Colt Cabana had not been seen on AEW programming for quite some time now. This is the case for both Dynamite and Dark episodes. Fans have been wondering the reason behind his absence as well. He was also blasted recently.

It was previously reported that Cabana was expected to be cut before several members of the rosters spoke up against it. This was said to be due to his bitter relationship with CM Punk. Numerous talent “went to bat” for Cabana, as he is well-liked backstage.

Even recently, CM Punk cut shoot promo on Adam Page, which made him have backstage heat in AEW. It was believed that Cabana’s status is the source of a lot of breaking points in AEW.

While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience podcast, Jim Cornette blasted Colt Cabana for being useless and for creating backstage issues in AEW.


“It’s over Colt Cabana? I can understand if CM Punk had come in and suddenly laid fire or diminished or sent to the side Bryan Danielson [sic], or even Jericho, he has got name value or some major… even Jungle Boy, cause they liked him ’cause he got cute hair,” Cornette said. “That would have been one thing, but a f*cking guy who was completely and utterly useless in every way to begin with? (…) He [Cabana] wasn’t pushed, he wasn’t even prodded and he meant nothing to the show, the revenue, nothing.”

We will have to wait and see whether the backstage environment in the company will get better or not. For the time being, things do not look good for the company.
