Former ECW Champion Bobby Lashley made his return to professional wrestling last Friday night at an event promoted by Booker T's PWA promotion in Pasadena, Texas. Lashley went over Jared Steele at the show. According to live reports, Lashley worked hard and even took a nasty bump into the ring stairs. Lashley came out to his old WWE theme music and used the Spear as his finisher. Lashley's ring attire was the same as it was in WWE and he did not look any different than he did when he worked for WWE.
Sabu did not work the main event of the XPW Reunion show this past weekend. He pulled out due to an injury but was still in attendance. Sabu has been battling many injuries for some time, but right now the major one is the current state of his back. He is in constant pain, and Sabu told friends that he needs back surgery; which would place several rods in his back. He is in such bad shape that he can't, or shouldn't be bumping around in a wrestling ring. Even if he has surgery, there are no promises that he can return to the ring.
