• WWF Legend Reveals Why He Contacted Impact Wrestling Recently
During a recent edition of “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho revealed that he recently contacted Impact Wrestling to recommend them to hire NJPW Commentator Don Callis.
Callis is now working in Impact Wrestling as Executive Vice President. Below is what Jericho said:
“My thought process was, and this is not a slight on anyone that has ran that company or been part of that company, working with that company, that has been around for so long, through so many incarnations and through all its ups and downs, and now I found with the last incarnation with TNA/Global Force is that it was a dead company. There was nothing exciting about it or sparking it, so to me, the only way to get it rolling would be to completely change directions and go with somebody new and different. When Billy Corgan was up for it I would have much rather him run it over Dixie Carter because it was somebody new, and I just really felt that it was my place to call the guys and say, listen, if you guys really want to lose money go for it, or use it as a tax write off then you have the right place.
But if you really want to do something and role with it and be at a place where people are excited about then you have to go in this direction, and these guys [Callis and D’Amore] are the guys to do it with. So that was basically the jist of the conversation and it worked because here you guys are, but this is really the only way the company to grow is by doing something completely different and new.”
• Another Former WWE Champion Missing WrestleMania 34 Due To Injury?
WWE posted the following update on former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose’s injury:
“An MRI has shown suspicion for a high-grade triceps tendon injury, possibly a tear, so he is undergoing surgical exploration and most likely surgical repair of the torn triceps tendon. That surgery will be happening later this evening, and we should have some further updates either later tonight or tomorrow morning as to what the findings were, what the structures that were damaged were, and also a timeline for recovery.”
A high-grade triceps tear might put Ambrose out of action for about 6 months, which would mean he’ll miss WrestleMania 34. Ambrose would join former WWE Champion Jeff Hardy, Raw Superstar Big Cass and Cruiserweight wrestler Noam Dar as the wrestlers who’ll most probably miss WrestleMania 34 due to injury.
Speaking of Ambrose, he worked the WrestleMania 33 Kickoff Show earlier this year and successfully defended his Intercontinental Championship against Baron Corbin.
