Find out why Colt Cabana’s most embarrassing moment in wrestling involves The Young Bucks, Cabana’s biggest challenge as a color commentator, the strangest thing to happen to him on foreign soil and more.
1. So, heard any good jokes lately?
Of course. I know you asked this question for me to tell a joke or something, but I hear great jokes all the time. Do yourself a favor and check out great jokes by great stand-ups like Marty DeRosa, Kyle Kinane, Howard Kremer, Brooks Wheelan, Andy Peters and Brendon Burns.
2. Besides yourself, who is the funniest person in the wrestling business?
I’d say either Grado or Kikutaro. You be the judge by buying the indy documentary “Wrestling Road Diaries 3: Funny Equals Money” at ColtMerch.com.
3. What is your most embarrassing moment in wrestling?
Every time at the ROH Meet & Greets when you sit next to the Young Bucks and watch everyone just pass you by to get their picture and autograph.
4. What is a subject you’d like to know more about?
American history. I’d like everything really broken down to me and told to me like I was a 10-year-old. Also, I want the truth. Everything seems to be a revisionist version of history. I want to know what really happened.
5. What is something that’s popular that you just don't get?
Fanny packs, Zubaz, nose piercings, fashion hats.
6. What has been the biggest challenge of being a color commentator in ROH?
If you’ve seen the TV show you know it’d be what to wear. I wish ROH had a fashion department and would just dress me. Why isn't this a thing?
7. What are your broadcast partner Ian Riccaboni’s best and worst qualities?
His best quality is that he’s really nice and kind. I’d say his worst quality is how weirdly nice and kind he is.
8. You’ve wrestled all over the world. What's the funniest or strangest thing that’s ever happened to you on foreign soil?
Definitely wrestling in a dirt patch in India for four straight days in a 25 x 25 ring that was made out of concrete. Tickets were approximately one dollar, and three-thousand people would come each day to watch us perform. The only wrestlers on the show were myself, Trent [Beretta], Kevin Mathews and Sonjay Dutt. The ref was from India and didn’t even know what pro wrestling was.
9. Who is your dream guest for your “Art of Wrestling” podcast?
Since I’ve changed the podcast format, the guest question doesn’t really fit. I do have my wrestling friends on all the time now, though, in a really cool documentary look at independent wrestlers’ lives. There are so many guests now.
10. You’ve had some run-ins with Bully Ray as of late. If he is reading this, what message do you have for him?
Get off the internet.
