6 Ups & 6 Downs From Impact Wrestling (Nov 5)


6. Pointless Digs

Right at the top of the show, we were witness to the start of oVe's championship celebration for the new World Champion Sami Callihan. For whatever reason though, 'The Draw' took a dig at Chris Jericho and The Inner Circle, stating that real men drink beer as opposed to a little bit of the bubbly.

In other segments throughout the night, the new champion called Tommy Dreamer fat, then insulted Daga for not wanting a drink, with a fight between the two sides eventually being broken up by Rich Swann. Finally, they called Johnny Swinger a total mark.

None of these segments added anything to either the show, or Sami's credibility as the new Impact World Champion. His in-ring celebration towards the end of the show would've sufficed - less of these unnecessary segments.


While off school sick one day in November 2008, Adam sat down with Survivor Series on in the background. He was hooked ever since. With access to channels showing WWE and Impact Wrestling programming, he also keeps on top of ROH, PWG, NJPW, ICW, Defiant Wrestling, and PROGRESS Wrestling.
