Brian Cage has detailed the AEW creative process, noting that he believes the promotion would benefit from more stars having a say in final decisions.
Speaking on Dan Severn and Don Frye’s ‘Toxic Masculinity’ Podcast, Cage stated that Tony Khan makes majority of the AEW booking decisions himself.
Arguing that more involvement from the EVPs could improve the product, Cage said:
“What’s crazy, creative team? No. It’s just Tony. Tony Khan who owns it (AEW) and he does so much anyway already, it’s literally just all him. He’ll have some help or input from other guys and some of the EVPs that you know helped start it like The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes. They kind of help do their own stuff, but Tony pretty much has the final and only say on majority of the entire product which is a little nuts. I do think that it could benefit with some of the people helping out on that.”
Cody Rhodes, AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and AEW Tag Team Champions Matt and Nick Jackson act as Executive Vice Presidents for the promotion.
Earlier this month, two episodes of AEW Dynamite beat their week’s respective episodes of WWE Raw in the key 18-49 demographic. Kenny Omega has now stated that he believes WWE has grown desperate.
