Colt Cabana recently spoke with CraveOnline.com about various topics. During the interview, Cabana was asked about the popularity of NXT. ““It’s funny how late WWE is to the party where they just realized how awesome it is and now they have basically started their own independent promotion with NXT.” Cabana added that it’s kind of weird yet totally expected. Cabana thinks that anything underground that you discover will always be cool in any culture, so independent wrestling is something that is very niche and very quiet.
When asked about finding freedom on the indie scene following his stint in WWE. Cabana explained when he was in WWE, there would be officials telling him that he can and can’t do something in a match and that they would stop him doing something at a higher level. Cabana said that everyone is afraid for their jobs and they don’t want a bad stamp on their own resume while in WWE, so that is the reason that the indy scene is so great because there is freedom. “The idea of being restricted is because everyone is afraid for their jobs and they’re nice high-paying corporate jobs and there’s not a lot in the world of wrestling so of course, they want to hold on to it.”
