Colt Cabana returns to AEW on Dynamite

Cabana wrestled Chris Jericho in his first Dynamite match in nearly one year on Wednesday's episode.

Colt Cabana returned to AEW on Wednesday's Dynamite, facing Chris Jericho in his first match on the program in nearly a year. 

Jericho vs. "a former ROH Champion" was advertised for Wednesday's episode. Cabana, a two-time Ring of Honor Tag Team Champion, was revealed as the opponent when his entrance music hit. 

Jericho went on to defeat Cabana in the match, Cabana's first televised match on Dynamite since the November 24, 2021 Dynamite Thanksgiving show, where he faced Bryan Danielson. 

Cabana has sporadically appeared on AEW Dark since last November, and also wrestled in three matches for the company at the Gamescom convention in Germany this past August. 

Cabana has wrestled twice for ROH this year after AEW's Tony Khan purchased the company. It was reported in May that Cabana had signed a new contract with Khan, and was earmarked for the ROH brand. 

Despite personal animosity between Cabana and former AEW World Champion CM Punk, Khan stated in September that Cabana being moved away from AEW to the ROH brand had nothing to do with Punk. 

In the infamous post-All Out media scrum in September, Punk went off on Cabana and detailed the interpersonal dynamics that he said led to the dissolution of their friendship. 

Cabana's two reigns with the ROH Tag titles were both as part of the Second City Saints team with Punk.
