Re: Sabu Blasts the HOF. Calls it fake
The same way people have thrown away or sold Grammy's, there will always be a wedge of the performers that are disgruntled; justifiably & unjustified.
The problem is that wrestling as a whole is & always has been a niche product, with some tremendous peaks where it permeated popular culture for a time but still at the core a niche. So when you're already viewed as a sideshow by the majority, you have no credible standing in sports, you have to carve out your own rules for honoring your own legacy.
He'd never admit it but that's why he's pushed himself as far as he has for far too long. When people treat what you do like shit, it pushes you to go out there and try even harder. Which leads to pain, injuries, disfigurement, handicaps, & Death. So for all the guys that have gone through this meat grinder of an industry, forsaking family, friends, children, birthdays always on the road, they deserve a night dedicated to them.
You get global exposure, chum around with fellow old bastards, new poor bastards in the midst of it, a midling Ring, & a contract with a little financial assistance for the use & immortalization of what you were able to bind together with your blood, sweat, & tears over the years.
It's what they all want, perhaps not with the E, but to be remembered, to be recognized, for that last bit of adulation as they're presented at the biggest showcase of the year, Wrestlemania. So you have to deal with the E, you play politics one more time to get what you deserve.
It's the industry.
