• Rhino Reveals Why Sabu Didn’t Publicly Admit That They Were Friends Back In ECW
During a recent appearance on the “Talk ‘N Shop” podcast, former ECW World Heavyweight Champion Rhino revealed that Sabu didn’t publicly admit that they were friends back in Extreme Championship Wrestling because he wanted to ensure Paul Heyman didn’t mess with his career.
Below is what Rhino said:
“[Sabu] told me after 6 months, ‘The reason why I told everybody you’re not my boy and I wouldn’t communicate with you is because we wouldn’t develop that friendship.’
He would bring in guys, friends, that would deserve a spot because they worked hard. Him and Paul Heyman had a love/hate relationship. Paul would hire them, bring them in, use them, f**k with them, and then get rid of them.
He said, ‘With you, I made it a point to make sure nobody thought you were my boy so if you got a job, it was because you were talented. If you didn’t get a job, it’s because you didn’t earn a job and you didn’t deserve it at this moment in time.’
Whether Paul f**ked with the people that were friends (of Sabu), I don’t know, but that’s his side of the story.”
