Impact Wrestling over the past few years has always welcomed famous indie wrestler. Rob Van Dam and Michael Elgin are one of the few indie wrestlers that have recently joined Impact Wrestling. Sami Callihan is one of the most famous Impact Wrestling wrestlers, and he spoke about newcomers on the WINCLY podcast.
"People will talk all the crap they want on Michael Elgin but he puts on the best matches on pretty much every show he's fought on," said Callihan. "You can't not say the dude doesn't pour his heart into professional wrestling because there's no off night for Michael Elgin.
That could be in front of two people or 100,000 people and he's gonna go out and wrestle to the same standards." He then proceeded to speak about his failure to win his match with Rich Swann. It was for the X-Division Title.
He stated that Impact Wrestling probably does not want him to be the face of the company. "Probably that Impact management screwed me and don't want me to be the face of the company," stated Callihan. "That's what it boils down to each and every time when I get these big time matches and Impact throws a monkey wrench at the plans because they are afraid that Sami Callihan and oVe would be the face of their company."
