Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

I imagine there's a bit more to it than "wrestlers coming up with stories and Khan just saying yes or no".

They probably all sit down and book the shows/feuds together in their conference meetings.

Promo's will be unscripted, but they'll have a large storyline planned out for each feud for which show etc.

Gedo comes up with the stories and gives bullet points. Same thing AEW is going to do. EVPS book/give bullet points and the wrestlers work their magic.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

Thank god.

What a crazy concept.
Have a wrestling company ran and booked by people in wrestling???????
How dare they not use bottom of the barrel Hollywood writers who have literally never watched wrestling!?

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

I think its been made very clear by now that writers don't know how wrestling works, we're better off without them

if that were true then surely WCW would have survived

but since you appear to be a Vince Russo fan in 2019 im better off ignoring you

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

Writers give management a form of control, given free reign you risk wrestlers going rogue.

Did you hear of the thief with a loose thread?
He got caught.

2. if they do go rouge you do what TNA never did and make an example out of them

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

I don't believe it. They probably just call it something different. No way you're having a guy in Tony Khan who never wrote television in his life all of a sudden the only shot caller to a bunch of wrestlers pitching their own shit to him.

Booking committee. Every wrestling promotion before Vince has done it and it worked.

Cody should be aware of what Double J did when he had this kind of “power”
