Matt Cardona: AEW's Danhausen Is One Of The Hottest Things In Wrestling Today
Cardona loves that Danhausen
Love himhausen, hate himhausen, or just don’t understand himhausen, it’s undeniable that Danhuasen has caught lightning in a bottle to become one of the hottest acts in all of wrestling.
With his cult status reaching fever pitch as ROH went on hiatus, AEW made the decision to sign Danhausen and pay him all the moneys, with Matt Cardona putting over the unique star during the Headlocked Panel at C2E2:
“Let’s give Danhausen some credit here, firstly, he’s one of the hottest things in wrestling today,” started Cardona. “I have never, ever seen a Danhausen match, and I think most of his fans have not, do you know what I’m saying? I bet a lot of his fans have not seen an actual match,” he said. “It’s just this f****** Danhausen guy and all his videos and his merch, and his aura.
“He has figured it out. At these conventions he is always killing it, he always has a huge line, he appeals to so many different people, and he is unique. I don’t know how he came up with this, but he has figured it out.”
High praise indeed coming from Cardona, who is currently one of the hottest acts on the independent scene. The ‘internet champion’ continued, noting how vital social media is in getting over a wrestling persona and how Danhausen has picked up the ball and ran with it:
“You’ve just got to find something,” Matt Cardona pointed out. “Everyone can be a great wrestler, you have to find a way to stick out. Especially now with social media, it’s great because like Twitter, YouTube, it’s free, so it’s like free publicity. But, everyone has it. So you have to figure out your way to figure out your niche. Someone like Danhausen, f***, he found it. I’ve never seen a Danhausen match, but I love Danhausen, I am a fan of Danhausen match without ever seeing him wrestle.”
