Sabu reveals the incident with Stephanie McMahon

Stephanie had asked Sabu to read a three-page script at a television taping before the pay-per-view in December 2006. The ECW legend tore up the script and walked away because he thought that was something his character would do. Speaking in a Title Match Wrestling video, Sabu recalled how Stephanie McMahon wanted him to read the script again:

“They didn’t try to cater to me at all,” Sabu said. “They just treated me like I was another guy….Stephanie McMahon, she wasn’t taking no for an answer. She either took no for an answer or she got rid of it [the problem]. I was supposed to be in an Elimination Chamber match that Sunday. They had me do an angle where I hurt my arm, and they took me out of it.”

Sabu further added that he could barely read the script, let alone memorize it. He was ultimately removed from the Elimination Chamber match on the day of the show and Hardcore Holly was named as the replacement.
