With WrestleMania season going on, every promotion has been paying homage to legends from all around the industry for their incredible contributions to pro wrestling. WWE presented the 2024 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony a couple of days ago, celebrating the careers and lives of some of the biggest names in the history of sports entertainment. 

GCW hosted the 2024 Indie Hall of Fame induction ceremony a few hours ago with numerous names taking their rightful place in the Hall of Fame. Among numerous other names, former ECW star Sabu was also scheduled to be inducted into the Class of 2024 Indie Hall of Fame. 

However, as revealed by GCW promoter Brett Lauderdale, Sabu didn’t want to get into the elevator and come upstairs for his induction. Though he accepted the honor and kept his deposit, he couldn’t get it together to make it in front of fans. 

“In the true spirit of independent wrestling, sabu has decided to keep his deposit and no show the indie hall of fame ceremony today. He accepted the booking and took the money, but doesnt wanna get in the elevator and come upstairs. What a legend.”


Sabu dropping an appearance for his Hall of Fame induction is a clear display of selflessness and humbleness. Fans around the world believe that Sabu has had a massive influence in the entire wrestling industry and his legacy will keep on motivating people around the world. 

How do you feel about Sabu not appearing during his induction into the Indie Hall of Fame? Let us know in the comments section below.
