Sabu has recently found himself embroiled in a series of controversies due to his behavior on social media. The 53-year-old wrestler, known for his time in ECW and various championships, including two reigns with the ECW World Heavyweight Championship, has been under scrutiny for his online remarks.

Sabu has faced several incidents where his comments on social media have drawn significant backlash. The latest controversy involves his response to the promotion of Renee Young as a full-time member of the RAW announce team alongside Corey Graves and Michael Cole.

Sabu took to Twitter to express his views, posting a tweet that contained derogatory and offensive language. The tweet read, “She is the 1st non f*g but she is one of many c*ck s*ckers.” However, Sabu later deleted the tweet.

His comments, which were both sexist and homophobic, drew widespread criticism from wrestling fans and social media users. It became apparent that Sabu had lost favor with the majority of the wrestling fanbase on Twitter, as the backlash against his remarks spread quickly.


The wrestling community, as well as society at large, has made significant strides in promoting inclusivity, respect, and acceptance. Comments that perpetuate sexism and homophobia are met with strong opposition and condemnation. Sabu’s remarks not only violated these principles but also showcased a lack of understanding and sensitivity.

It remains to be seen how Sabu will address the backlash and whether there will be any repercussions within the wrestling industry. As fans continue to hold wrestlers accountable for their actions both in and out of the ring, the incident serves as a reminder of the importance of promoting an inclusive and respectful environment within the wrestling community.
