Matt Cardona is a man who is in high demand. Following his victory at his first NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship Saturday night (February 12, 2022). He has a date set to take on Nick Aldis at the Crockett Cup in March. However, Cardona has other championship obligations to take care of before the fight.
Impact confirmed that Cardona is set to defend the Impact Digital Media Championship against Jordynne Grace No Surrender on February 19. Cardona became the internet champion through cheating in his initial battle against Grace. He was always prepared to utilize the steel chair to smack Grace, resulting in victory. The match is scheduled for a rematch, and Grace will take her place.

Cardona explained the reasons behind taking the Impact title’s web title. He was cheated out of taking home his place in the Impact World Championship. Management gave no apology or rematch, so Cardona took the tournament’s fate into his own hands. Without him, there’d be no wrestling vloggers, earning money taking part in video gaming, or creating online shows like Being the Elite. This is why it was logical to pursue an event like the Impact Digital Media Championship. Cardona dressed in Grace’s Thicc Mama Pump t-shirt was a fun feature as well.
