Aftermath of Eddie Edwards versus Sami Callihan
Eddie Edwards spoke to TMZ Sports about the incident:
Edwards suffered a broken nose and orbital bone.
Jim Cornette was not impressed and expressed as much below:
OK, I just saw this for the first time– @TheEddieEdwards should have beat the shit out of this stupid fuck–he set it up shoddy, was careless with his shitty swing & they shouldn't have been doing it to begin with. Who the fuck "trained" @TheSamiCallihan ? I'm fucking hot. https://t.co/lpTIqxca29

Kassius Ohno was not impressed with Callihan’s response to Cornette:
Really? Really? There is ZERO correlation between how much money you make & what happened in that ring. You should be embarrassed. ASHAMED.
