WWE News: Colt Cabana on his relationship with CM Punk, independent wrestling and more
Colt Cabana was recently on Busted Open with Doug Mortman and Dave LaGreca, where he talked about his career and much more. Among the notable points was his story about being an independent wrestler trying to make it in the WWE, and also his relationship with CM Punk, who he reportedly fell out with earlier this year.
Regarding his WWE run, he joked that he would rather call it more of a “slow jog” or a “brisk walk”. He said that he had championed the independent scene and that he had been in the independent scene travelling the world for 8 years before he signed up with the WWE.
Cabana said that when he first started in 1999, he never thought he’d have been signed by WWE and that his hope was to be an independent wrestler forever. Cabana proceeded to say that when he returned to the independent scene in 2009, his goal was to not only earn a good living but to show WWE what they missed out on.
Colt Cabana’s speciality is being a comedic wrestler. On comedy in wrestling, Cabana said that he believed comedy was just meant to help spice things up.
Regarding his supposed falling out with CM Punk, he said:
“I would just say don’t believe what you read on the internet”.
Although he denies it, in his past podcast around the time of UFC 203 (where CM Punk made his MMA debut), Cabana had addressed CM Punk’s first UFC fight by saying “I saw the fight, and let’s just leave it at that”. He made no mention of Punk’s name, hinting that he did indeed have a falling out with him.
Colt Cabana’s Art Of Wrestling Podcast was the platform that CM Punk used to tell the entire story at length as to why he walked out of WWE. You can listen to part 1 here
