Impact Wrestling this week emanated from Sam’s Town live in Las Vegas. The episode featured several segments from the wedding of Brian Cage and Melissa Santos.
Here are 6 takeaways from Impact Wrestling 9/27:
6Sami Callihan Hits Melissa Santos With A Bottle At Wedding
Sami Callihan will challenge Brian Cage for the Impact World Championship at Bound for Glory and found it necessary to involve himself in Brian Cage and Melissa Santos’ wedding reception this week.
After comedic interruptions from Taya Valkyrie and Ethan Page, an intoxicated Eddie Edwards vomited on Cage’s brother who was acting as the minister. Edwards then took a swing at Ace Austin and accidentally hit the minister. Tommy Dreamer then called for a new minister to officiate the wedding which led to James Mitchell entering the room dramatically and marrying the couple. The reception then took place in the ring during the show’s final segment.
Sami Callihan then interrupted the proceedings as the couple was enjoying their first dance. He brought out an empty bottle he said had been intended as a wedding gift for the couple but he and OVE weren’t invited. Callihan called Santos a “b**ch” during his toast and when Cage confronted him Callihan swung the bottle at him but hit Melissa instead. The show went off the air with several people attending to Santos.
5Tenille Dashwood to Challenge Taya Valkyrie At Bound For Glory
