Impact’s Victory Road special event is set for chaos on Friday, September 23. The headliner is Barbed Wire Massacre between Sami Callihan, Moose and Steve Maclin. All that was left was a contract signing, and the Death Machine did it in style with blood.
The signing of the contract was the closing segment for Thursday evening Impact wrestling. The idea was the innocuous legal term to release Impact and the contestants from liability in the event of serious injury. That helped sell the idea of the Barbed Wire Massacre concept as dangerous and barbaric.
Moose and Maclin entered the ring on command. Callihan didn’t. Moose and Maclin were not deterred. They exchanged verbal barbs and signed the paperwork. At that point, Callihan arrived fashionably late.
Callihan claimed to be the master of puppets by pulling strings to get Moose and Maclin to each other’s throats. Now that Callihan has them where he wants them, he’ll cut them from ear to ear in Barbed Wire Massacre. The Death Machine broke out a barbed wire pen to sign the contract.
As is customary when signing contracts in professional wrestling, violence broke out. Yes!
As Callihan leaned forward to put ink on paper, Maclin took his pen to stab Callihan in the head to open a bloody wound. Moose and Maclin teamed up to defeat their opponent. Moose put Callihan in the tree of woe so that Maclin would hit a spear. When Maclin started running across the ring, Moose cut it off for a blind spear of his own. Callihan recovered in front of a pile driver to make Moose stand upright.
Callihan signed the contract with his blood.
