They certainly don't need Sabu, whose last singles match of any length contained more blown spots than the entirety of SmackDown in 2006.
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
Makes perfect sense in the wrestling world though. the loser of the #1contendership match gets a free tv match, with no big ppv revenue and the other guy gets a certified shot at a ppv, the big money place..
