Sanity is one of the most underutilized NXT call ups ever. The group was special in NXT but did nothing on the main roster. But did you know they were supposed to have a different leader? Sami Callihan of Impact Wrestling revealed to us that he was supposed to be the original leader of the group before leaving WWE.
Callihan was known as Solomon Crowe at the time and left NXT in 2015. In an exclusive interview with WrestleTalk, Callihan was asked about who he would like to face from outside Impact. This is where he revealed he would like to face Eric Young because of their history. Here is the quote:
“Eric Young pretty much embodied what Impact Wrestling was from the golden days and I think that is a match that the entire wrestling world wants to see. I’ve heard it for years because I was supposed to be the leader of Sanity until I went off on my own and he stepped in and became the leader of Sanity. I think that match, me vs. Eric Young, we both use the same finishing move, we’re both very similar wrestlers. I think that match could do a lot for Impact Wrestling.”
Callihan wrestled in many places after leaving WWE before making his home in Impact. He has since had a run as Impact World Champion.
