AEW’s Booking Strategy When It Comes To Planning Storylines

It was reported earlier this week that WWE’s script for Raw was being written as the show was going on.

With All Elite Wrestling’s debut show, Double or Nothing, less than a week away, as well as their weekly television show happening in October. Their booking process and storyline planning has already made the news.

Dave Meltzer reported that PAC vs. Hangman Page would not take place at Double or Nothing because of creative differences. The rumor is that PAC did not want to lose as Dragon Gate champion, and he was scheduled to beat Hangman Page but lose to Kenny Omega in the future. Which kind of gives away the finish of the Omega/Jericho match at DoN.

Cody Rhodes sat down with Chris Van Vliet and during the interview, Cody alluded to their long term storyline planning.

I’d say we have a pretty good bearing on 6 months to a year. Exactly that. Long form storytelling is great in every medium whether it is film or TV or whatever it may be to know and work backwards. We’ve got a good, what would I call it, like a syllabus? There’s a syllabus to what we’re going to do but one thing that Matt Jackson is really good about pointing out is some things just catch fire and one thing that we want to do differently than any other wrestling that’s out there is you can’t deny something when it catches. So if something catches, we’re going to push that, we’re going to promote that. If an individual catches, we’re going to push that, we’re going to promote that. And that all starts at Double or Nothing
