Sabu is a world-renowned professional wrestler who is known for his wreckless style of wrestling. Sabu has competed in every major wrestling organization in the world and is considered by many to be a true innovator of aerial offense, as well as being one of the first wrestlers to utilize a table during a match on a regular basis; Terry Funk even claims Sabu as "the greatest innovator of professional wrestling in the last 40 years" in the Forever Hardcore documentary in 2005.

A broken arm, a severed fingertip and a partial scalping

On April 15, 2006 Sabu competed in a six-man tag match (alongside Damien 666 and Hijo del Perro Aguayo) against L.A. Park, Silver King and Pierroth. Sabu's team lost by disqualification, but the match left Sabu with a broken arm, part of a fingertip was severed and a partial scalping.

Despite the severity of the injuries, he still appeared at the TNA pay-per-view Lockdown on April 23, 2006. He competed in a cage match against Samoa Joe for the TNA X-Division title, and lost in barely 6 minutes.

This is certainly a testament towards Sabu's relentless determination to compete, no matter what condition he is in.
