“The New Horror” Sami Callihan has been a key performer in CZW ever since he made his debut there in 2008. But although his time in the popular ultraviolent company is perhaps what has got him so well noticed, Callihan has also performed around the independent circuit, including stints in Ring of Honor and Evolve.
It’s no secret why Callihan is so well used amongst the circuit, because he looks different to most wrestlers. “The New Horror” adopts a vicious gimmick which means he pulls no prisoners, and has featured in some great Ultraviolent contests against the likes of John Dahmer and Egotistico Fantastico. But he’s not just about being hardcore, as he has shown during contests for ROH and Evolve, one of which where he defeated independent wrestling specialist Arik Cannon.
With a dangerous move as his finisher (the skull crushing Headlock Driver) and a number of titles obtained in his four year career so far, it is no surprise that Sami Callihan is climbing his way up the ladder. With hints that he could become a big feature in Ring of Honor sometime soon, it seems that the only way is up for “The New Horror” and his manic ways.
