Colt Cabana told Alex Marvez of Scripps Howard News Service that he will be attending this Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view event, which emanates from Rosemont, Illinois.
“I am more interested as a fan to see what happens,” Cabana said. “There is so much buzz around this. Punk has caused a stir that hasn’t happened in wrestling in a long time. I’m excited to see what goes down and, most importantly, watching my best friend in his last WWE match.”
Cabana, who performed for WWE in 2008 and 2009, also spoke about his interest level in returning to the organization.
“I love where my career and life is at,” said Cabana. “Don’t get me wrong: I’d love to be with WWE and working again with CM Punk. That would be amazing.
“But I’ve also seen so many guys get fired from WWE and then sit around waiting to get a call to come back that usually doesn’t come. Their value drops until they have no following. I can’t sit and wait. All the different projects I have make me creatively and monetarily happy.”
Cabana remains hopeful that Punk’s tirades could benefit both his friend and spark WWE to reassess its method of operation.
“If the buy rate for this show is high, it basically says CM Punk was responsible singlehandedly for making this kind of money,” Cabana said. “And it will be because of the stuff he said, that people want to see something different and have gotten on the bandwagon. If WWE realizes that maybe it is time for a change, the potential for that is there.
“Yes, inevitably this will all put a lot of money in McMahon’s pocket. But it also puts a lot of power into the hands of CM Punk.”
