Re: Meltzer: AEW Is Not Hiring Any Writers

Tony Khan shouldn't have final say. He knows almost nothing about the wrestling business or storytelling.

This idea is gonna fail quickly and they will end up hiring a creative team. The issue with WWEis that they fill the CT with writers who know nothing about wrestling.

AEW has a chance to build one filled with insiders who know about storytelling and other such things....Gabe Sabolsky, for example, would be a great pick for head booker.

All-Time Favorite Wrestlers:
The "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels

Dave Marquez should be offer a job since he found the Young Bucks and gave them their first break. He has been running his own promotion for years and manage to get local tv deals in many states. He is smart.

They need to stay away from writers and get rid of a few bookers.

He knows more than this forum combined if we go by what Meltzer, Austin and Jericho have said about him.

Khan has so many projects running, I highly doubts he can think "deeply" into storylines. Seriously! I guess it will be more like asking about if a storyline may go over a border or some very extreme character may be introduced.

He doesn't have to. He could hire capable people to do so which it seems like he doesn't want to do if this is true, but who knows. I just hope the end result isn't a terrible product.

Im not saying it has to be Kahn whos doing the booking, Im saying he should know enough to have someone capable in charge of it, because a roster full of talent and egos booking themselves can only end in disaster. I would be very surprised if that is not the case.

Business has changed. Theres no hulk hogans or the Kevin Nashs doing business for themselves.

Wrestling is a collaborative team effort to create the best feuds and payoffs possible to extend a wrestlers career. This is how its always been and exactly why the attitude era was successful.

Sorry, but no, that’s not how it is nor always has been. In the territory days, it was the promoter deciding who’s getting pushed and who’s feuding with whom. Maybe the talent pitched ideas, but setting the overall direction was anything but a collaborative effort. Somebody was in charge. The AE was no different. The difference between then and now was the wrestlers were allowed more freedom to define their characters, which the modern WWE has almost completely gotten away from, instead mostly dictating every aspect of a wrestler’s performance. But most other promotions don’t operate that way — outside WWE, wrestlers are still allowed to define their characters. But neither do the wrestlers have total freedom in defining all their story lines and angles — that’s still the job of bookers in the larger organizations, and promoters in the smaller ones.
