Suicidal. Genocidal. Homicidal. Never before had adjectives seem appropriate for a wrestler as the wrestling style of Sabu fit those words perfectly. There was no move he wouldn’t try, no risk he wouldn’t take, or no injury he wouldn’t work through. Sabu was an independent superstar who found a home in ECW went through miles of barbed wire, rings on fire and suffered countless broken bones (including his neck) and has a road map of scars across his body. He was agile, fast and was considered the top draw on the indy circuit.
Perhaps that was the problem. Sabu’s style was difficult to mesh in the two National promotions and by the time he got to the WWE, it was the watered down version of ECW, and Sabu himself was not the wrestler he used to be. In many ways, Sabu is in the mold of the Dynamite Kid; a wrestler who put his body on the line countless times and seemed to receive little in return. An induction to the WWE Hall of Fame may be a way to say thank you, but we have a feeling that is unlikely to happen. At this point we are just hoping that when his wrestling career is over he is able to live to tell about it.
