ECW legend Sabu announces retirement from in ring competition. 

Sabu (real name Terry Michael Brunk) who is well known to the Wrestling world as Sabu, has recently announced his retirement after a nearly 40 year career. 

Dubbed the Homocidal, Suicidal, Death-Defying Houdini of Hardcore, he was best known for his work in the extreme world of ECW, winning their world championship and having memorable and often gruesome matches. 

The last time fans saw Sabu in a wwe ring was back in 2007 in a stable named the 'ECW Originals' alongside Tommy Dreamer, Sandman and WWE Hall Of Famer Rob Van Dam. 

In an interview with Wrestling Shoot Interviews he said this: 

"I’m not doing real good. I hurt my back about a year ago and it’s still been hurting. I wrestled a couple of weeks ago but I shouldn’t have. I’ve only wrestled like twice in the last year...I only went to the gym a couple of times the last year ’cause I hurt my back. I’m probably not gonna wrestle no more… I’m probably just gonna do autograph signings and personal appearance-type stuff ."

This seems to mark the end of the career of Sabu, however this may only last a short while as he's also stated that he would get back in the ring, if it was against the Beast incarnate Brock Lesnar. 

"I’d definitely get back in the ring for Brock Lesnar, I’d love to wrestle him. Especially if it was my final match, I’d love to wrestle him… He’s the best, he’s a shooter, he's a good worker, he’s my kind of opponent. I like big guys, I like wrestling big guys. I don’t like wrestling guys like me because it’s not that interesting. It’s more interesting wrestling a guy like me against a guy like Brock Lesnar."
