Which Major Star Pushed Impact to Hire Don Callis?
In related news, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that current IWGP Intercontinental Champion and former WWE star Chris Jericho is the one who urged the Impact Wrestling hiring of Don Callis.
The Observer reports that Jericho had a conversation with Leonard Asper of the Asper family, which owns The Fight Network, Impact and other businesses in Winnipeg, and the conversation was related to Impact Wrestling having lost a lot of money throughout the years due to so many issues in the company.
Jericho reportedly informed Asper that Impact was being run by “snakes” who were just trying to rip the company off for their own profit. Jericho then recommended that Asper hire Don Callis to run Impact Wrestling, as Jericho has had a long history working with Callis.
