During a media call today, IMPACT Wrestling Executive Vice President Don Callis was asked by WrestleZone’s Bill Pritchard if there is any interest in having Chris Jericho on IMPACT and working with him again. As one would expect, Callis had nothing but nice things to say about his friend.
“I’ve always been a guy that has a very small group of people that I consider my friends,” Callis admitted. “Chris Jericho and I have been friends for 30 years. He’s my oldest and closest friend in this business. Chris and I, we talk business because Chris is brilliant. I think Chris Jericho might go down as the greatest all-around performer and entertainer in the history of the business and I think Kenny Omega will go down as the greatest wrestler in the history of the business. I will go down as the greatest revolutionary, high-level thinker in the business, and that’s three guys from Winnipeg. So, that’s pretty cool.
“Just as I did in 2017-18 with New Japan Pro-Wrestling, when I put together the match that changed the entire wrestling business. My idea, my execution, Jericho vs. Omega at the Dome. The match that Tony Khan said made him think that something could happen with pro wrestling. We gave birth to AEW with that match. … I included my friend Chris Jericho in that idea not just because Jericho made it work, [not just that he’s] the massive star, but that he’s my friend.
“Now as I find myself as the most talked about non-wrestling person in the business and Kenny Omega is the most talked about wrestler. We would both be open to helping Chris out by having him in a situation where he could benefit from what me and Kenny are doing right now because that’s what Don Callis does for his friends and family.”
