Following the most recent episode of Impact Wrestling, the injury Eddie Edwards sustained at the hands of Sami Callihan at the tapings has gained mainstream attention.

As reported on by TMZ, Edwards took a baseball bat to the face which has resulted in a broken orbital bone and a broken nose. He is lucky to have not suffered any permanent injuries to his eye, as doctors expected.

Callihan reportedly felt terrible about the accident and was emotional behind the scenes, but you wouldn’t see that coming if you’ve been paying attention to social media, or TMZ themselves.

Check this clip out for what Callihan had to say on the incident:

Jim Cornette took to his Twitter account, furious with the news that came out.

Taking this as a joke, Callihan responded, saying he’ll just keep watching his money rise.

This prompted NXT Superstar and indie veteran Kassius Ohno to respond to Callihan.

It is likely that Callihan is attempting to take his heel persona to another level, being the worst (most evil) wrestler on the planet.

For now, Edwards appears to be fine and appeared for TMZ himself during a segment to explain to fans what exactly happened.
