Online reports credited to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter say that many in the industry believe Jericho is destined to go to Impact Wrestling and it is only a matter of time for that to happen. The belief comes from the fact that Jericho is friends with Leonard Asper (CEO of Anthem Sports & Entertainment Corp.), Don Callis (co-executive vice president of IMPACT Wrestling), and Scott D’Amore (co-executive vice president of IMPACT Wrestling). Jericho is said to be the one behind Asper hiring Callis and D’Amore to run IMPACT for Anthem.
