Sami Callihan & Tommy Dreamer In-Ring Segment 

Sami Callihan: I see you, Atlanta. I see, everything. And i’m not gonna do what you people think i’m gonna do and you know, just freak out. After I lost the Impact World Championship to Tessa Blanchard, I set myself aside for a couple of weeks, but I got my mind straight. I did some soul searching and I realized what’s really important now. The questions, I said the questions, why did I show up when I did and attacked the legend, Ken Shamrock by throwing a fireball into his face? The issues aren’t just with Impact Wrestling, they are with the entire wrestling world. Because in other companies, when a legend comes in, they push down all of their hard working talent to the bottom, but that shit doesn’t happen in Impact Wrestling.

When you come to Impact Wrestling, you have to earn your spot and i’m gonna be damned if Ken Shamrock is gonna earn a spot without going through The Draw first. And Shamrock wouldn’t want things handed to him, he’s not that type of person. Look at him, he’s in the best shape of his life, people are afraid of him, people legitimately thinks that he’s the world’s most dangerous man and that’s what offends me the most. ‘Cause while he’s trying to break people’s ankles, i’m hitting them in the face with a baseball bat and trying to set them on fire. So you want to talk about who’s the world’s most dangerous man? You’re looking at him.

– Sami Callihan gets interrupted by Tommy Dreamer.

Sami Callihan: Oh, how typical, another legend coming to the ring with The Draw, Sami Callihan.

Tommy Dreamer: Sami, I don’t have to speak for Ken Shamrock, but what I do have to speak for, is you trying to end a man’s career, throwing a fireball into his face and making the man blind. You see, my father lost his vision and I know what it’s like for someone, older in life not to be able to earned an income because of something that happen to them.

Sami Callihan: Aww, boo hoo, Tommy Dreamer offend again. Everyone, a round of applause for the living legend, Tommy Dreamer. That’s not good enough, a round of applause for Tommy Dreamer. Tommy, if you wanted the rub, all you had to do was ask, because we all know you have pull in the industry. Any time somebody starts to get a little bit of buzz, you magically show up in one of their segments. So, this is what I want everyone to do, get out your phones, we’re gonna make Tommy Dreamer’s day come true. So everyone, take a picture, post it online with #ExtremeLegend, add myself and Tommy Dreamer so he can get all the likes on social media and make himself seem relevant yet again.

Tommy Dreamer: Sami, you see where i’m from, we had veterans that helped the younger talents to try to learn from the mistakes that we’ve made in the past. Guys like, Terry Funk, Mick Foley and The American Dream, Dusty Rhodes. But you see, you’re a little troll, you use fear every single day on your social media platforms, you held up this company, but you see, I have been a rebel my whole life and I will fight for men and women in the back of Impact Wrestling. You know why? Because they deserve it, they work their asses off and I will use my platform for good and never back down from trolls or evil and bullies just like you.
