Callihan made his presence felt (Photo: IMPACT Wrestling)IMPACT Wrestling: Against All Odds ended on a major bombshell as Don Callis fired Sami Callihan.
The unpredictable star made his presence felt after the Young Bucks helped Kenny Omega defeat Moose – and it cost him his job.
Saturday night’s IMPACT Plus event was headlined by a spectacular bout between Omega and his challenger for the IMPACT Wrestling World Championship, with the match being held at Daily’s Place.
The special setting meant the champ couldn’t rely on the Good Brothers, who were at the regular venue for Against All Odds as they lost to Callihan and Tommy Dreamer in a Street Fight earlier on.
However, Omega and his right hand man Callis had an ace up their sleeve in the form of Matt and Nick Jackson, with the AEW Tag Team Champions helped the promotion’s world champion defeat Moose in a high stakes match.
After Omega sealed the win with the One-Winged Angel, Sami hit the ring to attack the Bucks and lock his sights on Kenny with a baseball bat.
However, Callis – who is still a vice-president at IMPACT – shocked everyone by sacking the star before he could do too much damage.
With Omega retaining, he’s set for a championship showdown against Callihan at Slammiversary next month, so it will be interesting to see where things go from here, particularly on Thursday evening.
Elsewhere, Joe Doering looked very strong as he beat Japanese wrestling legend Satoshi Kojima in a pretty dominating performance.
Over in the X-Division, five former champions – Chris Bey, Petey Williams, Rohit Raju, Ace Austin and Trey Miguel – delivered an absolutely fantastic bout only hampered by its ending.
Miguel looked primed for a win, but Madman Fulton came out and dominated everyone, trying to help Austin to victory but the referee ruled the chaotic match a no contest.
Meanwhile, former WWE star W. Morrissey looked like an absolute star as he defeated Rich Swann in a brilliant match that proved his has truly arrived as a top-level talent.
