Butter one side of each slice of pumpernickel bread. Stack slices of corned beef on non-buttered side. Add cheese, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, and a small amount of Sriracha sauce.
Place bread butter-side down on hot skillet on medium heat. Stack second piece of buttered pumpernickel butter-side up on top of sandwich.
After 3-4 minutes, flip sandwich to toast the other buttered side of the bread.
