Colt Cabana

Colt Cabana reportedly feared for his job at AEW after the company brought in CM Punk back in August 2021. Punk and Cabana had a nasty falling out, and Cabana saw his appearances on TV for AEW dwindle, something that many speculated was Punk’s doing.

During his Keeping it 100 podcast, Konnan recalled a meeting with Cabana during an AEW event where they discussed Punk.

“When I saw Colt Cabana backstage, I remember asking him, ‘So what’s up with you now that Punk is back?’ He was like, ‘Yeah, man” Konnan said (h/t WrestlingNews). “We’re not really talking.’ I go, ‘Come on, dude. After all these years, you guys were boys’ He said, ‘Yeah, man. He just won’t talk to me.’ He would kind of look around, like, he knew [he was going to be fired.]”

Since then, Punk has been suspended by AEW with his firing (or contract buyout) expected in the future, while Cabana has recently returned to AEW television.

Lio Rush

Lio Rush was one of the many former WWE superstars who appeared and competed for AEW, but his may be among the most confusing as Rush made his debut at the Double Or Nothing pay-per-view in 2021.

That was the first AEW show in front of a live crowd since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and while Rush’s debut popped the crowd, he didn’t last long with the company has Rush’s contract would expire in February 2022.

Following his departure, Rush spoke out on Twitter regarding a controversial tweet from AEW President Tony Khan on New Year’s Eve in 2021, and now claims that the company did not know what to do with him.

“Of course not” he said during an interview on the Say Less Podcast (h/t Fightful Select). “When I say things, I don’t wanna sound like it was breaking news because I feel like these things are so blatantly obvious. It’s like, yanno, he made it pretty clear to me, verbally, that when he was a fan of me, it was when I was in WWE and I was doing the manager stuff with Bobby [Lashley]. If that’s how he saw me, that’s the only light he sees me in… [then] that’s [probably what] he’s gonna shift me to be in that kind of role. Which I’m not, yanno… I’m so grateful for that time period [in WWE] because it taught me how to talk, it taught me how to present myself and build others up. No, I don’t think that [they] exactly knew what to do with me. That’s always a frustrating thing, but like you said when [I] say stuff it just gets f*cking blown up.”
