What you loved:

  1. Sacrifice - For almost 30 years, he put his body on the line every single time he wrestled for our entertainment.
  2. Chair - Best use of the chair since Flashdance.
  3. Feuds - Funk, Foley, and Taz, look them up!
  4. RVD - This was a tag team that probably shouldn't have worked, but instead worked to perfection.
  5. Arabian Face Buster - A classic move by Sabu, chair to the face.

Best comment comes via lodi85:

"He gets a five, because Sabu is crazy, his matches are like watching a cross between a car crash and ballet."


What you loathed:

  1. Past Prime - Sabu is now 49 and still fighting like he was back in ECW.
  2. One Dimensional - Not exactly known to switch up his style in any match, ever.
  3. Substance Issues - An unfortunate side-effect to his hardcore style.
  4. Botches - You could spend a whole night looking at Sabu mistakes, it's ridiculous how much he messed up.
  5. Skips Matches - He's been known to miss an event or two.

Best comment comes via DruidicNight:

"Out-of-the-ring, he lived his gimmick — demons and injuries galore. When you saw him in-ring, it was more like morbidly watching a train-wreck than a wrestling match."

On to the poll! With 169 votes, Sabu's average score is 3.8

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow is recap day with updated poll scores and best comments of the week.

Until then!
