It seems that Impact will be using the Eddie Edwards incident to fuel the heel run of Sami Callihan. Callihan responded to criticism from Jim Cornette recently, which led to Kassius Ohno calling him out.

TMZ recently released a video of the Death Machine, where he talked about the incident, stating that he doesn’t feel sorry for Edwards or remorseful for his actions. Callihan said that he should be the one being interviewed, not Eddie Edwards, who TMZ spoke with prior to this.
You can check out the video below. Callihan also has a message for Cornette near the end.
So it seems that Impact will be moving forward using Eddie’s injury for a storyline, possibly pushing Sami Callihan higher up on the card.
