One of the best feuds going today in Pro Wrestling continues this Saturday at IMPACT Wrestling Bound For Flory. Eddie Edwards will be facing Ken Shamrock, who will be inducted into the IMPACT Hall of Fame earlier in the night. Sami Callihan will be ringside as he’s been the one to help usher in this new attitude for Shamrock.
During the final episode of IMPACT Press Pass, I had the opportunity to chat with both Sami Callihan and Eddie Edwards on the event and their thoughts.
You can read the entire transcript below, or watch the Press Pass in full here.
Joey Karni- The Angle Podcast: "Thanks for having me on. How are you guys? Joey Karni from The Angle Podcast. This question is for both Eddie and Sami: Eddie Edwards and Sami Calliahn is one of the greatest feuds in impact history. Now with the addition of ken shamrock, HOF’r Ken Shamrock. This match at BFG is probably one of if not the biggest match on the card. What does it mean to you to have the company put you in this position on their biggest night of the year?"
Sami Callihan: "Well I’ll answer this first Eddie because you seem to answer all the other questions, you never want to be the gentleman and let me answer first. It’s a great feeling! It’s a pat on the back. It’s them telling us you know what, you’re really good at professional wrestling, which we already know. Ken Shamrock going into the Hall of Fame and me ushering Ken Shamrock into a new era in being The World’s Most Dangerous Man, just like you said, we’ll be the top thing on the PPV whether you like it or not."
Eddie Edwards: "You know honestly like Sami said, we are the heart and soul and I can speak for myself like I live and breath, and die IMPACT Wrestling. This is what I am, this is what I do and Sami feels the same exact way. Nobody has flown the IMPACT flag higher than we have. You know it’s something we take pride in. So any time they put us in a spot to go out there and steal the show, and it doesn’t matter what the match is, we’re gonna go out there, we’re gonna leave our heart and soul out there because that’s what we do. You know, we do it all for IMPACT Wrestling, this is what we want to do. We want to help take it to the next level. We want to be at the forefront of the IMPACT Wrestling army. We want to be out there leading everybody. We want to be the guys that say hey get on our backs and we’ll take you to the promise land. That’s what we go out there and do. And that’s the one thing I do have respect for Sami, because I know he feels the same way. We go out there, we try to kill it, and we do it for IMPACT Wrestling."
Eddie Edwards: "Thank you brother."
Sami Callihan: "Thank you brother." (making fun of Eddie)
Josh Matthews: "Thank you Joey for your question for both Eddie and Sami Callihan. Level of mutual respect for each other it’s great to see before Saturday night."
