Welcome back. In almost any wrestling promotion, the World Title is what matters the most. Someone holding that title means that they have arrived as a major star and that they have become one of the most important people in the promotion. Even after they lose the title, they will always be a former World Champion and that has some value. One of those made his return this week after a long absence.
Former Impact Wrestling World Champion Sami Callihan made his return to the company on Saturday at Under Siege. Moose had come to the ring and said that he was hijacking the show, which caused the lights to go out and a video to play announcing Callihan’s return as he cleared Moose from the ring. Callihan had been out of action since September after suffering a broken ankle.

Opinion: Your mileage on Callihan may vary but he has been a star in Impact Wrestling since he debuted and his return should be no exception. Callihan is someone who can fight right into almost any spot and Impact Wrestling can always use more star power. This should be a nice boost for the company and that is always a good thing, as Callihan can get the fans a bit more invested.
What do you think of Callihan? Who do you want to see him do first? Let us know in the comments below.
