• “What were you doing all weekend?” – Tony Khan On Reports Of Vince McMahon Tearing Up Scripts A Few Hours Before RAW

For the last couple of years, there have been a lot of reports that Vince McMahon tears up RAW scripts just hours before the show and tells the writers to re-write the whole show.

During an interview with Forbes, AEW President Tony Khan questioned why Vince does such things and what McMahon does all weekend.

Below is what Khan said:

“To be honest, when I hear about somebody going in, and they have a TV show on Monday that they rip up. My first thought is, ‘what were you doing all weekend?’ Because I work my a$$ off on the weekends.

I have to come in with a plan for Wednesday, and Friday night, I want to make sure Dynamite’s great, and Rampage.

So, I don’t do everything myself, but I do make the final decision on everything. I put the format together, I put an outline of what the show is going to be for Dynamite and Rampage, I write it by hand.

I don’t understand why you’re going to come in and rip up a show that you have a pretty good idea of what it is. And you should have approved it, where Monday, we know what we’re doing.

Things change on the day of the show, not that I never change my mind on the day of, I do. Not where I am going to change everything, I might change one or two things around on instinct or because something happened.

But, for the most part, I like to have a good idea of what is going to be on the show next week, and the week after. I really believe that the fans like that we try our best not to insult their intelligence.

I do try to make the shows compelling, and also logical. I think that’s also one of the challenges, because a lot of times people come to you with ideas, and it’s hard because everyone has got their own approaches and their own philosophies. But, there’s a tone to the show.

So, I really just want people to go out and make the points, and keep the stories going. I’m not so autocratic that I want to control every word somebody says on television. I think that’s also why some of our interviews, our storytelling in promos are really strong, I believe.”
