Colt Cabana spoke with A Music Blog, Yea? (AMBY) on a number of wrestling topics. You can see the full interview in the video above. Here are some of the highlights:
"There [are] not a lot of comedian wrestlers out there and that's one of the reasons why I realized it would be so fun to tackle. ...If you look at American, at what people look at 'Comedic wrestlers' like Junkyard Dog, or Jimmy Valiant, or maybe even Dusty Rhodes, to a little bit of an extent. They weren't known as comedic wrestlers, they were just kind of wrestlers with a lot of character and pizzazz. So, I kind of wanted to be somewhere in the middle of that, be a wrestler with character and pizzazz, but then also really, really dive into the humor of it. I was wrestling probably for five or six years as a regular wrestler and then I did a thing with AJ Styles where he hit the ropes and I just stuck my foot out and tripped him and I just got this crazy laugh. I was like 'That's the loudest reaction I've got in my whole career' and it wasn't from a crazy move, it was from tripping a dude and getting a laugh."
His podcast and how he picks guests:
"I really was the first wrestle-to-wrestler podcast and I started in 2010 and now it's kind of exploded, it's become a real big thing. But for me, it was always about having my friends on. It was just I knew that these dudes were so fun, and funny backstage, and in the locker rooms we would have these chats, and I wanted to be able to give everyone that insight."
Who he would like to have on the podcast and not asking on WWE employees:
"[NXT Trainer] Robbie Brookside was a guy I wanted to have on and it really didn't work out. Now that WWE won't let [anyone on] - I don't think - and I won't ask anyone from WWE, so it's kind of one of those weird things."
Colt Cabana also discussed the weirdest place he toured. Again, you can see the full interview in the video above.
