Callihan vs. Cage World title rematch set for Impact Plus special


Impact Wrestling has announced when Sami Callihan will be making his first World Championship defense.

Brian Cage will get his rematch for Callihan's World title at Impact's Turning Point special on Saturday, November 9. The special will air live on Impact Plus.

Callihan won the Impact World Championship from Cage in a steel cage match at last Friday's Impact television tapings in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. The match aired as the main event of Impact's official weekly debut on AXS TV last night.

After the steel cage match, Tessa Blanchard came to the ring and confronted Callihan.

Prior to the title change, Cage retained the Impact World Championship against Callihan in a no disqualification match at Bound for Glory.  The steel cage rematch was set up by an angle where Callihan threatened Cage's family until Cage agreed to give him another title shot.

Turning Point is taking place at the Holy Family Academy in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. Ace Austin vs. Jake Crist for the X-Division title and RVD vs. Rhino are also set for the show.
