He is best known for his time in Ring of Honor (ROH). Colton also wrestled as Scotty Goldman in World Wrestling Entertainment and as old school masked wrestler Matt Classic in Wrestling Society X and Chikara. Cabana began his professional wrestling career in the Midwest.

He competed routinely in St. Paul, Minn., for Steel Domain Wrestling in 2000 and 2001, often teaming or facing rival and friend CM Punk. Cabana and Punk competed extensively from Michigan to Pennsylvania, and notably for IWA-Midsouth across Indiana and Illinois.

Cabana made a name for himself when he joined ROH, where he was placed in a rivalry with Punk before uniting with Punk and Ace Steel to form the Second City Saints alliance. He later formed a tag team with Punk to win the World Tag Team Championship twice. He also had rivalries with Homicide and then-World Champion Bryan Danielson.

Cabana has also toured in countries outside of the United States, and he was a part of the short lived Wrestling Society X on MTV in late 2006, where he portrayed his “old school” wrestling persona, the masked
“Matt Classic”.

In 2007, he left ROH to wrestle in Ohio Valley Wrestling, a developmental territory of World Wrestling Entertainment, where he won the Television Championship once and the Southern Tag Team Championship once with Charles Evans and once with Shawn Spears.

He made several appearances, as Scotty Goldman, with WWE on its SmackDown brand before being released from his contract in February 2009. Cabana is a former one-time JCW World Heavyweight Champion, and two-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion.
