An AEW star was expected not to be re-signed until talent within the company spoke up against that.
Last month, it was speculated that Colt Cabana had missed recent AEW TV shows due to his fractured friendship with CM Punk.
However, Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Cabana was signed to a new contract to be part of the ROH brand, which was pushed for by Matt and Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks.
Per Fightful Select (subscription required), there was word several months back that Colt Cabana’s deal with the company was not being renewed.
With Cabana being an extremely popular person backstage, numerous talent voiced their displeasure and went to bat for the AEW star.
This led to Colt appearing on the April 1 ROH Supercard of Honor event.
Sources indicated that Colt Cabana is almost never at AEW television tapings and hasn’t been booked to compete in a while.
Many of the roster believed this was the case thanks to his contentious relationship (or lack thereof) with CM Punk, but the lessened focus on the Dark Order as well as AEW not coming to terms with Alan Angels and Stu Grayson changed some of those assumptions.
As of now, Cabana remains on the AEW roster page.
We will have further updates on Colt Cabana and his status with All Elite Wrestling when they become available.
