Only difference between we the people in the thread and Tony Khan is we can 't afford to have our own company. He isnt even with Gedo not in a milion years. Or any booker that spent their life with this.

this, what they are doing is what njpw has always been doing. you don't have 100 goons in njpw writing some dumb stories.
you give the boys the long term booking and some key points they have to reach and let they creativity do the rest.

Gedo is hella overrated as booker. The NJPW tag divisions stink. Anyway, back on topic.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

While you don't need the big team of writers from out of wrestling like WWE does hopefully they have something in place for a booking committee, I'm sure they do but whenever I hear about wrestlers having control I get bad flashbacks to WCW. I realize it's something that works for the most part in NJPW and the AEW guys don't give the vibe of being too much into themselves like guys like Nash or Hogan I still hope there's a solid booking committee there.

They do. Cody books the singles division. YB book the Tags and Kenny and Brandi book the womens division.

Thanks for the further insight, I also meant someone outside of the active roster helping out as well, I feel like they'll probably be in good hands with the veterans they have around though.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

Some of the early blow back comments in here shows me that the WWE model really does have some folks indoctrinated.

Okay that makes more sense. The way it reads, it came off like everybody would be making their own stories.

NJPW isn't gearing up for a weekly show on a major American Network. I'd love to see how long that format would last before cancelation.
