AEW has a lot of people on their payroll, but not all of them show up every week. Although Colt Cabana hasn’t been around for a while, he was back this week.

Colt Cabana and CM Punk have a rich history with each other. They were once friends, when they took advantage of Bikini Girl, but years later the two split apart. Punk then dragged Cabana during that infamous rant that caused Brawl Out.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that Colt Cabana is back in AEW, and he’s working once again. This went down during this week’s Dynamite tapings.

Fightful Select learned that Colt Cabana was back at work for All Elite Wrestling during the July 5 episode of AEW Dynamite in Edmonton. Cabana was last seen on screen for AEW back in November when he was a surprise ROH World Title Challenger to Chris Jericho on AEW Dynamite. Since then, he’s also appeared on ROH programming, unsuccessfully challenging Samoa Joe to an ROH World TV Title shot in April.


It was also noted that Colt Cabana returned as a “producer/coach, though we don’t know what match it was that he was helping out with.” Cabana has also been “largely absent since AEW All Out, when he was mentioned by CM Punk at the post-show press conference, with comments stemming from their long-time friendship and subsequent falling out. Punk is working on the Collision brand.”

It’s not clear at this time whether Colt Cabana is back on a full-time basis, “but by the sounds of it, he’ll be around more often.” We will keep a close eye on this ongoing story.

Does AEW need to give Colt Cabana more attention? Sound off in the comments!
