Slammiversary is coming hard this weekend on Saturday, July 17, and the main event between Kenny Omega and Sami Callihan just got more dangerous.
After last week’s Impact World Championship contract signing, Omega versus Callihan was scheduled as a regular match. Earlier this week, Callihan requested to up the ante to No DQ. The Death Machine viewed it as a preemptive strike to counter Omega’s nefarious reliance on the Good Brothers and the Elite to cheat.

That is a dangerous upgrade. When Callihan hears No DQ, he goes above and beyond the standard tables, ladders, and chairs. He’s called the Death Machine for a reason. Callihan has used all sorts of foreign objects in the past, such as thumbtacks, Lego pieces, barbed wire baseball bats, and other horribly demented utensils for torture. Omega should be very worried for his safety.

- Impact World Championship: Kenny Omega (c) vs. Sami Callihan

Does the No DQ stipulation for Omega versus Callihan increase your interest in Slammiversary? Do you believe Callihan will bring the gold back to Impact?
