Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Tony Khan has apparently taken the reins a little more with AEW’s creative over the past few weeks.
It started when Khan took on more control after the December 18th episode of Dynamite in Corpus Christi, Texas. This show drew criticism for a few reasons as it was the episode with the much-criticized Dark Order main event attack on The Elite.
According to the report, some of the more long-term planning aspects of storylines are partially due to Khan’s getting more involved.
Khan has been the “driving force” behind the creative for many of Dynamite’s big storylines including the Jon Moxley-Inner Circle angle.
