Sami Callihan has shared his thoughts on IMPACT Wrestling, arguing that the promotion did ‘covid wrestling’ better than other companies.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, wrestling promotions have had to adapt their content. According to Sami Callihan, IMPACT had the best wrestling pandemic era.
Speaking with Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT, Callihan argued that every IMPACT pay-per-view nowadays is a show-of-the-year contender. Declaring that IMPACT is here to stay, Callihan said:
“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.'”
Callihan challenges Kenny Omega for the IMPACT World Championship at Slammiversary this weekend. It was recently announced that the title match will be a no disqualifications bout.
