Colt Cabana Recalls Speaking With Sting For Two Hours And Sting Not Remembering

Sometimes you just don't remember.

We meet a lot in life. If you're a wrestler or any famous person, you likely meet more people than the average person. You can meet fans outside the arena, fans in the arena, fans at a convention, or random people stopping you at breakfast.

If you meet Brian Myers, he's not going to pretend to remember you if you met him years ago.

"I did The Big Event with Brian Myers. A guy came up to him and goes, 'Do you know who I am?' Brian just goes, 'Nope.' I looked at him and laughed so hard. 'Oh my God, did you just say nope?' 'Yup. I'm over it. I can't play these games with people.' I would have been like, 'Oh yeah.' 'Nope, I don't do it. I don't remember you, I don't remember you,'" recalled Colt Cabana on the PWTCast.

Cabana continued, telling his own story not being remembered.

"Usually I'm like, 'Ah...' and the worst is like, 'Where do you know me from?' 'Ah fuck, man, stop being an asshole. What do you want from me?' It makes sense because you probably think the same thing of, those moments are so special, I remember people that I've met and I've probably done that too. Fuck, I did it to Sting. Me and Sting had an hour and a half conversation at an airport on a layover together, I thought we became best friends. Then he signed with AEW, I was like, 'Hey, remember me?' 'Uhh.' 'I was in the airport, we talked for like two hours.' 'Was it about God?' I was like, 'Oh my God, I'm sorry,' then I just walked away. 'No, hi, I'm Colt.' To me, it's like, 'how could you not remember that?' Then, of course, I put myself in his shoes and I get it. It was only a couple of months," he said.

Sting signed with AEW in December 2020, making his first appearance at AEW Dynamite Winter is Coming.
