Chicago Fire
By PAULI POISUO
Over the years, "One Chicago" characters have been known to turn up in shows ranging from "F.B.I." to "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." Nevertheless, there are still some areas of entertainment that you wouldn't necessarily associate these shows with, and one such area is professional wrestling.
However, as it turns out, Chicago-based AEW wrestler Colt Cabana appeared on "Chicago Fire" as a Hazmat team leader in the Season 8 episode "Infection: Part I." The pro wrestler recently shared the secrets of his "Chicago Fire" stint in a TikTok video, where he said he got the audition at 5 a.m. while on tour in Edinburgh, Scotland.
He added, " I had one hour to learn the lines and film it before I had to get on an international flight, so I figured ... I just kind of did it. I can't believe I booked it." The filming experience turned out to have more moving pieces than Cabana expected, and while he didn’t end up getting a regular role on "Chicago Fire," he certainly seems happy with the experience.
