In a move virtually nobody saw coming, Sabu made his AEW debut on Wednesday night’s episode of Dynamite, being named special enforcer for Chris Jericho vs. Adam Cole at Double or Nothing. This, therefore, led some to speculate on what Sabu’s long-term future with the promotion would be, and now that has been officially answered. This would come during Tony Khan’s conference call to promote the pay-per-view, and he would confirm Sabu was simply making guest appearances. Yet, it was noted the door does remain open for him to make further guest appearances again in the future.
For those unaware, Sabu was one of the most innovative wrestlers of the 90s, and for a few years, people would debate whether he was the best performer in the world. However, the fact he didn’t have long runs in major promotions and developed a reputation as not being the smoothest performer compared to the likes of Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart would prevent him from attaining this status with the masses. He would, though, become a cult icon in ECW and was influential in putting the promotion on the map. Sadly, this destroyed his body, and he is now in semi-retirement, having not wrestled for almost two years.
