AEW likes to do run-ins and stable brawls. This is something that fans have noticed in a big way. There are other things that the company seems to do often, and Chris Jericho recently revealed that the company is doing what they can to stop that repetitive things from going down.
Le Champion recently spoke to Busted Open Radio where he said that AEW is doing more production meetings, with coaches and agents, to make sure that they don’t end up repeating themselves in the course of Dynamite’s two-hour broadcast.
“We have a production meeting now before the show that wasn’t happening a lot before, and we have an agents meeting and coaches meeting before the show that wasn’t happening a lot before. The reason for that is so we just don’t have the same thing happening twice on the show.. We do not want to have a beatdown with a coffee cup in segment two and then another beatdown with a coffee cup in segment three because nobody coordinated that with anyone else on the show.”
“You will see a lot more of that because we realized that we are doing some similar things in the same show, so then how can we eliminate that? If Chris Jericho is worried about his stuff and Kenny Omega and Don Callis are worried about their stuff and Cody Rhodes is worried about his stuff, we know what we are doing but we don’t express that to each other and sometimes things are similar. We have really been working on that and it’s been paying off to where we’re not stepping on each other’s toes, but still allowing everyone to be creative and have some awesome ideas.”
It always helps to know what the other segments on the show are going to be so you can book an eclectic broadcast. Variety will also help draw interest in a show because you never know what’s going to happen next.
Chris Jericho made a point to say that they are making an attempt to avoid similar angles, and he thinks it is paying off.
