During the latest episode of Chris Jericho’s Saturday Night Special podcast, he revealed that he told Matt Cardona — formerly Zack Ryder — to leave WWE years ago.

As quoted by Sportskeeda, Jericho said that the former superstar’s talent was being wasted in his old company. However, he also said that he has what it takes to become a big star in AEW.

“There comes a point in time when you can’t just be a punching bag anymore and he’s far too good for that. He looks like a million bucks, he knows how to work, he’s very solid in the ring. He’s very creative. He just needs some confidence. He just needs a chance and I’m really excited that Cody [Rhodes] and Tony [Khan] decided to give him a shot and I know I would love to work with him.”

Cardona — who was released from his WWE deal back in April — made his debut on the latest episode of Dynamite. He showed up to defend Cody Rhodes following his TNT Championship match, and the pair look set to be allies moving forward.

He could also feature in the title picture soon. As The Inquisitr previously reported, Rhodes has teased that he could take part in an open challenge match in the coming weeks. Fans can also expect to see more free agents appear on television, according to the executive vice president.


Jericho also said that Cardona will be a much different character in his new promotion. He compared the situation to Jake Hager — who went by the name Jack Swagger in the past — as he is no longer the same gimmick he used to be. The “We, the people” chant that got Swagger over followed him into AEW, only for Jericho to shut it down on live television.

Jericho told fans to forget about Ryder’s “Long Island Iced Z” persona that saw him become a huge fan favorite and viral sensation on social media some years ago. The legendary performer said that Cardona is “an a**-kicker” and the old version of him is “dead and buried.”

Wrestlers are known to have more creative freedom over their characters in AEW, and Jericho hopes that Cardona will be able to showcase some of his own ideas moving forward.

Many fans are of the opinion that he was held back in Vince McMahon’s promotion, but now that he’ll have more input, he could show his former employers what they’re missing.

Charly Jordan Sizzles In Lingerie Set With Thong Bottoms That Leave Little To The Imagination

Model Charly Jordan posted a new photo-set on Tuesday, August 4, to social media site Instagram that was taken during a road trip. The snaps featured the model in a skimpy lingerie set.

Charly wore a black bra with nude cups that featured a ruffled texture along the top. The cups were decorated in a black fishnet design while a strip of black fabric connected them across the chest and along Charly’s rib cage. The bottoms sat low on her pelvis and included a skinny string thong in the back that put her sculpted backside on display. The eye was also drawn to the model’s long, lean tummy and muscular legs.

The model wore a sheer black gown over the lingerie that included long sleeves and flowed to the floor. She kept the gown open to give her followers a better view of her stunning figure. Charly accessorized with a silver ring, a couple of gold bracelets, and a gold pendant necklace. She wore her long, blond tresses pulled away from her face in a half ponytail and let the bulk of her hair flow down her back. Charly held a green-and-white coffee mug in her hands for the snaps.

The photos were taken at Gooseberry Lodges in Zion, according to the geotag on the post. Charly posed in front of her hotel room, which featured a large bed and loft space in the background. In the first snap, she turned her side to the camera and placed one leg in front of the other while popping her hip to the side, which elongated her lower body and emphasized her pert booty. The gown flowed away from her body, revealing even more skin. Charly flashed a huge smile for the camera, appearing happy and relaxed.

In the second slide, Charly posed with her front facing the camera, giving her fans a full view of her figure and the lingerie. She placed a hand on her hip and gazed directly toward the photographer with her lips closed but smiling.
