The massive difference between AEW and NJPW is that NJPW doesn't rely on a weekly television show like AEW is going to be.

It's not really a comparable situation what so ever.

Yeah, it did read that way. But I attribute that to the fact that Meltzer canít write worth a shit. Combine that with his penchant for inserting his opinions and suppositions into his facts, and, well, you get this.

From what Iíve seen and heard, Iíve always assumed that some one (or ones) will come up with the general direction ó whoís feuding with whom and why, and whoís eventually going over ó and leaving how to tell the story to the wrestlers. Thatís where the rubber meets the road and the real stars will stand apart from the rest. Weekly tv ought to be a whole lotta fun.

I find it difficult to believe that a guy who owns an NFL team doesn't understand the value of direction and leadership.

My Meltzer bullshit detector is going off.

Could be an absolute train wreck, but it's exciting nonetheless, it's definitely going to be a different style of show than we've seen before.
I hope you realize that before WWE got all heavily scripted this was how wrestling was done for decades, wrestlers coming up with their own shit.

Knock it off. This isn't 1999. The audience has changed and so have television viewership. What you call "crash tv" happens everywhere now. It isn't unique, especially in pro wrestling. And LOL @ asking Russo to come in. That would surely be the death knell for AEW as a viable alternative to WWE.

That said, while I don't think you need writers for wrestlers to cut promos, having bulletin points or a central point to your promos for your agents to get across the wrestler for his/her promo is still essential. Some of these guys and girls can't cut a promo and are going to look like a deer in headlights on TNT. You have the likes of Arn, Tully, Dustin, Jericho in your company. Use their expertise in how to cut an effective promo without it coming off as contrived or forced.
The Raw Smackdown and patpat like this.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

Wait the same people on here complain and moan about WWE writers, and wished the guys and ex wrestlers had a say in how feuds go and cut their own promo's. Now a company are doing it, and the same people are shitting all over it. This is the modern wrestling fan lol.

"the show is literally going to be the Wrestlers coming up with storylines and promos"

This is how it should be! Pretty much all the wrestlers prior to joining AEW (with the exception of the WWE ones) have been responsible fro their own creativity, direction & product. All they will be doing differently is collaborating more frequently with other people.

Its sad that people think wrestlers should be just cattle getting told what to do by an all seeing centralized and controlling demagogue.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

Wont work in the long run, if you're shooting down one wrestlers idea but going with anothers idea you're just creating resentment from the guy whose idea wasnt good enough.

What happens when two people propose an idea for a Title feud and you have to say no to one of them?

Ideally, in a perfect scenario you need someone completely unbiased overseeing it all who can best judge direction and ideas to go down.

Just steer clear of the WWE way where they only care about 5% of their roster.
