Michael Elgin is out of IMPACT Wrestling, but he's had trouble there for a while.
After IMPACT announced that he'd not be used on their show, stories started to emerge of a rough last few months with the company. In one instance, it led to a physical altercation with another top star, as Fightful Select reported.
Fightful has learned of a physical altercation involving IMPACT Wrestling stars Michael Elgin and Sami Callihan. Fightful was told that the two recently were setting up a match that also involved Ken Shamrock, and disagreed on how the match should start. The disagreement escalated to the point where the two ended up fighting and Scott D'Amore had to step in. Not that it's related, but IMPACT also released a statement that Elgin will no longer appear on their programming. He was involved in the planned Slammiversary main event, and a Team Canada tease.
We weren't told who "won" the fight, but that it got heated, then physical, and talent had to break it up before Scott D'Amore stepped in. Elgin would work only one more match in IMPACT, an Xplosion win over Larry D. Callihan and Elgin worked with one another dozens of times before the incident.
