Scott D'Amore & Don Callis named executive VPs of Impact Wrestling

Impact Wrestling announced two additions to their executive team this morning.

Scott D'Amore, who had already been working with Impact, and Don Callis were named executive vice presidents of the company. They join Ed Nordholm on a three-member executive committee that will handle the responsibility of "developing the creative direction for the company and managing the execution of the company’s business plan."

Impact's press release notes that Callis will continue in his role as color commentator for New Japan Pro Wrestling. Callis has filled that spot on the English-language broadcast team next to Kevin Kelly since January following the departure of Steve Corino.

Callis clarified reports that he'd be leaving New Japan for Impact in November by saying that he'll be with NJPW for as long as they want him. Dave Meltzer reported then that it wasn't out of the question that Callis would end up with Impact in a behind-the-scenes role at some point while still maintaining his job with NJPW.

“I am excited that Don and Scott have made this commitment to the company,” Nordholm said. “The 50 years of experience and success in the wrestling industry brought by Don and Scott, combined with the global media, marketing, sales and financial expertise of Anthem, provide the management depth and expertise that will propel Impact Wrestling to greater success as we continue to expand our footprint, embrace digital opportunities and grow the brand."

Jeff Jarrett had led the creative side of Impact until his leave of absence, with the promotion later announcing the end of their business relationship with him.
