People on this forum will say loads of comments like, "Why would wwe sign this vanilla midget?", "This guy is going to crumble and fail faster than Mordecai", and "This emo puke wouldn't even make it in japan or tna, let alone wwe, the land of the giants". Then eventually when he shows up on NXT and blows everyone away like Moxley did as Ambrose, all of a sudden, those same posters will either disappear or magically become his largest fans. The circle of WF life is a funny thing to watch unfold.

Almost every month there was a new article on the guy and when he finally got signed by WWE, he fell flat. I didn't mind him but he certainly didn't live up to the hype.
Well WWE didn't really stick with him. As a heel with Regal he failed miserably for sure, because he was nowhere near big enough to be given a Lesnar push, but was definitely just as athletic and strong with endless potential. But as a face, he was getting over HUGE with his pirate gimmick, and if they altered it ever so slightly so he was more of a "Most interesting man" type of guy (like enjoying and collecting pirating history), he could have become a main event presence in the future. I loved his Plank finisher as well!

I agree completely with this! He is such a student of the game that I have zero doubts that if he gets signed he will bust his ass to prove he can be a maineventer, maybe even harder than Ambrose because he's significantly smaller in stature.

People that say Callihan can't make it because of his size are wrong. The guy used to be 320 pounds and busted his ass to lose over 100 lbs and is now down to about 190 lbs. The guy put on a great Evolve match ( I would say my favorite Evolve match) against Finlay and some great match with Sabu and AR Fox. The most over guy in the WWE is Daniel Bryan ( 5ft 11 200 lb)

Bryan's not even 5'11, he's more around 5'8. When I met him I was slightly taller then him but he definitely seems a lot bigger with his huge frame. Sami, from what I've heard is a legit 5'10 which is Jericho and Angle's size so he should be fine I hope. I really think he should hit the weights and beef up, and use a wrestling style similar to Taz. I think it would work amazingly for him.

I really don't like Callihan, from what I've seen he just looks like a geeky kid who is trying way too hard, I watched a couple of promos and didn't believe a word he was saying. Hopefully they can do something good with him if/when he signs, but I'm really not convinced right now.

Comparing him to Ambrose is an insult even though they teamed together.

Well I would rather he try too hard then not at all like many people in the wwe (Del Rio, etc.). Also I would say that Ambrose definitely beats him on the mic but Sami is a better in ring worker and has the very same drive that Dean has to be the best. Watch Sami's promo on Sabu in the graveyard.

Second, I've seen Callihan wrestle for a number of years, before the hyperbole started. he's your typical MOZES Indy guy. I know some of you guys like that, but I don't. He can't build a match on his own and when he's been in there with a lesser experience name, it's been woeful. His best matches have come against some of the best in the world, who have clearly led the match.

He's a decent Indy guy, but there are many more better out there. He should stick to that shithole CZW.

So wrong. He was a GREAT catalyst behind why his matches vs Finlay were tremendous. Hardly a carry job. Sami used the advantage of Finlay's grand experience & talent and morphed it into the work collectively to make something special.

This is what NXT is for dude. I don't completely disagree with your post because, early on, he was relying too heavily on moves but this is the independants where he has to wrestle in front of impatient hardcore fans who get tired easily. Look at Rollins for instance; when he was Tyler Black he was basically Morrison with flippy moves and little storytelling without a ring general to hold his hand. But Rollins went into NXT and he became an excellent storyteller and is now one of the best in ring talents in the company.

THIS. That match was absolutely incredible as were his matches with Sabu, Generico, Hardy, etc.
