Sabu – “The WWE Hall Of Fame Is The Fakest Hall Of Fame”

Sabu Rob Van Dam

Former ECW Champion Sabu has taken a swipe at the WWE Hall Of Fame, saying that it only exists as a way to sell tickets rather than honour wrestlers.

‘The Homicidal, Suicidal, Genocidal, Death–Defying Maniac’ Sabu was speaking to The NWC Show where he also confirmed recent reports that a fellow ECW legend is poised to enter the WWE Hall Of Fame.

Sabu commented:

“Hey, Rob Van Dam is getting into the Hall of Fame this year, I think. I wasn’t supposed to say nothing but you can tell people that. Exclusive, right.”

Sabu then went on to discuss his views on the WWE Hall Of Fame. The former ECW triple crown champion did not have many positive things to say. However, Sabu did note that he would not refuse an induction himself.

Sabu explained:

“You know, I talk bad about the Hall of Fame because I think it’s a fake Hall of Fame, but I would do it because it’d be a good payoff, you know? So, I’d do it for the payoff, but I might ‘motherf**ker!’ when I do the speech, if I did a speech, I might ‘motherf**ker!’ it. [laughs]”

“I think the WWE Hall of Fame is the fakest Hall of Fame there is. I mean, they don’t honour wrestlers, they just try to [induct] who can sell tickets. Tickets are the next thing.”

Rob Van Dam has not yet been confirmed as entering the WWE Hall Of Fame by the company. RVD would be joining Molly Holly and Eric Bischoff in the Class of 2021.

The WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony will air on Peacock and the WWE Network on Tuesday, 6th of April.
