Sabu announces retirement from in-ring competition due to issues with his back

On this week’s edition of WSI | Wrestling Shoot Interviews, Sabu announced that he has probably wrestled his final match after his body didn’t hold up during a bout a couple of weeks earlier.

Here’s the clip of Sabu saying he’s done with wrestling:

The following is a couple of quotes from the above clip:

“I’m not doing real good. I hurt my back about a year ago and it’s still been hurting. I wrestled a couple of weeks ago but I shouldn’t have. I’ve only wrestled like twice in the last year [and] I only went to the gym a couple of times the last year ’cause I hurt my back. I’m probably not gonna wrestle no more… I’m probably just gonna do autograph signings and personal appearance-type stuff .”

When asked if there was anybody who would inspire him to get back in the ring for one more match, Sabu said the following:

“I’d definitely get back in the ring for Brock Lesnar, I’d love to wrestle him. Especially if it was my final match, I’d love to wrestle him… He’s the best, he’s a shooter, he;s a good worker, he’s my kind of opponent. I like big guys, I like wrestling big guys. I don’t like wrestling guys like me because it’s not that interesting. It’s more interesting wrestling a guy like me against a guy like Brock Lesnar.”

Sabu also says that Big Show and Mike Awesome were the two best big men he ever wrestled.
