Sami Callihan can't wait to get his hands on Kenny Omega.
Speaking with Busted Open Radio, The Death Machine commented on his IMPACT World Championship match at Slammiversary, saying that he feels disrespected and plans on beating Kenny Omega within an inch of his life.
"No, this isn't going to be your typical 5-star, 6-star, 7-star match at the Tokyo Dome," Sami noted. "I'm going to beat Kenny Omega within an inch of his life. What he's done to IMPACT Wrestling, inside or outside what happens in the wrestling world, I feel blatantly disrespected. I think I have a pretty good track record of what happens when I feel disrespected. Tonight at Slammiversary, I'm telling you right now, I'm going to make Kenny Omega taste his own damn blood."
Although Kenny has had his fair share of hard-hitting matches in AEW, Callihan says he has bled buckets all around the world and sees the No Disqualification stipulation as an advantage. He added the following:
"Now that I am the top dog at IMPACT Wrestling, I'll be damned if I'm going to let a working relationship with another company come in and absolutely dog on IMPACT Wrestling. I'm not going to allow that to happen anymore. Tonight, win or lose, Kenny Omega ain't going to be walking the same after this match. He did his little 'Exploding Barbed Wire Match' at AEW, how cute. Him and Jon Moxley - But I ain't Jon Moxley. I have bled buckets all over this world. At the same time, I'm also one of the best professional wrestlers walking this planet today. That's truly dangerous. When I truly get in the zone there's no restriction because I can do whatever the hell I want."
Elsewhere in the interview, Callihan spoke about Don Callis and how he's not sure what he ever contributed to IMPACT Wrestling. Furthermore, he spoke highly of every division and believes that all preconceptions of IMPACT need to be thrown away because they are now one of the best promotions in the world.
