Former ECW/WCW/WWE star Sabu underwent hip replacement surgery this past week. The surgery was a success.
Sabu is still dealing with back and shoulder issues because from his brutal, fast-paced style. As we first noted in August, fans that would like to donate to help him out with his medical bills can do so by clicking here. The money raised will go towards surgeries and other post-surgery procedures including physical therapy. As of this writing, over $20,000 has been donated but the goal is to reach $50,000.
Sabu is one of the most underrated and, perhaps, underappreciated guys in the business. He was an innovator and one of the main reasons why ECW became so popular in the mid 90’s. Many wrestlers were influenced by his style but unfortunately for Sabu, he was never part of one major organization for an extended period of time so he was not able to benefit financially like others did.
