He Sliced Up Sabu and Shut Down The ECW Arena. Sami Callihan's Work Has Just Begun!
Waiting on hold for our own Hustler De Tuti Hustlers Paul Heyman can be a bitch. The man juggles more cell phone calls in a day than we would dare attach a number to, since you'll accuse of embellishing that number because of the sheer volume of calls he alternates between.
Gabe Sapolsky is no stranger to this phenomenon. "I think I've spent half my entire career on the phone with Paul, and half of that has been on hold!" the booking prodigy joked this afternoon during a conversation with me which was necessitated because (you guessed it) he was on hold for Paul here at the Looking4Larry Agency offices.
But even while waiting for Paul to pick up the call, Gabe couldn't stop raving about his next breakout star, Sami Callihan. The man who gave CM PUNK and Samoa Joe their first true heavy pushes in the pro wrestling business is sold on Sami Callihan being the next Sapolsky-discovered talent to become a global star.
"He's putting all the pieces together so brilliantly, and he's really jumping on this opportunity," Sapolsky commented. "Sami Callihan will go down as the man who shut down the THE FINAL SHOW AT THE ECW ARENA and he has capitalized on that opportunity since the moment he stood in the ring and scolded the fans after beating up Sabu!"
I have to admit, Gabe's enthusiasm got me curious. I checked out Sami's brand new interview. And I have to admit, Sami Callihan is ready for superstardom. Of course, I'd love to hear or read Paul's opinion on Sami, but this video should speak for itself.
Oh, yeah. The reason Gabe was calling? DragonGate just announced a huge main event for WrestleMania weekend. Sami Callihan vs Sabu, No Rules Fight at the Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach, Florida, which will air live on iPPV on March 31st. Details available at DGUSA.TV and WWNLive.com
