Ex-WWE Star Thinks They’ll Get Hall Of Fame Nod When They’re Dead

WWE Hall of Fame ring

A former WWE star doesn’t think they’ll get a Hall of Fame induction while they’re alive.

After starting his career back in 1985, Sabu made himself a legend across two spells in ECW, clashing with the likes of Taz, Rob Van Dam, and Terry Funk.

Away from the Paul Heyman-led promotion, the hardcore veteran made stops in the WWF/WWE, WCW, NJPW, and more. However, it was with ECW that he really found a home.

Now that the majority of the ECW roster has hung up their boots, several former extreme stars have found their way into the WWE Hall of Fame — albeit after successful spells with WWE. The likes of the Dudley Boyz, Rob Van Dam, and most recently Paul Heyman himself have all been given the honour.

However, Sabu thinks he’ll have to wait a little while longer to get recognised.

Speaking in a new interview with Steve Fall for WrestlingNews.Co, the veteran compared himself to Rembrandt and said he’ll likely be inducted after he passes away.

“Well, I think eventually, probably. A true artist isn’t recognized until he’s dead, like Rembrandt and those guys. Nobody gave a f**k about them when they were alive. I’ll probably get in there when I’m dead.”

Sabu Blasts Former WWE Bosses

During the same interview, Sabu branded Vince McMahon a “scumbag” before adding that he’d got no love for John Laurinaitis either.

McMahon and Laurinaitis were both named in a lawsuit brought by former WWE employee Janel Grant back in January alleging sexual assault and sex trafficking. Both men deny any wrongdoing.
