Sam Beale has all the tools at his disposal to become a mega-star in wrestling.
Speaking with the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Scott D'Amore was asked about up-and-coming talents that he's excited about and that fans should keep an eye on. The Co-Executive Vice President of IMPACT offered up a darkhorse name; Sam Beale. He said the following:
“Here’s a darkhorse for you if you’ve been watching our show weekly. There’s somebody who’s made a couple appearances, a young guy by the name of Sam Beale, who is as green and as raw as can be, but he’s certainly showing some of the signs of somebody who could develop into a talent. So he may turn out to be the next mega-star in wrestling, he may fizzle out and disappear like so many others. But he’s somebody who’s a guy we have our eye on. He’s got a great attitude. He’s an unbelievable athlete. It doesn't hurt that he’s getting in the ring and working with a good friend of mine and Petey’s in Alex Shelley, who’s an unbelievable coach to be working with and him having that at his disposal is certainly going to help him.”
The 26-year old has only had three matches on IMPACT television, losing to Trey Miguel, Sami Callihan, and most recently to W. Morrissey.
Alex Shelley has been absent from IMPACT in recent months as he fulfills his obligations as a physical therapy clinician. His comments on the matter can be seen here.
