Sami Callihan stopped by the Wrestling Inc. podcast last week to talk about his next Wrestling Revolver show, Tales From The Ring, which takes place on October 28th from the Seven Flags Event Center in Clive, Iowa.
"Just listen to this talent: Ricochet, Joey Ryan, Brian Cage, Candice Lerae, Havoc, Jack Swagger, Jeff Cobb, Tessa Blanchard, Matt Riddle, OVE, myself, Shigehiro Irie from Japan, and many more," Callihan said. "You can watch us anytime and every time on our video on demand service via the High Spot Network."
During the conversation, we also picked Callihan's brain on the ongoing feud between Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor. On the Raw following the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, Wyatt transformed into his hallowed kin, Sister Abigail. Finally reveling the missing member of Wyatt's clan, it seems like Wyatt is taking the WWE Universe further down his supernatural rabbit-hole.
"When I first saw the sister Abigail stuff, everyone thought it was going to be a girl that they were bringing up to the roster or someone that they were bringing back. But I actually really like what they're doing."
Callihan expressed his excitement at Bray's latest development, stating that he understands where WWE is trying to take the character, and that he fully supports it.
"Some people may not understand it but I'm a horror aficionado so I knew exactly what they were trying to do. They're trying to do the same thing that they did with the movie The Skeleton Key or the same movie they did with Insidious where this person, Bray Wyatt, is a vessel for another character, this other person - this maybe witch character - this person that's not good that's possessing his body."
But not everyone in the WWE Universe is happy with the idea of Bray assuming both roles. Callihan recalls hearing other fans suggest that WWE was trying to make Bray transgender, a woman, or something akin to Goldust. Callihan, however, thinks fans are missing the mark.
"That's just how one-sided people's minds are. They're not trying to do that at all. They're legit trying to do something that's been done in the horror genre for years upon years upon years upon years. And I'm really interested to see where it goes because he'd be something that's really, really cool," Callihan continues. "He's amazing, he can make anything work. So I'm super interested to see what he does with this new character."
