Tony Khan Wanted A ‘Giant Egg And A Turkey’ For AEW Thanksgiving Show
The Gobbledy Gooker is All Elite? Surely not…
It must be fun being the owner of a pro wrestling company, having the opportunities to book what you want whether it be genre defining matches and rivalries, or homages to the ridiculous bits of wrestling’s past.
In the case of Tony Khan, he is definitely interested in the latter, and as revealed in the latest AEW Unrestricted podcast, AEW’s Special Projects Manager Charlie Ramone outlined what TK had in store for a previous Thanksgiving edition of Dynamite.
“As far as acquisitions, there’s a lot that you haven’t seen that I’ve had to turn down,” Ramone revealed. “Probably one of the weirdest ones was the turkey for the Thanksgiving episode. Tony wanted a giant egg and a turkey. Because that was a little bit out of my scope and I had a lot of stuff to do, that got delegated to another group of people.
“And when that didn’t get accomplished, I remember Tony sitting there talking to me saying, ‘I was told that just couldn’t happen. How on earth could it happened in 1985, but it can’t happen in 2019?’ I said, ‘I got no clue.’ Thankfully, I didn’t have to stay on that project. That would probably be one of the weirdest things that I have tried to make or acquire, a giant egg and turkey costume for someone to pop out of, like The Gobbledy Goooker.”
Had it happened, I’m sure wrestling fans on Twitter wouldn’t have said a thing about it.
