UPDATE: Former Impact Wrestling executive and current manager of AEW/Impact/AAA World Champion Kenny Omega, the one and only Don Callis, will be making his exit from Impact Wrestling shortly. We have an update regarding this ongoing situation (see original report below).
According to Pwinsider, Callis officially exited his position and duties with Impact over a month ago. Callis has slowly been ramping down his responsibilities at Impact Wrestling dating back to last year, and officially left his creative position last month.
The core team at Impact Wrestling now consists of Scott D’Amore, Tommy Dreamer, Jimmy Jacobs and RD Evans. Currently, there are no plans to replace Callis on the the creative team. Callis and Impact Wrestling remain on good terms and there was no drama or issues regarding his exit and official jump to AEW.
Callis will continue to appear as Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers’ manager on Impact, and there is an expectation that Callis will eventually end up with AEW full-time. However, there is no official timetable set for that move to happen.
ORIGINAL: As we’ve been reporting here on eWn, Don Callis has reportedly been removed from his role as Impact Wrestling EVP. There are reports that his duties within Impact Wrestling are being significantly reduced.
According to a report from Fightful, it is confirmed that Callis is no longer an executive with Impact Wrestling and Anthem Sports & Entertainment. With that being said, he is still expected to appear on-camera when Kenny Omega appears.
As noted yesterday, Omega and Callis filmed all of their content on the first day of the recent set of Impact Wrestling TV tapings. The two men weren’t backstage at the three other days of tapings. The move doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as many talent were under the impression that Scott D’Amore has been running things all along.
