• Tony Schiavone Gets A Promotion In AEW
AEW Commentator / Interviewer Tony Schiavone has a new role in All Elite Wrestling: Senior Producer, Special Advisor & Talent Relations.
During an appearance on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Schiavone had the following to say about his new role:
“I’m very honored to have been promoted by Tony Khan. It’s a crew of us that have been promoted. It’s QT Marshall, Sonjay Dutt, Pat Buck, and myself. [We all] have been promoted within the confines of what’s going on.
My job is now Senior Producer, Special Advisor & Talent Relations. I love that special advisor role.
I do a lot of running during the day, trying to talk to talent. Then what I’ll do is when I don’t have a specific thing to do, like run go get this person because Tony (Khan) wants to talk to them and we need to hammer out some things and bring him back into Tony’s office.
Basically, what I do [is I] walk around during the day and ask people how they’re doing and ask them if they’re happy. If there’s anything we can do to make it better. That’s very, very important, I think we are really making good strides. I really do.”
