Sami Callihan Says Kenny Omega Disrespected The Company He Loves, More


During a recent interview with talkSPORT, Impact Wrestling Superstar Sami Callihan commented on his ongoing feud with Kenny Omega, their match at Saturday night’s Slammiversary pay-per-view event, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Kenny Omega as Impact World champion: “Kenny Omega came to IMPACT Wrestling and not only disrespected our locker room, he disrespected the company I love. Everybody wants to look at me like the bad guy, but I’ve been fighting for IMPACT Wrestling since I stepped foot in the company. Why? Because I love IMPACT Wrestling. There might be some people on the roster that tries to use IMPACT, but IMPACT is where I always wanted to be. Everyone else is like ‘I want to go to WWE, I want to go to Japan’ – I’ve been there and I’ve done that. End of the day, my goal was to make IMPACT relevant again and I think over the past three years, without a shadow of a doubt, I have helped make IMPACT one of the top wrestling promotions on the planet once again.”

On his thoughts on fans returning at Slammiversary: “Fans are everything. They’re just as big a part of the show as the wrestlers in the ring and the people in the back – they mean everything. But, on the contrary, I think IMPACT did ‘Covid wrestling’ better than anyone else. I think it truly gave people a chance to see how good IMPACT’s storytelling is and how good it is on an episodic basis. I don’t think there is a better show weekly, I don’t think there is a more reliable and consistent show than IMPACT and I think we show that each and every week. As far as pay-per-views go, I don’t think anyone has better PPVs than us and that’s any company. That’s not me just tooting the horn of the company I work for; if you look at our track record for PPV, every single one we have is a PPV of the year contender and Slammiversary is our biggest show of the year and I think this is the PPV where it makes people go, once again, ‘Yo, IMPACT Wrestling is here to stay.’”
