Per Fightful Select, Don Callis is no longer serving as an executive within IMPACT Wrestling.

The same outlet reported last week that people within the promotion believed the former Jackyl's role had either changed or was about to. This has now been confirmed, with the new report noting that Callis is expected to remain in his onscreen role alongside Kenny Omega in IMPACT and AEW.

Callis and Omega were only present on the first day of IMPACT's most recent set of television tapings. All footage featuring them was captured there and then, with the manager/wrestler duo not returning for the remaining three days.


Fightful note that Scott D'Amore had effectively been running the show since he and Callis took up their executive positions, so this hasn't come as a surprise.

Callis and D'Amore were appointed co-Executive Vice Presidents of IMPACT Wrestling in December 2017. The duo has largely been credited with turning the ship around creatively, rebuilding the promotion's reputation after a murky few years as ownership transitioned to Anthem Sports & Entertainment and IMPACT struggled for a steady television deal.


Now, it looks like D'Amore is running the show alone - if he wasn't already.
