• Impact Wrestling Star Involved In Big Controversy At Indy Event
All American Wrestling (AAW) held a wrestling event in Chicago at the Logan Square Auditorium this past Friday. Sami Callihan and Jimmy Jacobs faced off at the event but unfortunately, something controversial happened during the match.
According to PWInsider, the controversy arose when Jacobs was placed under a drum riser (stage) and Callihan stacked hard plastic chairs on top of him. Someone from the arena’s management came out and angrily warned Callihan on the mic to not break the chairs of the arena. This led to the match being finished in the ring with Callihan winning the bout.
After the match, the management asked the promotion to remove him from the venue. The security was called to the ring to escort him out of the arena. Callihan began shoving and cursing security members believing it to be part of the show. However, PWInsider reported that one security officer “made it clear they were packing a gun and were going to shoot him if he didn’t stop.”
AAW as a whole was almost thrown out of the arena after the incident. The hype for the show among the fans almost finished after the incident. However, the two sides agreed to continue the show for the fans after Callihan was sent backstage.
Callihan tweeted the following after the show:
