AEW Dynamite made its debut in October 2019 and since then has worked hard to provide an alternate product to what fans see in WWE. For the most part, they have succeeded, but there is still lot of room for improvement.
There is no doubt that AEW has a very deep and diverse roster of talented in-ring performers from all over the world, incorporating various styles of pro wrestling. The company has established stars such as Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley and many more.
While speaking on his “Strictly Business” podcast, Eric Bischoff admitted “it can’t hurt” to have some of the more experienced stars work with those wrestlers to get them over. He criticized how AEW booked their established talent as well.
Anytime you work with somebody who’s a lot more experienced than you are, and is willing, as I am sure Jericho is and Cesaro, because they’re two great people and they’re pros, and they would be willing to share I am sure,” he said. “Obviously that’s an advantage, but is that the best use of resources for God’s sake? Because what are you doing to Chis Jericho and Cesaro? What are you doing to their characters and their value? What happens to their equity?
Now you’re going to have him putting over other talent, or working with younger talent as a coach or a trainer? I don’t know,” Bischoff questioned. “Doesn’t seem like a great way of using your resources, but what do I know?”
We will have to wait and see how many talents Tony Khan will keep on signing to AEW in the coming months and whether he will book them better or not.
