Matt Cardona confirms torn biceps, will require surgery

The NWA World Heavyweight Champion suffered the injury at GCW Downward Spiral.

Matt Cardona is injured. 

The NWA World Heavyweight Champion posted to social media on Tuesday that a recent MRI confirmed he has a torn biceps.

"Got a MRI today. Bicep is torn. Surgery needed. Will unfortunately need to cancel some dates," Cardona wrote on Twitter

He suffered the injury on Saturday at GCW Downward Spiral in a match against Blake Christian. 

"I think I tore my bicep and I still finished the match and beat you!!!" Cardona wrote to Christian on Twitter following the event.  

Although the NWA has yet to comment on Cardona's injury, it will likely mean he will miss the promotion's upcoming Alwayz Ready pay-per-view on June 11. Cardona was scheduled to defend his title against the former champion, Nick Aldis, on the show. 

Cardona was also scheduled to make his debut for Warrior Wrestling on June 5 from Chicago. He had been booked for GCW No Signal in the Hills from Los Angeles on July 15 as well.
