Report: More Details On The Last Set Of AEW: Dynamite Tapings

A lot was put together at short notice...

In late March and early April, AEW taped a month's worth of Dynamite content at QT Marshall's gym in Norcross, Georgia. The tapings were based around the TNT Championship Tournament and the young promotion only had approximately 30 percent of their roster available for the shows. 

Mike Johnson reported more details on the tapings last night. He revealed Tony Khan wrote the last four weeks of TV in a matter of minutes by himself because he realised they would only be able to use a very small crew. It was noted as a "trial by fire" moment for Khan as he had to quickly produce a script despite 70 percent of his roster being unavailable. Cody Rhodes was also "very instrumental" in helping put the shows together as Khan's right-hand man.  

Chris Jericho, Orange Cassidy and Best Friends were also marked out for praise internally. Le Champion was only given 24 hours notice that he would be needed for commentary, while Cassidy, Chuck Taylor, and Trent all wrestled four times within 24 hours for the tapings. 

Johnson was also told the shows were "a big bonding experience" for everyone involved.
