Infamous deathmatch wrestler Nick Gage has a bone to pick with the internet’s favorite wrestling action figure collector, Matt Cardona.
Publicly, the conflict started when Cardona acknowlged about how fans have been lobbying for a match between the former Internet Champion and Gage. Cardona joked about he and Gage are the Major Detolf Kollectors, a rip off of Gage’s “Murder Death Kill” gang.

In response, Gage tweeted that he’d have no problem fighting Cardona.

After Cardona responded that he doesn’t have an issue with Gage, the GCW star made it clear that he doesn’t just want to face Cardona in a match; he wants to hurt the former WWE Intercontinental Champion.
Zack ryder whats good bud i aint heard from you did you figure it out or whats the deal the more i think about it the more i want to fight you and use my fists to cause physical harm to your face and body i have what they call "violent tendencies" my bad @TheMattCardona MDK

Cardona then tried to descalate the situation by saying that he has “no reason” to fight Gage and inviting the GCW World Champion to appear on his podcast.
Hey bro. I’m in Hawaii now. When I get home, I’ll watch your @DarkSideOfRing episode. I’ve heard good things. But there’s no reason for you and I to fight. Maybe you can be a guest on @MajorWFPod. We’ll plug whatever you want. #MDK #MajorDetolfKollectors https://t.co/m4nkqukGrP

If that wasn’t enough, Cardona offered a gesture of friendship with a picture of an “MDK (Major Detolf Kollectors)” shirt and an invitation to personally send him one.
Hey @thekingnickgage…DM me your address bro. I want to personally mail you one of the @majorwfpod #MDK shirts! Everyone else can order on @PWTees! #MajorDetolfKollectors https://t.co/xGvOlLXZ0Q pic.twitter.com/4XHMmxMY4u

This development seemed to solidify Gage’s pro-fighting stance, as he invited Cardona to give him the shirt in person. He named Atlantic City, New Jersey as the place and June 5 as the date. Game Changer Wrestling has an event, “ToS 666” that very day at Showboat Atlantic City.
