Elgin in real fight and his statement on leaving Impact Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/26/2020 at 05:10 PM
Fightful.com is reporting that there was a real backstage fight between former Impact Wrestling star Michael Elgin and Sami Callihan that had to be broken up by official Scott D’Amore:
"Fightful was told that the two recently were setting up a match that also involved Ken Shamrock, and disagreed on how the match should start."
The fight was said to be unrelated to Impact releasing Elgin. Elgin made a statement regarding his departure from the company on Instagram:
"I appreciate the time and opportunities given to me with Impact. That locker room, the film crew and all the company officials were a pleasure to be associated with. I hope that in time things get sorted.
For now, I have to look at the bright side, I have more time to spend with my son and reclaim time that has been missed."
