That could mean something. As is the case in most jobs, wrestlers come and go from various promotions all the time. You never know when a wrestler might be done with a company, either by their own decision or on the company’s orders. What makes it even more interesting in wrestling is the fact that you might be seeing a storyline taking place. That seems to be the case this week.
The main event of this weekend’s Impact Wrestling Against All Odds event saw Kenny Omega successfully defend the World Title against Moose. Following the match, Sami Callihan appeared and attacked Omega and the Young Bucks. Callihan attempted to attack Omega with a baseball bat, but Impact Wrestling executive Don Callis, who manages Omega, fired Callihan to end the show.
This comes as Callihan is scheduled to challenge Omega for the World Title at Slammiversary on July 17. There is no word on whether Callihan is still expected to wrestle the match or if a replacement challenger will be named. Callis has recently been expected to wrap up his time in Impact Wrestling, as his backstage authority has been reduced in recent weeks.
Callihan has had quite the time in Impact Wrestling. Check out some of his better moments:
Opinion: This screams storyline, but it also seems that something might be changing in Impact Wrestling in the near future. Callis has seemed like he is going to be on his way out of the promotion for a good while now and that might be better for everyone. He is fine as a manager for Omega, but I’m not sure how necessary he is on Impact Wrestling television every week.
What does this mean for Callihan? Is Callis finishing up with Impact Wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.
