Don Callis will be calling future shows for New Japan Pro Wrestling.
The promotion’s global Twitter account tonight tweeted that Callis would be back for multiple events, including January’s Wrestle Kingdom 13 event. Callis responded to the news on Twitter, saying “Hello my little darlings… I’ve missed you.”
According to the October 22 issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Don Callis wasn’t called to do King of Pro Wrestling. He didn’t appear for the last three days of the G1 Climax tournament either due to scheduling conflicts with Impact Wrestling, where he is in charge as an executive vice president. Individuals that have replaced Callis since his absence include Rocky Romero, Marc Warzecha, Chuck Taylor and Beretta.
Lanny Poffo mentioned in his podcast recently that he would be auditioning for a color commentator role for New Japan during this weekend’s Road to Power Struggle events. With Don Callis returning to the fold, his status isn’t currently known.
