ECW legend Sabu made a surprise appearance on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, aligning himself with Adam Cole and Roderick Strong against the Jericho Appreciation Society ahead of Sunday’s Double Or Nothing 2023 pay-per-view event.
In a recent interview with Brandon Walker for Rasslin’, Adam Cole noted that Sabu’s surprise appearance was nothing short of a last-minute call. He said,
“Oh my God, how incredible. Listen, I think over time, and this is pretty wild to think about, but when I was younger watching ECW, Sabu was one of my absolute favorites. It’s so weird to think as time goes on, because again Sabu was a student of the game, to think that I had his respect enough for him to help me with the J.A.S is pretty damn cool. It was absolutely a last minute decision. It’s great to have Roderick Strong there, but again, this match Sunday is Unsanctioned and we know that the J.A.S is going to be involved, so I took a shot in the dark. I talked to a friend of a friend, and reached out to Sabu. There’s nobody crazier or more prepared for an Unsanctioned match then Sabu. It all came together last minute man.”
