'It Snapped In Half' - Sami Callihan Provides Update On His Ankle Injury
Callihan sustained the injury last month
Sami Callihan has provided an update on his recovery from ankle surgery, revealing he is a few more weeks away from starting rehabilitation.
Callihan sustained a nasty injury during the IMPACT Wrestling tapings in September, snapping his ankle and also suffering breaks in both his fibia and tibia bones in his left leg after attempting a tope suicida.
The 34-year-old underwent surgery in Nashville, Tennessee, following the incident and has now spoken about how his recovery is going.
Speaking on the Battleground podcast, Callihan said: "It was broken. I straight Sid Viscious'd myself, it snapped in half. It was gross.
"[Recovery is] going great. I'm like four weeks into recovery right now, finally got the stitches out from surgery and able to do a little bit of range of motion. Not going to be able to put any pressure on it for another four or five weeks and then I'll start rehab.
"You can't get rid of me that easy. Trust me, when I come back, there will be hell to pay and you'll see an entirely new Death Machine."
While no date has been confirmed, it is likely Callihan will be out of action until mid-2022.
