Wasn't sure how this would affect DGUSA, so I'm posting it here.
Prior to the Extreme Reunion show on Saturday, Sabu was rushed to the hospital. He did not show up to the fan convention that afternoon and organizers were worried. Police noted that he was in an intoxicated state when found. The story they're saying for now is that Sabu had an allergic reaction to medication he was taking.
Sabu was scheduled to face Shane Douglas, who put together Extreme Reunion, in the main event. His going to the hospital was not the only incident that happened as Justin Credible was kicked out after being found passed out backstage just as the show was getting underway.
I understand that the show had a sold-out 2,400 in attendance, but they immediately turned given how bad everything was turning out (although they enjoyed Jerry Lynn vs. Devon Storm enough to chant "Thank you Jerry" and "Thank you Crowbar"). When Douglas came out for his match, reschedule to face Too Cold Scorpio, fans were chanting "Refund" and "Go back to Target" at him. They announced a return in June, but the fans booed it mercilessly.
UPDATE: Gabe just Tweeted that Sabu is doing fine.

Here's Douglas' reaction concerning the event.
Very professional. It's too bad for Douglas since it sounds like folks took it out on him when it wasn't his fault. I hope Incredible gets punished for this. What a crappy thing to do to a sold out crowd like that. Don't get what people see in him in the first place.

From everything i read it IS clear that certain "pros" didn't respect and appreciate the fans enough to represent themselves/ecw/etc. There were others,like mike "nova" bucci,tracey smothers and hc loc who just said no. NONE of the extreme women were even INVITED as far as i know. Between that,audio problems,raven NOT WORKING HIS MATCH the signs are clear to just stop these shows...
