Tony Khan Explains Why He Changed His AEW Booking Process
AEW President Tony Khan has explained why he needed to change his own process to help the booking of the company’s shows.
Tony Khan might be one of the busiest men in sports and entertainment with his time split between the Jacksonville Jaguars, Fulham FC, AEW, and Ring of Honor. Despite that Khan is notoriously hands-on when it comes to what appears on his wrestling shows and he has his fingerprints all over AEW Dynamite and Rampage.
Speaking on WTF With Marc Maron, Tony Khan showed the host his booking sheet and explained why he felt he needed to change his process:
“I had a process, I already had a schedule of what I had planned week to week in different stories with different matches and segments. At some point, I just inverted it. I realized I should tip this over.”
“Instead of looking at the dates and building it out, I kind of flipped what the column was and what the rows were, and put the columns where the rows were, and now I organize everything like this since Full Gear and now I feel like I’m more organized, even though it’s all the same information, it’s just looking at it differently. It really helps.”
Tony Khan’s process has led to the 1st of February edition of Dynamite featuring Jon Moxley and Hangman Adam Page resuming hostilities, Bryan Danielson being put to the test by MJF again as he faces Timothy Thatcher, and Samoa Joe challenging Darby Allin for the TNT Championship in a No Holds Barred match.
