It's not really a comparable situation what so ever.
that's why aew does something wonderful!! long term booking with multiple emergency plans in case something in the long term booking changes. the Jericho vs cody rivalry for the title was teased in an episode of road to double or nothing that took place before DON.
the model aew is using now, is exactly! the model wwf has used for a very long time. long term booking + bullet points to the wrestlers who fills the blanks to reach the check point of the story with their own creativity and promos. with a big boss overseeing it ( vince ). they have a writing committee just like the old wwf.
wrestling is very very simple people


ps : I would have blamed Meltzer for not being able to explain something ( that cody already explained very well before) and once again fucking up. but for listening , I can only feel sad for the guy, that line he threw was in a certain context and it was a fast answer to Bryan Alvarez about shows not being overly scripted, he wasn't breaking down there booking process.
it's like the man can't even say anything without it becoming some breaking news....

It's only wrong when AEW does something outside the box.

What happens when two people propose an idea for a Title feud and you have to say no to one of them?
Yeah, it's called life. Everyone sits down and hashes it out.

Nobody knows their own craft as well as a great wrestler. They should have a place at the table. And the ones coming up need an opportunity to try to shine, or they'll never learn it.

This is how wrestling historically worked. And it's why I haven't watched WWE in 15 years. Taking the personal away from the wrestlers by controlling them so tightly kills the energy of the show. Nobody is 'real' anymore.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

Wrestlers known to cut their own promos have been known to bury wrestlers like The Rock, SCSA, and John Cena...

But I guess you can just have someone review their promo beforehand.

Meltzer isn't credible so whatever. However this could cause a problem if true.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

They will have a narrative plan, regardless if it's put together by a group of wrestlers. They can't go into a show on TNT without a plan to sell the network. The show has to have clear stars, and in order to maintain that, you have to plan/be aware of who the stars are each week. They need to find a balance. The WWE is off balance. The WWE has no plan from week to week, but they write a massive, overscripted script every episode.

Why do people still kiss meltzer ass? I mades articles out of things people know that wrestlers already stated or he creates shit thats false and is based off basic assumption

A plan has nothing to do with writing a script for everyone to talk. You think a writer can speak for Jericho? Thata not how the business works.

Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

I like the idea of wrestlers have a good amount of freedom to create storys, but there has to be some level of direction. Without a guiding hand stuff could easily become a clusterfuck. Hopefully, this is not going to be the case.
