“The Draw” Sami Callihan has quickly become one of the most popular wrestlers outside of the WWE in 2018. Since the Eddie Edwards incident, Callihan has risen massively in popularity.
During a recent media call, Wrestling Inc.had a chance to speak with the Callihan Death Machine. Callihan spoke on his career in 2018 and how people might consider him The Undertaker of Impact Wrestling.
I’m me wherever I go. At the end of the day, I’m The Draw. It doesn’t matter what company I work for. Lucha Underground, MLW, Impact Wrestling, it doesn’t matter where I go. I’m the top guy and there’s a reason for that.
I’m making history right now. I’m one of the first people, if not the first person, to work for three national television programs at the same time. I’m on TV every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Who else in professional wrestling history could ever say that?
We do things our own way and that’s why we are where we are. People want to wrestle oVe. People want to wrestle Sami Callihan because, for lack of better terms, I am The Undertaker of wrestling right now, especially Impact Wrestling. If people wanna be famous, they wrestle me, because they know they’re gonna get more buzz than they’ve ever got in their life.
Look what happened to Eddie Edwards. Look what happened to LAX once they feuded with oVe. Look what’s happening now to Pentagon Jr. I’m bringing him to an even bigger echelon than he was before. Anyone who wrestles me knows their bank account’s gonna look better at the end of the night. That’s why I can be a piece of s–t and do what I want and you still have to continue to work with me.
Calling himself the new Undertaker might be a stretch, but it’s hard to deny how quick he’s risen in popularity since January.
