Sabu Returns Indie Hall Of Fame Deposit; GCW Donates It To LGBT Group

Sabu has returned his Indie Hall of Fame deposit, and Brett Lauderdale is donating it towards a great cause instead.

For those unaware, GCW hosted an Indie Hall of Fame in Philadelphia during WrestleMania 40 weekend. The class was scheduled to be Sabu, The Briscoes, Steve Corino, Trent Acid, and Kevin Hogan. Unfortunately, the ECW legend decided not to show up.

According to Game Changer Wrestling owner Brett Lauderdale, Sabu took the $300 deposit but didn’t want to get into an elevator to attend the ceremony.

While Sabu initially took to social media to respond by simply stating that he had changed his mind, Lauderdale posted an update on social media very early this morning to reveal that the ECW legend reached out to the company to return the deposit, which he in turn donated to a good cause, tweeting out:

“Tonight, Sabu reached out to GCW & returned the deposit ($300) he received for the Indie Hall of Fame. I appreciate the gesture & want to thank/reiterate my respect for Sabu. I’ve decided to redirect the money in the form of a donation to The William Way LGBT Community Center,” Brett Lauderdale said in a tweet.
