Sabu Reveals How His AEW Debut Came Together
Sabu made his surprising AEW debut in May
In the run-up to Adam Cole vs. Chris Jericho at AEW Double or Nothing in May 2023, Cole introduced an equaliser to help nullify the threat of the Jericho Appreciation Society, with ECW icon Sabu arriving in the company to corner Cole at the PPV event.
Sabu would go on to briefly rumble with the JAS at Double or Nothing, and during a signing session with Golden Ring Collectables, Sabu revealed how his AEW debut came about:
"About a week before I did the first appearance - the Wednesday before the Wednesday I did the Dynamite appearance - Chris Jericho called me. We chatted a little bit and then he called me back and said, 'Hey, I got an idea.' I said, 'Okay.' The he called me on the phone and said, 'I got an idea. Adam Cole, me, you know, boom, boom, boom.' He goes, 'We'll bring you out as a surprise. Would you want to do it?' I go, 'Yeah,'" said Sabu.
A former ECW World Champion and hardcore wrestling pioneer in the 90s, Sabu last wrestled in July 2021.
