Mick Foley Says Sabu Inspired A Generation
Mick Foley had the following to say after reading the recent WWE.com article about Sabu:
A great article on Sabu, whose contributions to the wrestling business have gone largely overlooked. Sabu and I had some great matches together – and I used them as one of my main inspirations when preparing for my WWE #Backlash 2004 match with Randy Orton. Seeing how hard Sabu and I worked in front of relatively small crowds, for relatively little money reminded me of what type of wrestler I had once been…and hoped I could become one last time. Whether we realize it or not, Sabu’s guts and innovative style has been inspiring wrestlers around the world for over 20 years.
Big E. Discusses Meeting Goldberg
Big E. revealed to the Troy Record that he was a big fan of Goldberg and previously met him as a fan:
I actually got to meet him at a signing probably about 15 years ago. It was a really pleasant experience. He was really polite. It really demonstrated to me that you can spend 20 or 30 seconds with a fan and you can leave a lasting impression.
He also discussed how tough the WWE schedule is:
Making sure you’re on time for your flight, getting into town, renting a car, you have to go to the gym, get food – It takes some discipline.
There are guys who are married and have kids. Just really having to get your work and personal life balanced, I think can be difficult.
