The final moments of this week’s episode of Impact Wrestling, which aired Thursday evening on Pop TV, featured footage of Sami Callihan accidentally blasting Eddie Edwards with a baseball bat.
As noted, the idea going into the segment was for Callihan to hit a chair that was placed on top of Edwards, but the bat ended up grazing the chair before nailing Edwards in the eye. Edwards was then rushed to a local nearby hospital.
The incident blew up on the internet and on social media following the taping several weeks ago, and drew reactions from all kinds of pro wrestling figures and personalities. One of whom was Jim Cornette, who accused Callihan of being “shoddy and careless.”
In a new interview, Callihan responded to the legendary pro wrestling manager / promoter, stating, “This hurts Jimmy…. I’ll just keep watching my bank account go up.”
NXT wrestler Kassius Ohno ended up responded to Callihan on Twitter.
“Really? Really? There is ZERO correlation between how much money you make [and] what happened in that ring,” wrote Ohno. “You should be embarrassed. ASHAMED.”
