Colt Cabana’s return to AEW programming earlier this month may have been a boost in locker-room morale, but has only made things worse with CM Punk.
Cabana challenged Ring of Honor World Champion Chris Jericho in a losing effort earlier this month, in Colt’s first AEW TV match in close to a year.
Given that Cabana’s hiatus from AEW TV began not long after CM Punk’s arrival, many have accused the latter of having Cabana pulled from TV.
In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reports that Cabana’s match “only made things worse” between AEW and Punk.
Punk has been adamant that he had nothing to do with Cabana’s absence, though “a lot of talent” do not believe his denial.
