• ECW Legend Reveals Why He Was Removed From An Elimination Chamber Match In 2006
Old School ECW Legend Sabu was supposed to be a participant in the 6-man Extreme Elimination Chamber match for the ECW World Championship at the December to Dismember 2006 pay-per-view, but ended up being replaced by Hardcore Holly.
During a recent interview with ‘Title Match Wrestling’, Sabu explained what led to WWE’s decision to take him out of the match.
Here’s what the Hardcore Wrestling Legend said:
“They didn’t try to cater to me at all. They just treated me like I was another guy. Stephanie McMahon, she wasn’t taking no for an answer. She either took no for an answer or she got rid of [the problem]. I was supposed to be in an Elimination Chamber match that Sunday. They had me do an angle where I hurt my arm, and they took me out of it.
I had a guy the other day say, ‘Hey, remember that time in WWE when you no-showed? What happened? He goes, ‘Yeah, I bought the DVD and you’re on the cover, but you’re nowhere in it.’ Because I wouldn’t cut that promo, Stephanie McMahon took me out of it.”
