Ken Shamrock will clash with Eddie Edwards at IMPACT Wrestling Bound For Glory 2020 thanks to a suggestion by Sami Callihan.
IMPACT Wrestling past and present will collide on Saturday, October 24th, 2020, when Eddie Edwards goes one-on-one with Ken Shamrock. The catalyst for all of this is Sami Callihan. Shamrock returned on the September 29 episode alongside Callihan and he laid waste to Eddie Edwards.
Then, on the most recent episode of IMPACT Wrestling on AXS, Ken Shamrock could be seen showing some remorse for his actions but Sami Callihan would remind him of all of the social media engagement that his recent actions were garnering as proof that his new methods are a success.
Now, Sami tweeted out Edwards in Callahan should fight each other at Bound For Glory and IMPACT Wrestling obliged and made the match official.
I love when a plan comes together.— ₮ⱧɆ ĐⱤ₳₩ (@TheSamiCallihan) October 11, 2020
Since @TheEddieEdwards lost his rematch to @TheEricYoung, which I knew he would. It looks like he’s free at #BoundForGlory.
HERE’S MY CHALLENGE.
