As we noted late last night here on the website, Dragon Gate USA star Sami Callihan worked a dark match at SmackDown last night, losing to Johnny Curtis. Callihan has reportedly been on WWE’s radar for some time and he reportedly received good reviews for his attitude and ring work. There are several Callihan supporters within WWE, but his size has always been the issue with him getting signed.
Callihan hasn’t signed with WWE at this time and is still booked for the DGUSA iPPV trilogy on 11/2 in Everett, MA (vs. Samuray Del Sol), 11/3 in Voorhees, NJ (vs. El Generico Best of Three Falls) and 11/4 in Long Island, NY (vs. CIMA). Callihan is under contract to DGUSA, but the company has willingly released talents in the past if they can get work with WWE.
Along with Sami Callihan, Ricky Reyes was also at this week’s WWE TV tapings. Reyes has been on the WWE’s radar for some time.
