That’s a classy move. AEW has rapidly become one of the biggest wrestling promotions in the world and it has been quite the success so far. A good deal of that has been due to its roster, but at some point some of them need to change in one way or another. That was nearly the case with one of AEW’s wrestlers, but some more of the roster did not care for the plans.
According to Fightful Select, Colt Cabana’s AEW contract was set to expire earlier this year and the company was not going to offer him a new one. However, other members of the roster stood up for Cabana, who is considered extremely popular backstage. As a result, he was allowed to work the Ring Of Honor Supercard Of Honor event, though he has not wrestled an AEW match since the March 8 Dark. There is no word on when Cabana will wrestle again, though it appears he has been signed to a new deal.
Opinion: That is quite the inspiring story and it is great to see that Cabana has made such an impression on the roster that they are willing to stand up for him. Cabana has been around for a very long time now and is the kind of veteran that you can always use in some way. If that is in Ring Of Honor then so be it, but I would hope that AEW can find some kind of a place for him.
What do you think of Cabana? How could he best be used? Let us know in the comments below.
