Backstage News On Don Callis Appearing At AEW Full Gear
As seen during AEW’s Full Gear pay-per-view event, Impact Wrestling’s Don Callis appeared on the commentary booth for the Kenny Omega vs. Hangman Page match. Callis has known Omega since he was a kid and was personally invited to watch his match.
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW President Tony Khan and Impact Wrestling executives Ed Nordholm and Scott D’Amore were all fine with the idea. Khan reportedly told Callis that if it wasn’t for the match between Omega and Jericho in NJPW, there likely wouldn’t be an AEW. Callis was the one who convinced Jericho to work the match.
