You can find some highlights from WrestleZone’s interview with Callihan below.
Be sure to tune into Impact Wrestling’s Crossroads event this Thursday night at 8 pm EST on PopTV.
On what Callihan was thinking as he broke Eddie Edwards‘ orbital socket by blasting it with a baseball bat last week on Impact Wrestling:
SC: I’m kind of getting sick of this topic at this point. This is professional wrestling and the fact that this is such an issue boggles my mind. The fact that so many of the boys in the back are so upset. The fact that so many of the fans are upset. They say I need to take responsibility and apologize for my actions. It’s absolutely ridiculous.
Did Owen Hart apologize to Stone Cold after he broke his neck? Did he go out and say, “I am so sorry for hurting this guy!” Did Bubba Ray Dudley go out on TV and social media and apologize after the first One Night Stand PPV for almost ripping off Tommy Dreamer’s ear with a reckless kendo stick shot? I don’t think so. That’s why this is such a stupid, status quo conversation. Sure, I hit a dude in the face with a baseball bat. You can see in my eyes I’m thinking, “Oh crap, I just hit a dude in the face with a baseball bat,” but I didn’t feel bad about it and I don’t apologize for it.
On if he’s spoken with Eddie Edwards since the incident:
SC: I legit maybe only saw him for thirty seconds and then they were rushing him out to the ambulance. We haven’t really talked because he isn’t answering my calls. I am just letting him be.
