Matt Cardona is still Alwayz Ready.
On May 31, Cardona confirmed that he suffered a torn bicep at GCW Downward Spiral against Blake Christian. He said that he would need surgery for the injury.
Cardona was set to defend the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship against Nick Aldis as NWA Alwayz Ready on June 11.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Cardona said he'll be there in some capacity.
"The doctor is suggesting surgery, which I will be getting on Tuesday, but there is no way I'm not coming to a pay-per-view named after me. I will be there. I don't know what exactly is going to happen and what exactly is going to go down. I'm going to be there, I'll have the Ten Pounds of Gold with me. It's really Billy's [Billy Corgan] decision on what he wants to do," he said.
Cardona continued by saying, "Part of me wanted to tape it up and work through it, but I want to be doing this for a long time. It's probably better that I get it taken care of right now. There is no good time to get hurt and this certainly isn't it. NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, having a pay-per-view named after me, just being the King of Indies, the Deathmatch King, we have (IMPACT) Slammiversary coming up. It's not a good time to get hurt, but shit happens."
It is unknown how long Cardona will be out of action or how NWA will handle the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship situation.
