Jim Ross: Don Callis Was His Own Worst Enemy In WWE

Don Callis might have rubbed some people the wrong way in WWE, according to JR

While he is known today for his exploits with All Elite Wrestling, IMPACT, and New Japan, Don Callis had a short run in WWE in the 1990s as The Jackyl, where he managed The Truth Commission and The Oddities. Callis would be released by WWE in 1998.

Speaking about Callis' run in WWE, Jim Ross noted that The Invisible Hand could be "his own worst enemy at times." 

"I think he was his own worst enemy at times. He could be caustic. He could be attitudinal, shall we say. Don is a very, very intelligent person and he doesn't have a lot of patience for ignorance, so sometimes he's impatient when others don't accept and embrace his ideas, but he's a talented guy. He really is a talented guy," Jim Ross said on Grilling JR.

"I believe he's a big asset in AEW affiliating with The Elite, Kenny, The Bucks, and so forth. I think he's going to be very crucial going forward in their continued evolution. Here's the deal. In a nutshell, he rubbed some people the wrong way, and if you talk to him, I'm sure he would say the same thing. I think Vince (he rubbed the wrong way). He might have rubbed some of the underlings the wrong way because he was generally smarter than them. I think it got back to Vince and Vince got tired of hearing about it, so see you later."
