Professional wrestling career

Training under the Sheik

Brunk was trained by his uncle, Ed Farhat (The Sheik),[1] and was initially trained to be a technical wrestler. He began his wrestling career in the Sheik's promotion, Big Time Wrestling, and was billed as being from Saudi Arabia under the ring name Sabu. Edward George Farhat (June 7, 1924 - January 18, 2003) was a professional wrestler best known as The Sheik (or The Original Sheik to distinguish him from the wrestler the Iron Sheik of the 1980s). ...


Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling (1991-1993)

He soon traveled with his uncle to Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling (FMW), where he received many of the cuts and bruises on his arms and torso for which he became famous. Brunk cleared all rumors that the cuts and bruises were self-induced in a shoot interview with RF Video, confirming that they were a result of numerous hardcore matches he was involved in -- he participated in over two dozen no-rope barbed wire death matches. Sabu often competed in Japanese hardcore matches, where he teamed with the Sheik, Tiger Jeet Singh and Horace Boulder. Sabu feuded with the likes of Tarzan Goto and Atsushi Onita in FMW.

He set a new record for the most stitches needed as a result of a wrestling match when he needed 111 stitches after a very violent match. ...


Extreme Championship Wrestling (1993-2000)

Brunk revealed in a shoot promo and in the documentary film Forever Hardcore that in fact it was not Paul Heyman that brought him into ECW but that he was at the right place at the right time. He was referred by a friend to Tod Gordon. Forever Hardcore is a professional wrestling documentary DVD that interviews wrestlers who participated in Hardcore Homecoming on June 10, 2005. ... Paul Heyman (born September 11, 1965 in Scarsdale, New York) is a professional wrestling manager, on-air talent, and former promoter formerly employed by World Wrestling Entertainment. ... Tod A. Gordon was the founder of Eastern Championship Wrestling, later Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). ...


According to the storyline, Sabu (who at that time often arrived to the ring by his handler, 911, strapped to a gurney and with a Hannibal Lecter-style face mask trying to break free - he claimed to hate this part of his gimmick as he was normally tired before he started his match) was an uncontrollable madman who could only be released from his bonds to wrestle his matches. Sabu also quickly became synonymous with table-breaking at this time; if a table was not destroyed during his match, Sabu would break a table with his own body after the bell had sounded. Sabu could not even look at a table without wanting to destroy it, which sometimes led to 911 having to restrain Sabu during backstage interviews if a table was present. Al Poling (born in New York City, New York) is an American professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, 911. ... Hannibal Lecter is a fictional character in a series of novels by author Thomas Harris. ...


One of the most notable aspects of Sabu's early career was his refusal to speak,[1] a gimmick that he inherited from The Sheik (who never spoke English in public to protect kayfabe). In his early career, Sabu was billed as being from Saudi Arabia, or Bombay, India. But in ECW, he was clearly heard to speak in the ring on several occasions and it was fairly common knowledge that Brunk was an American citizen from birth. This led to a joke at kayfabe's expense when Sabu began to be billed as hailing from "Bombay, Michigan". In professional wrestling, kayfabe (pronounced KAY-fayb) refers to the portrayal of events within the industry as real, that is, the portrayal of professional wrestling as unstaged or not worked. ...

"The Crippling Incident"

During the opening seconds of his match with Chris Benoit at November to Remember '94, Brunk got his neck broken accidentally by Benoit when he threw Sabu intending that he take a face-first "pancake" bump, but Brunk attempted to turn mid-air and take a backdrop bump instead. This incident earned Benoit his nickname "The Canadian Crippler". Christopher Michael Benoit (IPA: ) (May 21, 1967 – June 24, 2007) was a Canadian professional wrestler who wrestled for Extreme Championship Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling, and World Wrestling Entertainment. ...

The Night the Line Was Crossed and other notable feuds

His best matches during the early part of Sabu's career in ECW were his three way dance for the Heavyweight title at The Night the Line Was Crossed, against Terry Funk and Shane Douglas, which went to a 1-hour time limit draw and his tag team feud with The Public Enemy in which Sabu and his partner The Tazzmaniac captured the Tag Team Titles in a double tables match.

Another notable event occurred when, scheduled for a 3-way dance for the tag title, Sabu no-showed the event to accept a booking in Japan -- which led Paul Heyman to publicly and legitimately fire Sabu at the event.

He eventually returned to ECW the next year, and engaged in matches and feuds with the likes of Rob Van Dam. In the meantime, former-partner Tazmaniac (who had shortened his name to "Taz") began to publicly challenge Sabu at every given opportunity, but got no response. After a year of call-outs and insults from Taz, Heyman revealed that he had asked Sabu, as a friend, to ignore Taz's challenge. This standoff culminated in a grudge match at ECW's first pay-per-view, Barely Legal, which Taz won. The two continued to feud on and off for the remainder of Taz's ECW career. Sabu mentioned in a shoot interview with RF Video that he didn't want to work with Taz for this match because he had already wrestled him before and wanted to work with other talent. He also mentioned that Taz calling him out for a year was not planned. Paul Heyman convinced Sabu to wrestle Taz at Barely Legal. Pay-per-view is the name given to a system by which television viewers can call and order events to be seen on TV and pay for the private telecast of that event to their homes later. ... Barely Legal was the first professional wrestling pay-per-view event held by Extreme Championship Wrestling. ...


RAW invasion angle

Sabu was later included in the RAW invasion angle, in which ECW wrestlers invaded WWF's Monday Night RAW program and held ECW-style matches and angles on the show. One memorable moment occurred at this show when Sabu appeared during Taz's match and prepared for an aerial move off the "R" in the "RAW" lettered entryway onto Team Taz members, but instead accidentally fell off the "R". This was not planned which led to Sabu landing on top of Team Taz members and becoming an inside joke between him and Tazz backstage. This invasion angle also led to a heel turn for Sabu in ECW as he teamed up with Rob Van Dam and their manager Bill Alfonso to promote the virtues of the WWF product over ECW's. Sabu feuded with ECW loyalists "Tommy Dreamer" and "Jim Fullington/The Sandman" during this period. In professional wrestling, an angle is a fictional storyline. ...

No-Rope Barbed Wire match with Terry Funk

One of Sabu's most infamous matches was the No-Rope Barbed-Wire match with Terry Funk at Born to be Wired, a match which was promoted as being "too extreme even for ECW" - and with good reason: both men bled profusely. In one of the most memorable moments in ECW history, Sabu attempted the "Air Sabu" corner splash on Terry Funk. Funk moved and Sabu ended up colliding violently into the wire which tore open his biceps. He then asked his manager Bill Alfonso for some tape and after Alfonso went to get some Sabu began to tape the gash up, which was about 10 inches long. To this day, Terry Funk has stated that he has never seen anything like what Sabu did that night. The match ended with both men so badly tangled up together in the barbed wire that it took several ring technicians armed with wire cutters to free them from the predicament (on the DVD Bloodsport - ECW's Most Violent Matches released by World Wrestling Entertainment, Paul Heyman said that the match was "so gruesome, I never ever dared to schedule another one like it", and that they never had another Barbed-Wire match in ECW because "no one could top that one -- and in good conscience, I never wanted anyone to try").

AWF

Sabu has been noted as a member of the AWF (Australasian Wrestling Federation) roster in which he has so far wrestled three matches at the October Wrestlefest 2007 Tour. Sabu Defeated Il Cognito at Fairy Meadow, NSW on the 5th, October 2007. Steve Ravenous at Cardiff, NSW on the 6th, October 2007. And most notably wrestling AWF Champion at the time, TNT (Greg Bownds), to a 'No Contest' due to interference from The Platinum Players at Blacktown, NSW on the 7th, October 2007


Injuries

Brunk racked up an astounding catalogue of injuries during his ECW tenure, including broken ribs, broken jaw, and famously breaking his neck twice. The first time he broke his neck was during a match with Chris Benoit on November 5, 1994 in which communication problems appeared to be to blame as Benoit lifted Brunk over for a flapjack, but Brunk assumed Benoit was going for a back body drop. This caused Brunk to land directly on his head; the other was during a match against Taz in December 1998, when Brunk took a Tazplex through a table and landed wrong. Brunk was able to recover from the neck injuries and return to wrestling, and he even wore a neck brace in his return match in the United States a month following the injury at Taz's hands; by Brunk's account, however, he started actively wrestling in Japan on a short tour a little over two weeks after that injury.

Paul Heyman had tried to prevent him from working outside of ECW by suing him in court for breach of contract, when in truth Heyman was the one who had breached Brunk's contract.

In 2004, Sabu teamed with Raven to defeat Raven's former "Gathering" protégés, CM Punk and Julio Dinero. In March he began feuding with Monty Brown and Abyss, who outnumbered him on several occasions after Raven failed to "watch his back". Eventually Raven challenged Sabu to an empty arena match to be held on June 9, but Sabu refused to wrestle him, claiming that he had promised his uncle, The Sheik, that he would never fight Raven. Raven then waged a campaign against Sabu, disrespecting the memory of his uncle and assaulting Sabu's friend Sonjay Dutt, until Sabu finally broke and attacked him on July 23.

While injured, Brunk contracted a virus and was hospitalized, sidelining him for ten months. On December 12 a benefit show, A Night of Appreciation for Sabu was held to raise funds for him.

Style

Sabu wrestling CW Anderson at the ECW Arena in June 2006.

Sabu's wrestling style is unorthodox, consisting mainly of aerial and grapple moves performed with the aid of tables (which he is famous for smashing opponents through) and chairs, which he uses as weapons and as launching pads for some of his more death-defying moves. He is also famous for the invention of his triple-jump techniques, which involve jumping from a set-up chair onto the ring ropes and then springing off onto an opponent with a flying attack of some sort.

The ECW Arena, a bingo hall on the south side of Philadelphia served as the home of the seminal wrestling federation Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) from 1992 until the federations demise in 2001. ...


Sabu is also notorious for continuing to wrestle matches even though he has suffered serious injuries that require medical attention. An example of this was during the Stairway to Hell match with The Sandman where Sabu's jawbone was broken when he landed face-first on the steel guardrail outside the ring. Rather than ending the match early, Sabu actually duct-taped his jaw shut and continued to wrestle the match to its scheduled conclusion. During the aforementioned "Born To Be Wired" match with Terry Funk, Sabu legitimately tore open his biceps on the barbed wire. He taped it up on the spot and continued the match. Afterwards, he super-glued himself together to drive to the hospital where it took more than 100 stitches to close the wound. He refused to miss any matches because of that injury. James (Jim) Fullington (born June 16, 1963) better known by his ring name The Sandman, is an American professional wrestler, best known for his career with Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), where he was dubbed The Hardcore Icon. ...


Sabu's famous signature gesture, Magician of Arabia, is pointing to the sky while looking upwards, especially when entering or exiting the ring, or before performing an especially dangerous move (the gesture is often referred to as Sabu pointing to the heavens in tribute to his uncle The Sheik, even though he had been using the gesture many years before Sheik had died). Sabu has stated on camera, during a shoot interview with RF video, that the gesture "don't mean nothin...not really".
