Colt Cabana is a veteran of the wrestling industry, and he recently talked about how problem people in the locker room are handled. Cabana was a guest on the Work of Wrestling Podcast and was asked about how “bad apples” are handled. You can check out some highlights below, per Fightful:

On how problem people are dealt with in the locker room: “As you say that, I’m not even thinking about present day, I’m thinking about when the Ring of Honor locker room was so tight or even my developmental days when they were tight. It’s almost like, the group of people who form this unit, will kind of band together and almost get stronger when they are against one specific thing. It almost makes the locker room even stronger to then,’ship up or shape out,’ whatever the term is. Shape up or ship out.

“When a bad apple or someone rotten comes into your locker room, the locker room gets together, gets strong, and they kind of give ultimatums almost. Maybe not actual ultimatums, but that person, or those people will kind of be alienated and, eventually, information of why that alienation is there will come, and then they have a choice to do nothing about it, do something about it or anything in-between. It’s up to them. Usually, it tends to work itself out.”

On people changing to become more positive forces backstage: “Yeah, I can’t think of an example specifically, but 100% over the years. Then, these people become friends and years later you joke about what idiots they were and you tell them, they admit it, and that’s the long term relationship of a wrestling locker room.”
