Michael Elgin/Sami Callihan IMPACT Wrestling Backstage Fight

Following his IMPACT Wrestling departure as a result of #SpeakingOut allegations and controversy, Michael Elgin has found himself back in the headlines in the pro wrestling world after details of a recent backstage fight at an IMPACT taping with a former World Champion surfaced online.

Michael Elgin is no longer affiliated with IMPACT Wrestling after being accused of sexual abuse/assault, but it seems he had a rocky relationship with at least one wrestler there, as he reportedly got into a physical altercation behind-the-scenes at an IMPACT show with Sami Callihan.

Sean Ross Sapp at Fightful.com is reporting that not only has he heard of a "stories" that paint a picture of a "rough last few months" but one incident led to a physical altercation with another wrestler.

"The two recently were setting up a match that also involved Ken Shamrock, and disagreed on how the match should start. The disagreement escalated to the point where the two ended up fighting and Scott D'Amore had to step in. Not that it's related, but IMPACT also released a statement that Elgin will no longer appear on their programming. He was involved in the planned Slammiversary main event, and a Team Canada tease."

There are no details on how bad the fight got, or who if anyone was getting the better of the other, but what is for sure is that the altercation became heated and then physical to the point that it had to be broken up.
