Eddie Edwards vs. Sami Callihan I Quit match set for New Orleans

The first match between Eddie Edwards and Sami Callihan since Callihan accidentally injured Edwards in a baseball bat spot gone wrong will be taking place next month.

Impact Wrestling announced today that Edwards will face Callihan in an I Quit match at their Impact vs. Lucha Underground show in New Orleans on April 6th.

Edwards will be returning to the ring at an indie show this week for the first time since he was injured after his match with Callihan at Impact's television tapings in January. Callihan meant to hit a steel chair with a baseball bat, but the spot went wrong and he accidentally hit Edwards in the face with the bat. Edwards suffered a broken nose and broken bones in his face due to the incident.

Things have since been turned into a storyline, with Callihan acting unrepentant about what happened. He also got into a Twitter feud with Jim Cornette over the spot earlier this month.

Impact vs. Lucha Underground is part of WrestleCon's weekend of events in New Orleans and will stream live on Impact's Twitch channel at 10 p.m. Eastern time. Andrew Everett, Dezmond Xavier & DJZ vs. King Cuerno, Drago & Aerostar is the only other match that's been announced as of now.

UPDATE: Though he wasn't billed under the name at first, Callihan will be wrestling as his "Jeremiah Crane" character from Lucha Underground at the show.
