Sabu No-Showed Indie Wrestling Hall Of Fame Ceremony

ECW icon Sabu didn't show up to receive his Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame honour

Former ECW star Sabu did not show up to his Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame induction as scheduled, according to GCW promoter Brett Lauderdale. 

Sabu was due to be inducted into the 2024 class, but did not show up to receive the honour, despite being downstairs in the building at the time. Commenting on the situation via X, Lauderdale tweeted

"In the true spirit of independent wrestling, sabu has decided to keep his deposit and no show the indie hall of fame ceremony today. He accepted the booking and took the money, but doesnt wanna get in the elevator and come upstairs

"What a legend"

The 59-year-old was present at WrestleCon while the induction ceremony was taking place. Both events were held at the Sheraton hotel in downtown Philadelphia. 

The Briscoes (Mark and Jay), Steve Corino, Trent Acid, Mercedes Martinez, Eddie Gilbert and indie wrestling superfan Kevin 'Whack Packer' Hogan were inducted into the 2024 Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame class. 

Sabu last wrestled in July 2021. Earlier this year, he noted that he needs to have knee and shoulder replacements and still wishes to have a final match.
