Colt Cabana. This was Colt?s second appearance on IYH and he was there to talk about being backstage with Matt Classic at WSX, The infamous Twinkie suit, Samoa Joe leaving ROH, a career outside of pro wrestling, Curryman and Matt Classic?s famous battles with Shooter McPhilips and ?Shooter Foot?

In Your Head can be heard every Wednesday at 6:00 PM EST and be sure to also check out past interviews in the archive section and sign up in the IYH message board were you can post questions to future guests.

Colt starts out the show by plugging his new 2-Disk International DVD ?Colt Cabana: Chicago Globetrotter.? The DVD covers Colt?s career wrestling in Japan, Germany, the UK and Canada. Barbie says that it?s the greatest DVD cover, since the Larry Sweeney DVD cover, it?s a picture of Colt Cabana?s head, photoshopped onto a skinny black guy with an afro. Awesome

A caller Jason, kicks off the interview asking about the Chris Candido tribute match with Larry Sweeney and Delirious? He said he had a good time and the match was fun, they tried not to make too light of the situation but he had a blast working with two just as big goofballs as himself. He says the match is on Larry Sweeney?s DVD.

Jack brings up Wrestling Society X and the debut of Colt?s ?trainer? Matt Classic. Colt wants to set the record straight, he is not signed with WSX and is merely backstage as Matt Classic?s handler of sorts. He compares it to Tim White and how he was always around with Andre the Giant when he went out. Colt says that Matt just stays in his Stu Hart-like Dungeon all day. Colt also said Matt has never trained anybody except Colt Cabana and mainly sits in his dungeon all day doing squat thrusts and leg lifts. Colt said Matt really enjoyed being at WSX, even though he didn?t enjoy any of the untrained, stupid looking, knee pad wearing wrestlers. He hopes to go into WSX and stretch the new kids like he did back in the day.

Barbie asks how hard was it to get Matt to get past the idea that photographs would steal his soul, cause there are a lot of promo pics of him? Colt said that they didn?t tell him they were cameras, but that they were boxes with mirrors. Colt said he grasped the whole ?technology? thing, pretty well.

Jack plugs the WSX website www.wsx.mtv.com . Colt says to check it out and that Matt Classic never losses, he always kicks out before the 3 count and the referees that do count the 3-count, don?t know what they?re doing?they have never been stretched before or have done 1500 squat thrust in 15 minutes like Matt Classic has.

Caller ElTNAfan calls in and asks what he think the biggest difference is wrestling in Japan and wrestling in the United States? Colt says he has a great time in Japan, and that the Japanese under stood and approved of the Colt Cabana character and he was very grateful for that.

The caller also asks if Matt Classic is available to get in the ring with Curryman? Colt says that Matt is available for bookings and if that?s what the fans want and what a promotion wants, they can book Matt Classic to face anybody?Curryman, Colt Cabana?anybody.

Jack asks if a match between Matt Classic and his prot?g? would be against his rules or not? Colt said he has gone in the ring with Matt and he was obliterated, he has fingers like bananas.

Jack asks if there are any legends that Matt has gone ?broadways? with? Colt says of course there?s the great Shooter McPhilips, Stone Fist ?Iron? Johnson, ?Shooter-Foot? Flippy McFarland, Donny ?Two Hands? McFistle and Johnny ?One Hand? Johnson?who contrary to belief, was actually a rare two handed wrestler.

Jack asks if Matt was mad that WSX put him under a mask? Colt said no, because Matt wants to keep his identity a secret so he could go to the grocery store like any normal person. He also doesn?t want people to recognize him and be scared because they would know Matt could kill them with a sneeze. Colt also says Matt is not the best looking guy, he only has half a nose and a third undeveloped eye between his left eye and ear.

Barbie asks if Matt is more a Bacon man or a Sausage man? Colt says he usually blends both them together and then drinks the grease. He said he also enjoys mayonnaise sandwiches and a bakers dozen of cigarettes.

Caller Riren asks if Matt Classic ever challenged Abraham Lincoln for the NWA World Heavyweight Title? Colt said that Matt was way before Abe?s time and that they never were able to duke it out in the old territories cause of the generation gap. Colt then says Matt is still going strong today and then asks what?s Abraham Lincoln been up to these days?

Riren asks where the name of Colts new finishing move came from? Colt says ?The Billy goat?s curse? is reference to the Chicago Cubs curse of 1908, when a fan was refused entrance into Wrigley Field because he brought his goat with him. Colt said he is taking the wrath of Chicago out on all his opponents.

Barbie asks for some dirt on Nigel McGuinness. Colt says that Nigel carries around a chicken breast that he eats for several days.

OIB asks the ?Old School? question from the message board, What?s your favorite move, that you?ve never done? Colt says the 450 Splash, he says he tried it once and never again.

OIB asks a question from Money Duck on the message board, Who scares you the most in wrestling? Colt says every time he meets with Vince McMahon its definitely intimidating

OIB asks a question from Rogue in the message board whether Colt has any plans on expanding outside of professional wrestling? Colt says he has taken acting lessons and he has always been intrigued by comedy, but wrestling will always be his forte and doesn?t plan on leaving it any time soon.

Barbie asks a question from the message board, Where can one acquire a Twinkie costume? Colt says he has no idea and that he found it in upstate New York and has been wearing it to church every Sunday?.even though he is Jewish.

Colt talks about WSX and says that they are just trying to be different and that you?ll see something you?ll never see anywhere else. New episodes of WSX can be seen on Tuesday nights at 10:30 PM on MTV.

Jack asks if Colt follows TNA? Colt says that he tries to DVR anything wrestling related because wrestling is his job and he should know what?s hot and what?s not in the business.

Jack asks if Matt Classic could compete in the UFC back in the day? Colt says Matt could compete in the UFC NOW. A little known fact is that the Classic?s and the Gracie?s have had a long lasting feud through centuries, a lot like the Capulet?s and the Montague?s in Romeo and Juliet.

OIB asked Colt about Samoa Joe?s and other stars exodus from Ring of Honor. Colt responded by saying, that its happened before and it will happen again. Ring of Honor is going strong right now and he says that ROH isn?t going to have a problem making new stars and he wishes Joe best of luck in TNA and whatever else he does in his career.

Jack asks who should WSX bring in for the next season? Colt says there isn?t an excuse as to why Nigel McGuiness hasn?t gotten national exposure yet, Claudio Castignoli, Larry Sweeney, Adam Pierce and Canadian wrestler ?Kingman.?

Barbie asks what its like seeing Ace Steel and CM Punk in WWE? Colt says it great, he was trained everything he ever needed to know by one and the other, he grew up with, traveled up and down the road and shared blood, sweat and tears. Colt says he cant complain, and that all three including himself have grown so much from when they first started out in the business and its truly a blessing.

In Colt?s last moment on the show, he plugs out his online gambling system that he is apart of, www.bestbetonsports.net. He plugs the company that makes his wrestling gear at www.maineventringwear.com and he then plugs www.blackbunnyproductions.com, the company that makes his DVD?s. He also wants people to go check out his myspace at www.myspace.com/coltcabana and to also check out Matt Classic?s myspace, located at www.myspace.com/mattclassic.
