Right now, it’s easy to forget that All Elite Wrestling is a very young wrestling company. They’ve only been running shows for just about three years, and have been doing a damn good job of building up a passionate fanbase. Despite this, they’ve definitely been making their share of mistakes when it comes to their growing pains. Storylines have been sloppy at times or even outright forgotten, and oftentimes things are very predictable. The worst mistake is running segments that feel identical on the same show, but Chris Jericho has now claimed that could be a thing of the past.
Often on AEW Dynamite, it isn’t hard to see some overlap in how certain segments were put together. From multi-man brawls before or after the bell to similar finishes, it’s an issue that can turn fans away. However, this is a known issue.
Chris Jericho Says AEW Is Working On Better Coordination Backstage
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Chris Jericho would address these issues and say that AEW is working on fixing them.
“I am involved in some of the overall backstage ideas and thoughts. We have a production meeting now before the show that wasn’t happening a lot. We have an agents meeting and coaches meeting before the show that wasn’t happening a lot. The reason for this is so we don’t have the same thing happening twice. We don’t want to have a beatdown with a coffee cup in segment two and a beatdown with a coffee cup in segment three because nobody coordinated that with anyone else.
You’ll see a lot more of that because we realized we are doing some similar things in the same show and how can we eliminate that? If Jericho is worried about his stuff and Kenny and Don are worried about their stuff and Cody is worried about his stuff, we know what we’re doing but we don’t express that to each other and sometimes things are similar. We’ve really been working on that and it’s been paying off to where we’re not stepping on each other’s toes and still allowing everyone to be creative and have awesome ideas,”
Getting more organized in this way is a great step to helping AEW Dynamite become an even better wrestling show, and shows that they are aware of their growing pains and issues.
