Many things go on in AEW backstage. Since the start of this year, Tony Khan has apparently become more involved with AEW creative.
According to a report by PW Insider, Tony Khan “laid out” the tag team battle royal match on this week’s Dynamite. Fans certainly loved the match, especially the final moments. It was added that the Young Bucks, BJ Whitmer and QT Marshall provided help in making plans for the match.
Khan also apparently came up with the idea of Sammy Guevara holding up cue cards during commercial breaks. Now it has become a staple for the show.
It was also said that Khan wanted the lights to go out during Darby Allin’s return this past week on Dynamite. Allin received a huge pop and the factor of surprise caused by the darkness might have helped with that.
