Just a bit outside. Eddie Edwards you are tough as nails. In the main event of last night’s (Mar. 1) Impact Wrestling Edwards took on Sami Callihan in a very physical match.
Edwards won the match but after the the final bell, Callihan assaulted him. Armed with a baseball bat Callihan swung down at Edwards while Die Hard’s head was pinned to the mat.
The result of spot can be seen below in GIF form below and it looks absolutely brutal.

Now check out the sequence with the sound on and you can hear the bat connect cleanly (too cleanly) with the orbital bone of Edwards.
The sound of bat hitting eye bone is something we will not be able to forget anytime soon.
To his credit Edwards was in good spirits on the day the match was taped for television.
Thanks to everyone checkin in. Im good, couple broken bones couple cuts and a sweet black eye. Somedays youre the bat, somedays youre my eye— Eddie Edwards (@TheEddieEdwards) January 14, 2018
And because this is pro wrestling, Callihan was able to turn this close encounter into an angle on social media, complete with a hospital picture from Edwards.

Was Sami Callihan trying to hit the chair instead of Edwards? Is that just a horrible angle to swing a protected baseball bat shot at your opponent? What went wrong here?
