How wrestling with compression socks was almost fatal for Colt Cabana

Colt Cabana discussed how using compression socks for his match against Chris Jericho a few weeks ago nearly had a fatal outcome for him.

Discussing the scenario on his Art of Wrestling podcast, Cabana said that he loves to wear soccer socks that go all the way up to his knee and he lost them leading up to the show.

He said he left it up until the last day to go buy a new pair and Target didn’t have any except for compression socks, which he bought without knowing the consequences.

Cabana noted how during the match he wasn’t feeling his legs and was having other complications that he first attributed to anxiety.

After the match was over, he was getting checked by the doctor backstage as he was feeling lightheaded and couldn’t breathe.

“He rips my boots off. Then I’m like, ‘Can you take my knee pads? I just feel so constricted.’ He takes my knee pads off. And then I’m like, ‘Can we get my socks off?’ And I say, ‘You know, I bought these compressions socks last night,'” Cabana recounted.

The doctor then schooled Cabana on why he should not wear compression socks for a wrestling match as they were cutting off the supply of blood to his legs, causing high blood pressure and low oxygen.

“Hopefully my wrong can help somebody in the future and you are either a current or a future pro wrestler. And you, needing socks, know just grab the regular ones,” Cabana concluded.
