Pro wrestling writer Scott Fishman of Channel Guide Magazine recently spoke to Ring of Honor broadcaster and wrestler Colt Cabana ahead of the Ring of Honor shows in Florida and his hurricane relief fundraising efforts with fellow broadcaster Ian Riccaboni.
Cabana talks about transitioning into commentary, if he feels his time in the ring is winding down, new children’s book, Young Bucks, WWE and more.

More about the fundraiser
A few weeks ago, just after much of coastal Texas was affected by Hurricane Harvey, Hurricanes Irma and Maria rocked the United States, ravaging Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Florida, and more. These massive storms left many without basic necessities like power, food, clothing, and even clean drinking water for days, if not weeks.
The stars of Ring of Honor return to Florida for the first time since the hurricanes changed the lives of millions.
While Florida itself continues to rebuild, the Ring of Honor broadcast team of Ian Riccaboni and Colt Cabana were struck by the human spirit seen across the country, particularly Puerto Rico, and are determined to do their part to contribute.
With nearly 70-percent of the American territory remaining without power, the duo aims to raise money to make a meaningful contribution to help, and in a small way, restore a bit of normalcy for those affected.
The duo are offering a special meet-n-greet opportunity at upcoming ROH Live events in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, Nov. 11 and Lakeland on Sunday, Nov. 12.
Cabana and Riccaboni will be stationed outside each arena for 90 minutes, beginning 45 minutes before doors open. For $20, fans will meet the broadcast duo, put on a broadcast headset and take a photo with them, and receive an autographed 8x10 or an autographed personal item.
One-hundred percent of proceeds will be donated directly to Unidos Por Puerto Rico, who uses 100-percent of donations made to support relief efforts.
Unidos Por Puerto Rico is an initiative brought forth by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló, in collaboration with the private sector, with the purpose of providing aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María.
