Tony Schiavone In The Dark About AEW All In Footage

Tony Schiavone AEW

AEW has made the decision to show what really happened backstage at All In but announcer Tony Schiavone has no idea what’s going to be shown.

On the April 10th edition of Dynamite, The Young Bucks announced that they will air backstage footage from AEW All In and speak about it for the first time. Initially, many thought this would be part of some kind of skit playing into the Bucks’ current role as heel EVPs. However, it has since been confirmed that, in a surprise move, actual footage of the altercation between Jack Perry and CM Punk will be aired.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Tony Khan confirmed that he will deliver what he advertised and the footage is real:

AEW has a great track record on delivering what we advertise, and it is real footage. The Young Bucks will show backstage footage from All In, the most important event in AEW history–the world record-holder for the most tickets ever sold for any wrestling record, over 81,035 total–and it was an important night backstage, as well.

While Tony Khan might know what he has up his sleeve regarding the footage, one man who does not have a clue what is going to be shown is AEW announcer Tony Schiavone.

Tony Schiavone Has No Idea Where AEW Is Going With All In Footage

Speaking on his What Happened When podcast, Tony Schiavone had two announcements to make as he revealed he has no idea what footage is going to air on Dynamite and he also passed on his congratulations to Cody Rhodes:

Number one for all you dirt sheet guys, I have no idea what the footage that is going to air tonight on our programme, on Dynamite is. Okay, don’t know what it is. Go and ahead and type your sh*t in that nobody reads and hit send. And number two, congratulations to Cody, he deserved it and that’s all I’m gonna say.

Schiavone then discussed how, as an announcer, he doesn’t like to know what happens on the show before it happens but that isn’t something unique to AEW:

I don’t know what it is. I don’t know if it’s an angle, I don’t know if it’s real, I don’t know what it is. I said what I said on Collision, I said it and I have no idea where we’re going.

As announcers, I’m telling you this we know the matches, but we have no idea what direction we’re going in anything until we get to the show that night. We really don’t. And sometimes we don’t know until we’re told in our headset as things are progressing, it’s always been that way as far as being told things in our headset. It’s not necessarily just for AEW, things were like that in the Crocketts, things were like that in WCW – boy were they – things were like that in WWE.

Sometimes announcers are told things and sometimes they’re not and sometimes we like things not to be told to us. I love things not to be told to me.

As well as the footage, AEW Dynamite in Charleston, West Virginia will see Samoa Joe take on Dustin Rhodes in an AEW World Title Eliminator while Adam Copeland will put the TNT Title on the line against Penta El Zero Miedo.

Mariah May will clash with Anna Jay and Shane Taylor Promotions – complete with Anthony Ogogo – will face Chris Jericho, HOOK, and Katsuyori Shibata.
