Sabu: “WWE guys are actors and stuntmen”

Jun 19, 2024 - by James Walsh

Sabu says Finn Balor is a guy he’s always wanted to face in the ring. The ECW legend recently spoke with Conversations with The Wrestling Classic and named the Judgment Day member as someone he’d love to be able to work a match with. You can see highlights below (per Fightful):

On Balor: “I like Finn Balor. Before he came Finn Balor, I always wanted to wrestle him. Then, he became Finn Balor and I really wanted to wrestle him. I said to him, ‘Hey, man. Some day we gotta get together,’ and he was telling me, ‘Of course.’ But then, it never happened, because I got hurt.”

On Balor being better than WWE is letting him be: “WWE guys are actors and stuntmen. They’re not wrestlers anymore. They’re making him, a wrestler, be an actor, and a stuntman. I don’t blame him. He’s getting paid.”

    He’s wrong and he’s right. On one hand, WWE guys have always been actors and stuntmen. So were ECW guys. That’s the business – they are athletes, but it isn’t an athletic competition. But that being said, if what he’s getting at is that the focus has shifted more and more to the flashier stuff and you don’t see as many pure technical matches anymore, I’m with him. It’s ironic coming from Sabu, but I’m with him.
