EDDIE EDWARDS VS. SAMI CALLIHAN TO HEADLINE IMPACT WRESTLING THIS THURSDAY

By Mike Johnson on 2018-02-24 09:30:00

The main event for this Thursday's Impact Wrestling on Pop will be Eddie Edwards vs. Sami Callihan, the bout where Edwards was injured after a spot where a baseball bat was used and cracked Edwards full force in the face after it rebounded off a steel chair.

We are told the match (described to us as "incredible" by a production source) as well as the baseball bat spot and its aftermath will be featured in its entirety and that the company does not shy away from showing the spot.

The baseball bat spot led to Edwards being immediately rushed to the hospital after suffering a broken nose and several additional broken bones in his face.  The cuts resulting from the spot also needed to be glued shut.  Edwards joked after the bout during an Impact Wrestling media call that he ended up with a "pretty sweet" black eye as well as some issues with his vision.
