Could Sami Callihan become All-Elite? His protege Swerve Strickland hopes so.
Callihan finished his time with Impact Wrestling earlier this year and is currently a free agent, one that AEW reportedly has its eye on.
Speaking with “Grapsody” Strickland shared that he would love to face Callihan should the former Impact World Champion sign with the company. He said,
“Of course, I want to go after that guy. That’s my mentor, man. I faced a lot of my mentors in the past in my career. Rey Mysterio was a big mentor to me back in Lucha Underground. Sami Callihan, when I had a really hot run on the indies and stuff. Sami was a big part of that. He’s a free agent out there, I hope to see him in AEW or wherever you want to go. I just want him to prosper in this business for a long time. He deserves that, brilliant mind.”
Former AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, who is a former tag-team partner of Callihan, is reportedly one of the loudest advocates within AEW for the company to hire him.
