Hardcore legend and former ECW Tag Team champion Sabu has talked about how he once annoyed Vince McMahon by taking a dig at the WWE chairman’s ability to take bumps. Sabu isn’t one to keep his opinion to himself and that is exactly what happened in this story.
During an interview with Title Match Wrestling, the 56-year-old Sabu said Vince approached him to discuss a table spot between Sabu and the then WWE Champion John Cena in 2006. According to the ECW original, Vince wanted the high-risk bump rehearsed before the actual show. The plan was for Sabu to put Cena through the announcer’s table with a top-rope leg drop,
“We walk out to the ring and he goes, ‘I did a bump on this table and I busted my ass.’ I went, ‘Well, that’s you.’ But I shouldn’t have said that. I go, ‘That’s you, of course you busted your ass.'”
“You’re the sh*ts.’ But I shouldn’t have said that. ‘Yeah, that’s you but I’m not gonna do that.’ Even if it’s possible, I’m not gonna listen to him. Yes, he did [take offense to the comment], yes, he did.”
Sabu had a mini feud with John Cena that included the said table spot on the June 19th episode of RAW and an Extreme Rules Lumberjack match at the Vengeance PPV in 2006.
