Sabu recently spoke with PTM’s Vinny Vegas for an in-depth shoot interview in conjunction with Hannibal TV dubbed, “SABU: Behind The Scars.”
During the discussion, the ECW Original and pro wrestling legend spoke about Ric Flair frequently trying to embarrass him by refusing to shake his hand behind-the-scenes during their respective runs in WWE.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he tells the story, as well as a complete video archive of the “SABU: Behind The Scars” shoot interview.
“Ric Flair, he’d come in the dressing room and shake everybody’s hand and skip mine. I’d put my hand out, he’d skip it and embarrass me. I’d go to shake everybody’s hand and I’d go to him, I’d put it out and he’d turn his back on me. He’d turn his back and I’d try to get a handshake from his back, so I stopped putting my hand out for him.
“I don’t know, but there’s no reason for him to be jealous of anybody. He’s top of the world. He always was and he always will be. There was no reason for him to be jealous. But I’ve seen him and heard him stepping on younger guys when he didn’t have to. He was already on top, he was world champion.”
