Don Callis’ status with New Japan Pro Wrestling is currently up in the air. Callis’ duties with IMPACT Wrestling prevented him from calling the last three days of NJPW’s G-1 card. Callis hasn’t been called for any future NJPW shows and was even left off the “King Of Pro Wrestling” show as well, which surprised many fans.
It’s believed in Japan that his duties with IMPACT could prevent him from coming back, so this could simply be a miscommunication between both sides. Callis could possibly work a few big shows each year. With that being said, IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho doesn’t seem to be happy with Callis’ lack of involvement with NJPW at the moment.
Callis notably is credited with starting the NJPW feud between Jericho and Kenny Omega. Jericho had the following to say on the matter recently on Twitter:
