Sami Callihan, Eddie Edwards, and Alisha Edwards Segment 

Sami Callihan: Since day one of me being in this company, I’ve held it on my back, I have dug it out of the trenches and made it the company that it is today. IMPACT Wrestling needs the draw Sami Callihan a whole hell of a more than the draw Sami Callihan needs IMPACT Wrestling. And that’s why I get away with what I get away with. I mean, let’s look at the history books. The moment that set IMPACT Wrestling on fire, TMZ, all the dirt sheets, everyone around the wrestling world was talking about it,  The Infamous Baseball Bat Incident, the moment when I hit Eddie Edwards in the face with a baseball bat. The best thing that ever happened to his career. Hell, Eddie Edwards should be thanking me because I made his ass relevant.

And since i’m a giving person, what the hell, i’ve had the people in the back load up the clip, let’s go ahead and roll that beautiful bean footage. Damn, I am good looking. Damn, it gets better every time I watch it. Look at Eddie Edwards, that dumb ass just doesn’t learn. He keeps sticking his noise into my business and he keeps getting his ass beat. This is something that’s destined to happen to forever. It’s Eddie Edwards getting his ass beat by the draw Sami Callihan before I force him out of this business. So, what’d I do? I said, what the hell, let’s do this again, let’s hit Eddie Edwards in the face with a baseball bat again and make the ratings go up. That incident, hell, that incident got Ken Shamrock suspended.

But don’t worry, he’s doing great, he’s taking a nice needed vacation while The Draw Sami Callihan holds things down. The sequel, yeah, I like that. And like I said, since i’m in a giving mood, I’ve had them load that clip also, let’s go ahead and roll the footage. Idiots, I said, let’s roll that footage. No, you better stop because i’m not in the best mood. Look at you, what are you, 5 foot tall? You want to come down here and fight The Draw Sami Callihan? Look what happened to you the last time you stepped in the ring, you almost got pile drove by Eric Young, but there is a big difference between me and Eric Young. He has way better manners than me. If you step one foot in this ring, i’m gonna break your freaking neck.

Alisha Edwards: Oh, you think you’re gonna break my freaking neck? Well, guess what, Sami? Unlike last time, I didn’t come alone.

Eddie Edwards attacks Callihan from behind. Edwards prevents Callihan from grabbing the baseball bat. Callihan retreats to the backstage area to the close the segment.
