IMPACT Wrestling Executive Don Callis recently took part in a media call, where he talked about Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho’s NJPW feud, as well as Calls Jericho, being the best performer ever, and Omega being the best wrestler ever.
Below are the highlights:
On setting up Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho’s classic NJPW feud:
“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.”
On Chris Jericho being the best performer ever and Kenny Omega being the best wrestler ever:
“I’ve always been a guy that has a very small group of people that I consider my friends. 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.”
