Matt Cardona is back.
The National Wrestling Alliance announced that Cardona will make his in-ring return at NWA 74 against a handpicked opponent.
Cardona has been sidelined since GCW Downward Spiral on May 28 when he suffered a torn bicep. He said doctors told him he would be sidelined for six months following surgery, but he was hoping to be ready in three. NWA 74 night one is scheduled for August 27.
