AEW opened their doors and they’ve been concentrated on snatching up any hot free agent Tony Khan can pull into a deal. They’ve also added some key names backstage along the way. Some might say that TK didn’t do a good enough job doing both at the same time.
Pat Buck was one of the main producers for WWE, as he produced several big matches in the company. He ended up parting ways with WWE after WrestleMania 38, where he produced Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns alongside Michael Hayes.
Pat Buck ultimately left WWE due to the unforgiving schedule all producers in the company have to deal with. In the end, he chose what was best for his family and many people respect his decision.
As previously reported, Pat Buck signed with AEW immediately after he left WWE. While speaking on his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, Jim Cornette talked about Pat Buck signing with AEW. He criticized Tony Khan for not laying out AEW’s infrastructure first.
“This is the kind of people that Tony Khan should have been going after to set his promotion up before he went after anyone but the key talent. The key talent like Chris Jericho for the name and you know The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega for their rabid following and whoever, he should have set up an infrastructure first.
Veteran producers, trainers, people who have many years of knowledge and proper experience of putting together a show of this magnitude on national cable television. In all honestly, that is who he should have really been going after first, at least Khan is finally getting them now.”
We will have to wait and see just how beneficial Pat Buck will be to AEW in the long run. Judging by his vast knowledge, AEW is likely to see a lot of benefits in the future.
