Talk is Jericho Recap w/ Sami Callihan – IMPACT Baseball Bat Incident, Dealing With Online Criticism, Promoting Indie Shows, More!

Jericho welcomes Sami Callihan to the show.

Jericho opens the show by asking Callihan about the recent incident at an Impact television taping. Callihan was executing a spot with Eddie Edwards where he placed a steel chair on Edwards, and then attempted to strike the chair with a baseball bat. Unfortunately there was an error and the baseball bat slipped, striking Edwards in the face.

Callihan points out that he initially felt terrible about the incident, pointing out that he obviously didn’t try to strike a man in the face with a baseball bat on purpose. He spoke to Edwards following the incident, but the two men haven’t talked much sense. He admits that as the days have passed he doesn’t feel the need to feel sorry about this anymore. He doesn’t want to live in the past, and what’s done is done.

He mentions that this incident has soured him on the wrestling business somewhat because a lot of fans are attacking him online demanding an apology. He points out that the wrestling business is fake, and he doesn’t know when fans decided that they have so much power over the events they see play out on their television.
