“I think this year has been a big year for IMPACT as far as getting that nasty taste out of the fan’s mouth from the Dixie-era goes,” he continued.

Callihan also stated that Impact is the Attitude-era promotion many fans have been asking for.

“People were screaming for an Attitude Era-like company to come back and I feel like IMPACT Wrestling is the closest thing to it,” Callihan said. “We’re the only company right now that isn’t afraid to offend people, to try new things. We’re not afraid to push the envelope and give you an edgy product and we’re not going to apologize for every single thing like a lot of the other companies.”
