Colt Cabana has shed light on his role within All Elite Wrestling (AEW) during a recent discussion.

Having made several appearances for AEW in 2019, Colt Cabana officially joined the promotion in 2020. He initially engaged in a feud with the Dark Order but ultimately became a member of the faction, participating in the Brodie Lee Celebration of Life tribute event in December.

Colt Cabana’s connection with CM Punk has been a notable aspect of his journey. Last year, their personal dispute came into the spotlight following Punk’s contentious comments during the post-show media scrum at AEW All Out 2022. Punk humorously mentioned Cabana’s shared bank account with his mother.

Although Colt Cabana hasn’t been featured on AEW television since November of the previous year, when he challenged Chris Jericho for the ROH World Title, he has remained active on the independent wrestling scene. He recently took part in a match on the April 20 episode of ROH TV.


In a conversation with MuscleManMalcolm, Cabana delved into his role in AEW. While Cabana humbly downplayed being labeled a “big AEW superstar,” he revealed his contributions behind the scenes. He clarified that he assists with backstage operations and engages in producing segments. He shared:

“I don’t know about big AEW superstar. I’m there, I get a check. Sometimes I get on the shows. I do help backstage, I do a lot of producing.”

Cabana was further questioned about his specific contributions, and he pointed out his involvement in producing the match between Orange Cassidy and Wheeler Yuta, which took place on the August 16 episode of AEW Dynamite. Cabana explained his role in guiding camera angles and predictions due to his extensive wrestling experience:

“I was producer for Orange Cassidy and Wheeler Yuta. I was on the headsets and helping the director. As a producer, because I know wrestling, the director might not know wrestling, so I’ll be on the headset and I can kind of see, ‘You might want to get this angle because this might happen.’ It usually does because I’ve been wrestling for so long, I can foresee it.”

Cabana’s upcoming match against Matt Cardona to crown the inaugural Premier World Champion at the Wrestling Showcase event on September 9 in Metuchen, New Jersey, underscores his continued involvement and influence in the wrestling industry.
