Although he plays a malicious character with no remorse when he's inside the squared circle, Sami Callihan is urging the wrestling community to come together like never before during the Coronavirus outbreak and says that he will not be appearing at any wrestling events until the global pandemic is more contained.
Making the statement on his Twitter account, this comes amid uncertainty surrounding wrestling event set to take place during WrestleMania 36 weekend in Tampa, Florida. Sami says that at this time it is not about characters or storylines but about keeping one another safe.
Fuck characters, fucks storylines.... our safety is the most important thing.— ... (@TheSamiCallihan) March 13, 2020
Until this gets better I’m not going to ANY wrestling shows.
I beg the world to be as safe as possible in this extremely scary time.
Let’s join together like never before.
We can get through this.
At this time, a slew of wrestling events, from WWE and independents, have been canceled. Wrestlecon, the convention hosting IMPACT Wrestling’s TNA reunion show during WrestleMania weekend, has said that their status completely depends on the final decision made regarding WrestleMania 36.
