During a recent appearance on the “Battleground” podcast, Impact Wrestling Superstar Sami Callihan commented on Jimmy Jacobs replacing him against Jon Moxley at tonight’s Wrestling Revolver Tales event, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On Jimmy Jacobs replacing him against Jon Moxley: “As soon as I went down with the injury, I wasn’t going to replace myself with someone else to make it a tag match because I don’t believe I could put anyone in there who could have lived up to the hype of me and Moxley reunited to take on the Wolves. I knew Moxley had to be in a singles match. Jimmy Jacobs was the first guy I thought of because there are a number of people I could put in there with Jon Moxley, but it had to be something special for Moxley’s debut in Revolver. I called that favor to Jimmy Jacobs. For people that don’t know, Jimmy Jacobs and Jon Moxley had one of the most violent and hottest feuds in Independent wrestling history.”
On Jacobs’ past history with Moxley: “If you watch Jimmy’s promo, this is more than them just wrestling each other throughout the years. He said in the promo that he was one of the writers for WWE when Moxley really wanted to leave and said creative was terrible. I think Jimmy took offense to that and it’s something that is a really cool story.”
Jimmy Jacobs vs. Jon Moxley in an Iowa Street Fight will be taking place later tonight at Wrestling Revolver’s Tales from the Ring event.
