Tony Khan Reveals How He Has Changed His AEW Booking Process Since Full Gear
Tony Khan changes up how he books AEW
After a turbulent 2022, All Elite Wrestling's TV shows have received plenty of praise since the Full Gear pay-per-view in November and that could be down to a small change Tony Khan implemented following the show.
Speaking on WTF with Marc Maron, Khan revealed that he changed the layout of his booking sheet following Full Gear and that has allowed him to be more organised.
"I had a process, I already had a schedule of what I had planned week to week in different stories with different matches and segments. At some point, I just inverted it. I realised I should tip this over. Instead of looking at the dates and building it out, I kind of flipped what the column was and what the rows were, and put the columns where the rows were, and now I organise everything like this since Full Gear and now I feel like I'm more organised, even though it's all the same information, it's just looking at it differently. It really helps," Khan said.
Khan continued: "I was already doing that, and we kind of had that, but I had it the other way where it was looking at the shows and I had where the columns were, and out here were the different wrestlers and stories. For some reason, and I don't know why, it shouldn't make that big of a difference flipping it. The flow, working down the page, it looks a lot better and works a lot better. It's basically the same thing I was doing, I just flipped the page around, and it's helped me be even more organised."
Tony Khan has been the booker of AEW since the beginning, having founded the promotion with Cody Rhodes, Brandi Rhodes, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks.
