Rob Van Dam, known for his high-flying and risk-taking style in the ring, discussed the potential of one more match with Sabu.

He mentioned, “Absolutely, it can happen. I’ve definitely seen wrestlers in worse conditions than Sabu pull it off, a lot of guys have done their whole careers in worse condition than Sabu is with less mobility.”

RVD also touched upon a past idea of a joint retirement tour with Sabu. He recalled, “It was an idea that seemed like it might be feasible 10 years ago, maybe longer.
