Sami Callihan Talks IMPACT Wrestling Being Overlooked, What To Expect From Bound For Glory
IMPACT Wrestling’s Sami Callihan was recently interviewed by Wrestling Epicenter to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Callihan discussed finally challenging for a World Title with IMPACT, IMPACT being overlooked, possible contenders if he captures the title at Bound For Glory, and more.
Here are the highlights:
Finally challenging for the World Title at Impact:
Companies don’t want people like me as their World Champion. It doesn’t matter if it is WWE NXT, Lucha Underground, or here at Impact. But, through my hard work… The numbers don’t lie. There is a reason I’m “The Draw” and “The Draw” delivers results. Now, I’m going to be the face of this company and people are going to have to listen. Anything Sami Callihan touches turns to gold!
Impact being overlooked:
They say wrestling isn’t pulling the numbers they did in the 90’s! No! It’s pulling more numbers than they did! Because, people watch their content differently now. Wrestling is now on pretty much every day of the week and some people don’t watch just television anymore! Streaming services! People watch YouTube! There’s a reason that on social media every week, professional wrestling is one of the top trending things in the entire world!
Possible contenders should he capture the title at Bound for Glory:
I’ll work with the entire roster! I’m a diverse professional wrestler. It doesn’t matter if it’s hardcore, strong style, Lucha Libre! I’ll work with and try to elevate every single person on this roster and around the world!
Feeling like a star in LA:
I’ve been sitting here at LA Live looking out this window at the Staple Center, looking at the Xbox Center and I’m feeling like a star because I am one!
What to expect from Bound for Glory:
Once again, Impact Wrestling is going to put the wrestling World on notice! Slammiversary, for two years running, was one of the best pay per views of the year! Now, Bound for Glory this year! Some of the matches.. X Division Ladder Match will get crazy. Michael Elgin vs Marufuji! True dream match that only Impact Wrestling can bring!
You’ve got me and Brian Cage in the main event! I’m going to walk out the impact wrestling world heavyweight champion because it’s about time that a company put their stamp of approval on me and put me as the face of the company!
