Sabu torched Dory Funk with a fireball during a main match taped at the Funking Conservatory in Florida on May 28 for Dory Funk Jr.’s online BANG TV show. The press release from the Funking Conservatory stated that Dory had applied his twisting toehold when Sabu delivered a fireball to the face, which scorched Dory’s face with “a raw open burn.” The Funking Conservatory said, “Dory has no eyebrows left and burn spots all over his head, neck, and even his arms. Right now, it appears all is going to be fine and the burn spots will heal.” The angle is expected to play out over several weeks as Dory debates whether he should press charges against Sabu for the damage.
