Don Callis commented on rumors/speculation that Chris Jericho could be coming to Impact Wrestling now that Callis has a position in the company creatively. Callis mentioned that if Jericho was coming to the company, that would be news to him and he pointed out that he doesn’t put a lot of stock into rumors.
“I’ve read a lot of rumors about different talents. There is the one you mentioned (Rey Mysterio). I’ve heard about Chris Jericho which, if he is, I wish he’d tell me since we’ve been good friends for so many years. I don’t put a lot of stock in rumors. People look at who is available out there and fans think about who they’d LIKE to see in there. I totally get it but I don’t put a lot of stock in rumors.”
While Jericho isn’t expected to work this year’s Royal Rumble or WrestleMania events, there is speculation that he will be working another New Japan Pro Wrestling event later this year.
