Video: Rob Van Dam Asks Wrestling Fans to Help with Surgery for Sabu
Rob Van Dam is currently asking fans to help contribute to help pay for surgery for his former tag team partner and life-long best friend, Sabu.
Rob says that Sabu is in dire need of a hip replacement as soon as possible. Sabu was against any kind of crowd-sourcing, but Van Dam – and some other close friends – created one anyway, at this link. As of this writing, 53 people have raised $1,498 of a $50,000 goal in just 1 day.
RVD says that surgery is a last resort for the ECW Original but he really needs it. Besides his hip, Sabu has been dealing with shoulder and back issues, and is said to be walking with a visible limp. Sabu has continued to work indie events and is hoping to return to the ring once he recovers from hip surgery.
The GoFundMe page says that donations will be used for pre-op procedures, the surgery itself and post-op requirements, including physical therapy. It was also noted that thousands of dollars have already been spent on getting consultations, x-rays, injections and other medical attention to help his hip without surgery. Sabu has been dealing with the hip problems for several years now.
