Sami Callihan has made his Impact wrestling debut. In 2013, Sami Callihan became a star for WWE’s NXT Wrestling, as he took on the name of Solomon Crowe. He ended up getting released by WWE in November 2015 after requesting to move on.
Since then, Callihan returned to the independent circuit but just made his debut for Impact Wrestling at Bound For Glory, according to Wrestle Zone.
During his first appearance with Impact, Callihan appeared prior a match that took place between his friends oVe (aka The Crist Brothers/OIFK) and LAX, the company went backstage and teased his character.
What’s interesting is that Callihan ended up beating down a member of LAX that looked like Homicide. He also did his trademark thumbs up, thumbs down hand gesture. Later on, Callihan helped oVe win their 5150 Street Fight against LAX as he power bombed Ortiz into a table.
As you can see in the video below, oVe did a post-match promo with Callihan.

Callihan will be participating in New Japan Wrestling’s 2017 World Tag League. He will team up with one of their fastest rising stars in Juice Robinson.
We still find it interesting that Callihan left WWE just over two years ago. He came in with a similar pedigree as some of the other top indie talents that made a huge splash in NXT, though he didn’t make the same Impact.

Callihan is only 30 years-old, so he could end up deciding to rejoin WWE at some point in the future, but Impact is starting to shape up to be an interesting show.
Even though Callihan is still a young wrestler, he’s been in the industry since he was 19 years-old, after he joined the Heartland Wrestling Association back in 2006. He also spent time with Chikara, Insanity Pro Wrestling and Combat Pro Wrestling during that time as well.
Callihan ended re-joining Combat Pro Wrestling this year. He’s really been all over the independent circuit and seems to enjoy that more than going after stardom within the WWE.
Comment below and give us your thoughts on Callihan joining Impact as well as taking part in New Japan Wrestling’s World Tag League.
