Sami Callihan actually suffered multiple injuries at Saturday’s Impact Wrestling tapings.
Callihan suffered a broken ankle at the tapings, and will likely be out of action until the spring of 2022 following surgery.
PWInsider has confirmed that Callihan suffered the broken ankle, and revealed that he also broke the tibia and fibia bones in his left leg.
Callihan underwent surgery in Nashville and was released from the hospital today. He is now expected to be out of action until the middle of 2022 at the earliest.
The injury came while Callihan was doing a suicide dive from the ring to the floor. There is still no word on who he was wrestling, or if the match will air during an upcoming Impact TV episode.
Callihan was supposed to reunite with Jon Moxley as the Switchblades and face the reunited Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards (The Wolves) on October 30 for The Wrestling Revolver’s “Tales From The Ring” event in Clive, Iowa. No word yet if the match will still take place with a replacement for Callihan.
