Kip Sabian: Penelope Ford And I Rushed To Get Married Cause We Did Not Want Any Bad Omens

Kip Sabian did not want any bad luck in his marriage.

At AEW Beach Break in 2021, Sabian and Penelope Ford tied the knot before the wedding was crashed by Miro. Sabian and Ford are a real-life couple who actually got married off-screen before they tied the knot on screen.

Speaking on Sappenin, Sabian reflected on the wedding ceremony, both on-screen and off.

“We got engaged, and then the idea was pitched to us, ‘Do you guys want to do a wrestling wedding?’ ‘Yeah, sounds great.’ As a wrestler, as soon as you’re presented with TV time, you’re probably going to want to take the TV time. We thought we would have plenty of time to get married, but the timeline of the wrestling wedding got shot up. Don’t know of the reason why, but I guess there were changes in plans for stuff down the line, so they had to move it sooner. I’m pretty sure we had maybe three to four weeks to put together the wrestling wedding. I’m very big on bad luck and omens. I didn’t want to get pretend married before we got really married because, to me, it could be a bad omen for our real marriage. We had to rush to get that done. We didn’t want a big wedding anyway, we wanted to put our money into our house as opposed to our wedding. We did a courthouse wedding, but that was almost canceled. That was two days or the day before we got married before the TV wedding. That was almost canceled because there was a snowstorm. The night before we got married, they called us up and said, ‘hey, we can’t do it, the roads aren’t clear.’ We’re panicking. The next morning, we get a call, ‘If you get here within an hour, we can do it.’ We rushed to get ready, we let our family know, we rushed through the snow to the courthouse to do it. Two days later, we got pretend married and [Penelope] nearly broke her face on the cake because it was so hard,” he said.

Sabian is currently aligned with The Butcher and The Blade while Ford’s most recent match in AEW was in a winning effort alongside Sabian against Jeremy Prophet & Jessika Neri on AEW Dark: Elevation.
