Will Paul Heyman survive?
August 29, 2006

For the last several weeks, Sabu has been consumed with becoming the ECW World Champion. And week after week, Paul Heyman has done everything he could to keep Sabu away from the ECW World Championship. But Tuesday night on Sci Fi, Sabu will be able to take out his frustrations on Heyman in his trademark environment – an Extreme Rules Match.

Several weeks ago, Sabu began demanding an ECW World Title shot, but Heyman kept turning him down, stating that it was in ECW’s best interest that Big Show remain the ECW World Champion. Heyman was afraid that Sabu’s suicidal, homicidal, genocidal, death-defying style would jeopardize his long-term investment in Big Show. But Heyman could only do so much to keep the two apart.

Sabu won a No. 1 Contender Ladder Match, defeating Rob Van Dam, to earn the opportunity to face Big Show at SummerSlam. Sabu did everything he could to walk away wit the gold, but he could not overcome Big Show’s strength. Just two days later, Sabu had a rematch with the extreme giant, but something in Sabu snapped during the match. The ECW original grabbed the ring bell and repeatedly bashed Big Show over the head, busting him wide open. Sabu was disqualified, but the damage had been done.

Now Sabu will have an opportunity to take out all of his frustrations out on Heyman in an Extreme Rules Match. Can Heyman survive a match against Sabu, let a lone an Extreme Rules Match? Tune in to ECW on Sci Fi at 10/9 CT to find out.
