Real-life best friends top AEW Star Kenny Omega and professional wrestling legend Don Callis recently spoke with Fight Game Media, where Don Callis said that he believes Omega would have made his way to IMPACT Wrestling if it weren’t for AEW and if AEW had not come into play. Callis also said that it is not something that was guaranteed, but it is something that IMPACT Wrestling President Scott D’Amore and himself would have made happen.
This is what Don Callis said:
“I’ll say this: If AEW had not come into play…Kenny Omega would have come into Impact Wrestling.” “Not that he ever agreed to it, but it’s something that Scott D’Amore and I would have made happen.”
Omega then revealed that Callis was the person behind his success in NJPW and Callis is the one who elevated his performance and made his matches as special as it became.
This is what Kenny Omega said:
“Don…elevated all of my major performances in New Japan with moments that were just as special as the moves being performed in the ring.” “It’s all part of the production and part of what makes a good match a great match, or a great match, a classic.”
Don Callis recently made an appearance at the AEW Full Gear PPV when he guest commentated the AEW World Championship Eliminator Finals Match between Kenny Omega and Hangman Page.
