The latest one to be let go by WWE in their latest cutting spree is none other than the homicidal, genocidal, suicidal Sabu. Although this was not mentioned in the WWE.Com article, it appears that Sabu appeared several hours late to the ECW tapings this week, and didn't have any ring attire with him when he did arrive. He was abruptly sent home and was later released from his contract.
Also, according to PWInsider.Com, Sabu was unhappy with working for WWE, and what would you really expect after the way they were treating him in the last few weeks. Talk about degrading the legacy that is Sabu.
Well, on a personal note, that is the final nail in the coffin as far as the "new ECW" is concerned. While I had hopes in the beginning, that show is going to hell in a handbasket mighty fast, and this is the straw that broke the camel's back for me. I will most likely never watch the show again, it's just pure crap anyway.
