Colt Cabana recently spoke about his time in WWE, his meeting with Vince McMahon and more during episode 300 of his podcast. According to Cabana, he didn’t expect to go far in WWE. Here is what he had to say:
“I had one meeting with him and the big thing was I said, ‘I’m a comedy wrestler’. I go, ‘I love alternative comedy’ and he goes, ‘like Jackie Gleason?’ And I was like, in my head, I was like, ‘who the f–k is Jackie Gleason? I don’t even know that.
Like, I know the name, but I couldn’t even tell you.’ And it just goes to show you his, not his outdatedness, but just where he is in his head and his references. And when I referenced The State and I referenced Kids In The Hall to him, he had no clue who they were. And that’s kind of the moment I realized, like, I don’t think I’m going to go that very far [in WWE].”
Cabana also took fan questions and talked with Marty DeRosa during this episode, which you can listen to here.
