He's suicidal. Homicidal. GENOCIDAL!
On this episode of The 69 Minute Eargasm with Joel Gertner, the Quintessential Studmuffin welcomes Sabu and Super Genie to the show. Listen in as Sabu recounts the tail of training to become a professional wrestler under his uncle, The Original Sheik.
Breaking into the pro wrestling business alongside Rob Van Dam (RVD) through the Memphis territory (under Jerry Jarrett and Jerry 'The King' Lawler), finding his way to Japan to wrestle for FMW and ultimately making his mark in the United States with Paul Heyman in ECW.
Sabu then tells us of his journey through ECW where he would find himself in a tough bargaining position with Eric Bischoff, then through WWE where Sabu was at odds with his producer, Dean Malenko.
Now Sabu works the indies where possible and enjoys the occasional stop in Impact Wrestling (formerly TNA).
