Updated at 3.34 pm ET with Sabu tweet.

Former two-time ECW Champion Sabu has reportedly suffered a “medical emergency” on the floor of the Squared Circle Expo in Indianapolis on Saturday.

The organisers of the convention took to Twitter and Facebook to make the following statement:

ATTN: Due to having a serious medical emergency while on the show floor, Sabu will not be appearing for the remainder of the Expo. He is currently in route to a local medical facility.
 
All pro photo op for the ECW pillars pro op and Sabu/RVD pro op will be refunded CASH IN HAND at the pro photo op at their scheduled times.
 
Our thoughts are with Sabu and all of his ECW colleagues at this time as we await for some hopefully positive news on his status.
 
Thank you for understanding.
Sabu later posted a tweet noting that he was doing better. It stated:
Hello everyone I am doing better and thank you for your well wishes.
Sabu, real name Terrance Michael Brunk, is 58 years old. Trained by his uncle, Ed “The Sheik” Farhat, he held the ECW World Heavyweight Championship twice and the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship once.
 
Outside of ECW, he wrestled for WWE, TNA, WCW, New Japan Pro Wrestling, All Japan Pro Wrestling, and Big Japan, along with many independent promotions. 
 
POST Wrestling extends our best wishes to Sabu for a speedy recovery.
