Sami Callihan’s reign of domination at IMPACT was suddenly halted as he incurred a serious ankle injury. The IMPACT superstar’s injury took place at TV tapings in September. Most speculation regarded his recovery said that the star won’t return before 2022. He is well on his way.

Callihan is a workhorse in Impact Wrestling and someone the company would likely prefer to have around for years to come. Callihan has now stated that he will return when supporters least expect it. He made an appearance on Busted Open Radio to discuss his recuperation from ankle surgery, which has kept him out since September.

“I think everyone misses me on IMPACT Wrestling. I got my screws out on December 23, I started taking my first steps a few days ago and the Callihan Death Machine is starting to lose weight. I’m starting to get stronger each and every day because I sat around for three months eating Chipotle every day becoming a fat slug, but now that’s over. New year, new Callihan, and now I get a chance to completely rebuild. When I come back to IMPACT Wrestling, there’s going to be hell to pay for a lot of people. I’ll go ahead and I don’t even know if I could say this on Sirius, but I really don’t give a damn — fuck you Moose. I don’t care if you’re the champion, I don’t care if you’re just being a dude on IMPACT Wrestling — when I come back to IMPACT Wrestling, I’m going to break your damn legs.”

Callihan injured his ankle during IMPACT’s September television tapings, according to F4WOnline’s Dave Meltzer, and will be sidelined until the spring of 2022. He said that people don’t know where he’s going or when he’ll return, and it’s something he might utilize to his advantage. He is a sucker for unexpected events. When he returns, it will be at a time when fans will expect it the least. But it’ll be sooner rather than later.


Sami Callihan admitted that it was difficult to think about missing Hard To Kill in January, but he’s back with a vengeance and is fighting to ensure that this never happens again. Callihan claims to have built a gym at his house and is now meaner and nastier than ever.
