence against Matt. Sterling tells Cardona he'll be there, but De Lander clearly doesn't feel optimistic about Matt's fate.
Fightful will continue to monitor this saga and provide more information as it becomes available.
