Colt Cabana recently spoke with CraveOnline.com about various topics. Here are the highlights.
On the popularity of NXT and indie wrestling in WWE:
“It’s funny how late WWE is to the party where they just realized how awesome it is and now they have basically started their own independent promotion with NXT, which is kind of weird but totally expected. It’s the Hot Topic of Punk Rock, if you will [laughs]. But I think anything underground that you discover will always be cool in any culture so independent wrestling is something you can discover that’s very niche and very quiet.”
On finding freedom on the indie scene post-WWE:
“When I was in the developmental system in the WWE, there were a lot of people saying ‘You can’t do that’ and a lot of it was they would stop me from doing a higher level. That’s the thing about the WWE or a bigger place. Everyone is afraid for their jobs and they don’t want a bad stamp on their own resume. That’s why the independents are great. There is a freedom for everything. The idea of being restricted is because everyone is afraid for their jobs and they’re nice high-paying corporate jobs and there’s not a lot in the world of wrestling so of course, they want to hold on to it.”
