Matt Cardona (fka Zack Ryder in WWE) attended the red carpet premiere of Cody Rhodes’ upcoming documentary, “American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes”.

Cardona was interviewed by Denise Salcedo, who asked Cardona to tell a story about his friend Cody.

While telling the story, Cardona revealed that he and Cody used to hate each other during their early days in the WWE.

Below is what the former United States Champion said:

“I got a lot of Cody stories. My favorite I think is one of the first times we went to a theme park together, because at first we used to hate each other, then we found out we both like theme parks.

We organized a VIP tour of Universal Studios and I landed, before I moved to Orlando, I landed in Orlando, texted him, called him, no response.

I thought this was a Cody lie and then I was gonna go to Universal Studios and he wasn’t there. Turned out he lost his phone in one of the rides. So, it all worked out but, you know, Cody likes to embellish things. I call the ‘Cody lie’.

A lot of Cody lies out there and I thought this was one of them but it wasn’t.”

Cardona was then asked if he’ll return to WWE to join his wife Chelsea Green (who is one-half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions right now) and his friend Cody.

He said:

“Oh man, listen, I’m the hottest free agent, but listen, Cody has to finish the story. I gotta finish the story too. Tonight’s about Cody, Chelsea, but never say never. That’s what Justin Bieber said. To quote the great Justin Bieber, ‘Never say never’.”

Cody’s documentary will be released on Peacock on July 31st. You can watch the trailer below:
