Report: Andrade Has Same Creative Control As Anyone Else In AEW
El Idolo became All Elite last week
After signing with All Elite Wrestling, rumours surfaced claiming that Andrade El Idolo had a creative control clause written into his contract when signing, allowing him final say on anything related to his character.
Now it seems that those rumours are unfounded, as a report from PWInsider says that Andrade has the same amount of creative control as any other performer in the company. Although it is said that AEW performers are allowed a lot more creative freedom as opposed to the likes of WWE, the final say is always AEW President Tony Khan’s.
Whatever the outcome, we can assume that Andrade will have a lot of leeway with his character, and hopefully will be involved in some dynamic storylines going forward in AEW.
Creative control clauses in wrestling are not always a good thing anyway. Hollywood Hulk Hogan famously had creative control when in WCW, liked to flex his creative control on a regular basis, and we all know how that worked out.
