Colt Cabana Says He Was Told Chris Jericho Requested Him For 11/2 AEW Dynamite Match

On the November 2 episode of AEW Dynamite, Colt Cabana made his return to AEW when he challenged Chris Jericho for the ROH World Championship.

It marked Cabana's first AEW TV appearance since the March 8 episode of AEW Dark. He was moved to the ROH roster during that time and there were reports CM Punk asked him to be moved from the AEW roster, which Tony Khan denied.

Appearing on The Work of Wrestling podcast, Cabana was asked about his current status in AEW.

"I have a contract with AEW, I get paid regardless, my contract is with AEW. I've been told that I'm going to be used for Ring of Honor. That's kind of it. There hasn't been a lot of contact, but I do know that I collect a check and it comes from All Elite Wrestling," he said.

Asked how his AEW return came together and if he heard from Tony Khan, Colt said, "I never talked to Tony until I was in Gorilla (position), so it wasn't a call from Tony Khan. The travel called me up and said, 'You're needed for Baltimore, Maryland.' I assumed it was to wrestle Chris Jericho. I think the travel told me, 'Chris Jericho is requesting your presence in Baltimore.' So, I wrestled Chris. I'm under contract, they tell me to show up, I showed up. They tell me who I'm wrestling, I wrestle. If they want me to wrestle again, I'll wrestle again. if they want me to agent again, I'll agent again, whatever."

Cabana has not been on AEW TV since his November 2 bout.

He offered more detail on the Jericho match and how he nearly died due to compression socks on his Art of Wrestling podcast. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
