There was a controversial end to Impact Wrestling Against All Odds, with Sami Callihan being fired and putting his World Championship match with Kenny Omega at Slammiversary in jeopardy.
Callihan was fired by Impact EVP Don Callis, after he attacked Omega and The Young Bucks following the match – which had ended when The Bucks attacked challenger Moose whilst the referee was down allowing ‘The Cleaner’ to pick up the win.
On last night’s edition of Impact, Callis was joined in the ring by fellow EVP Scott D’Amore, with the pair arguing about Callihan’s status until they were joined by Tommy Dreamer.
Dreamer was representing Impact Wrestling’s owners Anthem Sports, and made their position very clear.
Whilst Callis swore there would be consequences for his firing, by reinstating ‘The Draw’ it meant Callihan’s match with Omega for the Impact Wrestling World Championship can go ahead at Slammiversary.
Impact Wrestling Slammiversary takes place at the Skyway Studios in Nashville on Saturday, 17th July. The card currently stands as:
- Impact Wrestling World Championship: Kenny Omega (c) vs Sami Callihan
- X-Division Championship Ultimate X Match: Josh Alexander (c) vs Ace Austin vs Trey Miguel vs Chris Bey vs Rohit Raju vs Petey Williams
- Chris Sabin vs Moose
