Tony Schiavone Pitches Change To AEW TV
Tony Schiavone wants some changes to AEW TV
Tony Schiavone knows TV wrestling, as the former voice of WCW has worked in the industry for over 30 years.
Schiavone has been part of the announce team of All Elite Wrestling since its inception in 2019, and during a conversation with Conrad Thompson on What Happened When, Schiavone revealed he would like to bring his AEW Control Center segments to AEW TV:
"I would love it to air on television," said Schiavone.
"Do you think the thought is, people won't stay tuned for that?" questioned Conrad.
"That's a question for Tony Khan. He's really into giving them action, and there is times we talk to him about 'should we take a little time to sell this, sell that,' he said, 'No, we need more action.' Our promos are a minute, where back in the day they used to let the promos go. he is so into making sure it's time for wrestling that it cuts away from all the other stuff. I agree," said Schiavone.
Control Center currently airs on AEW’s YouTube channel, with Schiavone running down the storylines and highlights of the previous week before entering into Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision.
Some critics of AEW’s presentation have noted that some of AEW’s online and social media content should also be presented on AEW broadcasts.
