Yesterday I wrote about how mediocrity was a disease within the WWE. People are happy to just receive a paycheck. For one wrestler however mediocrity and a paycheck weren’t enough. Sami Callihan, formally known as Soloman Crowe, was recently interviewed on Interactive Wrestling Radio. In that interview Callihan said the following;
“I don’t think I was a trendsetter. I just was… mediocrity is dead with me. I’m not complacent just sitting around collecting a paycheck. It really didn’t matter about being a trendsetter. I wasn’t going to jsut sit around collecting a paycheck, even though it was a very good paycheck to do nothing. I was ready to go out and show them why hired a 5’7 kid in the first place.”
While I’ve never been the biggest fan of Callihan’s work I am a fan of his attitude. Pro wrestling could use more of it!
