This revelation surfaced during a recent Q&A session on social media, where Cardona responded to a fan´s query about his ideal, yet unrealized, opponent.
Cardona´s career, spanning over a decade and a half in the Stamford-based WWE, is notable for its impact and longevity. Despite a brief stint in AEW, he is primarily recognized for his significant contributions on the independent circuits.
His journey in WWE, which began in 2007, was notably influenced by his early collaboration with Adam Copeland. As an "Edgehead" in the La Familia stable, alongside Curt Hawkins, Cardona played a pivotal role in several of Copeland´s victories, including helping him retain the World Heavyweight Championship multiple times.
Gratitude to Copeland
This early association with Copeland not only provided a solid foundation for Cardona´s career in WWE but also offered him invaluable learning experiences. He has openly expressed gratitude towards Copeland, crediting the WWE Hall of Famer for opening doors and shaping his path in professional wrestling.
In a reflective moment, Cardona shared, "Without Edge opening the door for us, I wouldn’t be here today." The relationship between Cardona and Copeland is a testament to the mentorship and camaraderie that exists in professional wrestling.
With Copeland´s current successful run in AEW, fans are intrigued by the possibility of these former acquaintances facing each other in the ring. Such a matchup would not only be a dream come true for Cardona but also a nostalgic and electrifying moment for wrestling enthusiasts worldwide.
This potential bout holds the promise of blending experience, legacy, and the thrill of competition, offering a captivating spectacle in the world of professional wrestling.
