- Colt Cabana spoke with Mike Mooneyham of The Post & Courier this weekend about CM Punk’s promo on last Monday’s RAW. Here are some quotes from the article:
“He’s worn my shirt before doing commentary. He doesn’t care anymore, and he’s looking out for his buddies.”
“He mentioned Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar — two guys Vince knows very well. He also mentioned a little-known wrestler from Chicago named Colt Cabana. Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar weren’t trending on Twitter worldwide, but Colt Cabana was. Hopefully this promo was revolutionary in terms of maybe making them recognize that his real feelings will bring them so much attention. Hopefully that will open some eyes and open some doors for wrestlers like myself and Zack Ryder to get a better opportunity using real-life situations.”
“There were a lot of ‘thank you’s’ from those guys in the back. Everyone wants to say it, but no one has the gall to. But Punk is Punk, and that’s what has made him so amazing over the years. He had a live mic, and he was able to do it.”
“We said that wrestling needs some kind of spark. And you never know where it’s going to come from. Thank God it was from an unscripted promo. It wasn’t from some writer telling Punk what to do. It was unscripted, live television, and I hope this has the ability to turn wrestling around if done right. I hope they go the right way with it.”
