– Impact Wrestling has issued a press release teasing a “major announcement” for this week’s media call. The media advisory adds that El Hijo del Fantasma will be unable to participate due to a scheduling conflict, and that Sami Callihan will be there instead.

The full announcement is below:

Due a scheduling conflict, El Hijo del Fantasma will not participate in the IMPACT Wrestling Media Teleconference this week and, instead, it will be a loaded lineup with Hot News and verbal barbs.

Sami Callihan will be the Special Guest, and Josh Mathews will be back on the call for the first 10 minutes with Twitch news and a “major IMPACT announcement.” Plus, Konnan still will be calling in. So you can bet things will be tense between arch-rivals Konnan and Callihan.
