On a recent edition of his “What Happened When” podcast, Tony Schiavone expressed his view that AEW announces too many matches in advance. He said,
“Tony [Khan] wants to announce a lot of the matches. I’m not so sure I always agree with that. I mean, if it’s a gigantic match, yes, and something you’ve never seen, but sometimes we just…I think we announce too much. But that’s what he wants to do, so we do it.”
This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite saw several matches announced in advance, including ‘Hangman’ Page vs. Swerve Strickland and the AEW World Tag Team Championship match.
The match pitting the stars of CMLL against the Blackpool Combat Club was also announced to fans long before the show went on the air.
