Tony Khan is not exactly that.

yeah, it would be utter chaos otherwise. You would have to physically get everyone to agree on eachothers storylines for it to ever progress.

there has to be some kind of central creator producing story paths with maybe some space for wrestler input.
optikk sucks, V-Trigger and patpat like this.

Tony Khan has been following wrestling since the NWA days. Good thing that he only has the final say.

What does that even mean lmao. Hes a fan thats watched wrestling a long time....okay? That qualifies him to do what exactly?


Look, Im not saying it won't work, but to be like.."oh its cool Gedo and Jado do it too" doesnt make sense at all lol. They already have Arn, Tully, Dean Malenko, Billy Gunn, etc, just make them the booking committee. Im fine with that.

They need Jim Cornette. As a manager, as a booker, even on commentary, nobody can touch him.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

Of course they have people driven the company storylines but its un scripted just like its always been until wwe decided to do it. You cant fucking tell someone like chris jericho what to say. You cant tell the rock or stone cold what to say.

They have agents and creative people back stage helping wrestlers move things of course

GEDO was a midcarder and a fan of Memphis wrestling. They're pretty much even and again, Tony Khan isn't booking for what we know.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

i listened to the observer radio...and I got to say poor Dave, every single thing he says get turned into so breaking news story and taken out of context. Dave just explained that the storyline would be led by the wrestlers themselves ( just like in new Japan, it doesn't mean the wrestlers decides who wins or not or the longterm booking, it means they have their creativity to put some stuffs into how they go from point A to point B). and that was also his point about aew not having writers. they HAVE a writing committee , we know it's the EVPs + khan.....it just means that they have flexibility. thats what you understand hwhen you get all the context around it and what they are talking about ( wwe having 1000 writers and how the elite and y2J turned the belt situation into the hottest angle of the week maybe the month).

the context has been taken away, Dave didnt present it like some breaking news about aew having all wrestlers write their stories. heck, Jericho confirmed that they have match agents and malenko booked their match, of course it's not utter chaos....if it was chaos they wouldn't have reacted as fast as they did on every situation so far.

You are trying to explain that to people that don't watch/care about NJPW and only know Vince/WCW way of booking.
