Don Callis’ name disappeared from the Impact Wrestling executives page for a reason. He has all but left the company except as a character on television. His involvement with Kenny Omega saw the Invisible Hand move to AEW.
Following Double or Nothing, Tony Khan took part in a media scrum where he was asked about Don Callis’ role in AEW. He assured fans that Callis will remain a “huge part” of their television as long as Kenny Omega is AEW World Champion.
Khan also confirmed that Don Callis is working backstage for the company. He helps Kenny Omega out with his segments and serves a consultant role as well.
“Don is a big part of our television,” Khan said (per Fightful). “Don’s here every week, so Don is with us at AEW. He’s a part of the team as Kenny’s mouthpiece, Kenny’s advisor, and Kenny is on the show every week so Don is on the show every week, and every pay-per-view. As long as Kenny is the champion, Don is a huge part of AEW. Don is an important member of the team here every week.”
“I mean, he’s been [helping behind-the-scenes]. He helps with Kenny’s segments, and he’s involved, and he’s a consultant backstage. I mean, that’s pretty much the same. He’s doing that here and there was a point where he’s been here every week. I think it makes sense. We’re doing TV now, we’re going back live in a few weeks, so he’s going to be here. We got Kenny against Jungle Boy in two weeks… Kenny is defending all the titles, he’s got the IMPACT Title, the AAA Title, and we’ll see but I think he’s going to be with Kenny wherever Kenny is. I think Kenny is signed here for years, so I think Don will be here for years, like it or not.”
We will have to see what is in Don Callis’ future, even after Kenny Omega eventually loses the AEW World Title. He has a pretty good gig right now as Omega’s right-hand man. That move to AEW could come with more opportunities in the future.
