On the latest "Keepin' It 100" podcast, Konnan talked about a conversation he had with Colt Cabana when he was backstage at AEW several months ago. Konnan said he asked Cabana what he thought when CM Punk came to AEW:

Konnan said, "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. 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."

Konnan said that in hindsight, Cabana had to know that he was likely on his way out because of Punk. 

Konnan said, "Now when I look back, he knew that he was probably going to get the ax from Punk somehow, or Tony did it to make Punk happy, or Punk asked him, because now when I think back to that day, I remember telling him 'Bro, you can't even sit down and just say, Hey, let's reset our relationship.' He said, 'Nah, man. He won't even talk to me.' But anyway, I was happy to see him back because obviously, he was the victim of some sort of chicanery there, politics. He looked good. Jericho did a great job and made him look good. Jericho does a good job making people look good."
