[WWE News] As reported on WWE.com on Monday, June 8, 2009, WWE Superstar Umaga (Edward Fatu) has been released from his World Wrestling Entertainment contract. However, consistent with the practice of announcing wellness policy violations, it should be noted that Umaga’s termination was due to his second violation of the WWE Wellness Program and his subsequent refusal to attend a rehabilitation facility. http://www.wwe.com/inside/industrynews/10492878 ..

SABU OPENS UP ON YOUSHOOT

The long-silent Sabu has taken the YouShoot oath and spoke on a myriad of subjects from submitted questions on the popular DVD shoot series. Sabu’s candor is remarkable as the interview is visibly difficult for the shy wrestling superstar, given the nature of the show. But through his apologies for nerves and some stuttering, Sabu delivers like never before.

Sabu’s topics range from the obvious ECW and WCW questions to the not so obvious concerning rats and drugs, including his participation in the first ever YouShoot Roll-A-Joint Championship. The laughs are plenty, as is the seriousness of some of his comments which can certainly offend more than a few other workers in the business, like Kurt Angle, Necro Butcher, Vince McMahon, to name a few.

The DVD went onsale today at www.kayfabecommentaries.com
