Report: Original Plans For Don Callis' IMPACT Wrestling Executive Storyline Revealed

A storyline through to Slammiversary was planned

It emerged recently that Don Callis is no longer an executive vice president with IMPACT Wrestling, having left the role last month. 

Questions about Callis' IMPACT future initially arose after his executive profile was removed from parent company Anthem's website and The Invisible Hand's departure from the role has since been confirmed. He will continue with IMPACT in an on-screen capacity as Kenny Omega's manager. 

It initially appeared Callis leaving his executive role would be part of a storyline in IMPACT as Scott D'Amore recently said the former commentator needed to "decide if he's an IMPACT EVP or part of Omega's family."

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter's Dave Meltzer, D'Amore's comments were indeed designed to kick off a storyline through to Slammiversary which would have culminated with Callis joining AEW, at which point he would also no longer be an on-screen authority figure. 

 The removal of Callis' profile from Anthem's website before the storyline could play out scuppered those plans, however.
