Sabu being released from WWE is certainly no surprise. As we’ve been noting for weeks now he has been on thin ice and had his job saved on at least one occasion by Paul Heyman. With Heyman no longer with the company and RVD on his way out the feeling backstage was that Sabu would be let go. After he showed up late and a mess at last week’s tapings in Baltimore, WWE officials had enough and decided to make the cut then.
With his current run with the WWE Heavyweight Title, John Cena has now passed Bret Hart for the 6th longest WWE Champion of all time. Cena, who just recently turned 30 years old, is way ahead of Hart who didn’t even get his first reign as Champ until the age of 35. The only people that have held the strap longer than Cena are Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, Triple H, Pedro Morales, and Bob Backlund.
