This is the kind of thing you hate to see happen to anyone but as Jim Ross brilliantly once put it, “this ain’t ballet.”
Sami Callihan really took it to another level of violence on Impact Wrestling this week when he tried to execute a sick spot and it turned out being just heinous. But then again, inventive and insane violence is kind of Sami Callihan’s calling card at this point.
Callihan placed a chair over Eddie Edwards during an assault and hit the chair with a metal baseball bat. But Sami didn’t measure it properly because the bat didn’t stay on the chair and instead ricocheted off to smash Eddie in the face.
You can watch the brutal spot below and they showed it for real on television but they edited out all the blood and when he ran to the back afterward. This went down during their television tapings a few weeks ago and Eddie was hospitalized as a result of the spot went wrong. But although Edwards was really banged up after the botch he didn’t seem to let it stop him from showing up to the television tapings on the next night. He posted a few pictures to show fans just how bad the damage was. But I must warn you the pictures are pretty bad, well all of this is bad really.
But sometimes that’s the price you pay to really sell an angle I guess.
