Sami Callihan

Sami Callihan has shared a photo of his injured ankle after reportedly breaking it during a recent set of IMPACT Wrestling tapings.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer first reported Callihan’s injury on Twitter, noting that the former IMPACT World Champion underwent surgery for the injury:

“Sami Callihan suffered a broken ankle Saturday at the Impact tapings and had surgery. Looks to be out until spring 2022.”

Callihan was last seen on IMPACT Wrestling at August’s Victory Road pay-per-view when he teamed with his former arch-nemesis Eddie Edwards in a losing effort against Moose and W. Morrissey.

No other information has been made available about Callihan’s injury but Sami Callihan took to social media to share a photo of the injured ankle in all its gruesome glory.

Callihan has been part of IMPACT Wrestling since late 2017 when he debuted at Bound For Glory immediately forming Ohio Versus Everything. OVE feuded with LAX before going on to a lengthy feud with the current AEW Tag Team Champions, The Lucha Brothers. This led to a Mask vs. Hair match between Sami Callihan and Pentagon Jr. at Slammiversary in 2018 that Pentagon won leading to Callihan getting his head shaved.

One year later at Slammiversary in 2019 Callihan had a more successful night as he wrestled against Tessa Blanchard in the main event, defeating her in an Intergender match. Later in the year, Callihan captured the IMPACT World Championship from Brian Cage, holding the title for three months before losing the title to Blanchard at the beginning of 2020.
