Colt Cabana has had an up-and-down relationship with WWE, going from wrestling for them to being sued by their doctor for hosting CM Punk on a controversial podcast.
Recently, WWE sent Bullet Club members Young Bucks a cease and desist letter for use of the "too sweet" hand gesture. According to Cabana in a recent interview with Channel Guide Magazine, he isn't the least bit surprised. Also, he's all too familiar with the company's power as it pertains to attorneys.
"They've always done stuff like this. From the days of Howard Finkel, his alleged job was to read the dirt sheets to see what was happening. They always had their ear to the ground on who is infringing on their stuff. I get it. They went to their own place. The Young Bucks and Bullet Club went to their show and tried to make a little raucous the same way WWE did years ago. They have the right to use their money and lawyers the way they want to. They have a lot of money and have a lot of lawyers. So that's what they do."
With Cabana being sued by WWE doctor Chris Amann, his relationship with long-connected CM Punk is rumored to be strained. Colt is currently working with Ring of Honor as an announcer, and has goals in mind while plying his trade there.
"I don't want to take from anyone in wrestling. That is important to me because I don't want to be a second rate anybody. Just like in my wrestling style, I get a lot of inspiration from pop culture and comedy. I want to be as conversational as I can. I've been doing podcasting now for seven-and-a-half years, it's kind of moved into broadcasting a little bit. When I'm talking about wrestling, I don't want it to sound corny or sound like a 1970s broadcaster. I just want to sound like me. Hopefully, that's the voice of the wrestling fan or a familiar voice of the wrestling fan. I think that's important to be a voice that sounds familiar and not some over-the-top critical analysis."
