Rumor on how Don Callis Ended Up with Impact Wrestling

Posted By James Walsh on 08/02/18

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the reason that Don Callis was brought in to run the company is because Leonard Asper of the Asper family, which owns The Fight Network, Impact and tons of things in Winnipeg, had a conversation with Chris Jericho about how the company has lost so much money and had so many problems. Jericho told him that Impact had been run by snakes and that those type of people are only going to rip him off, and suggested his friend Don Callis for the job.
