IMPACT Wrestling’s Don Callis was recently the guest on the Talk’n Shop podcast. During the interview Callis revealed that he had a job offer from WCW back in 2001.

“In 2001 when WCW was about to go out of business, I had a gig lined up with Bischoff.”

“Joey Styles and I were gonna go in and be the commentators [for WCW]. I was gonna make more money than I ever made, but that deal fell through. And all of a sudden, it was like, I went from being able to leverage three companies (WWF, WCW and ECW) to a monopoly. And I knew when a monopoly happens, guys on top like Jericho do well, but the guys underneath, don’t do well.”
