In an interview with the Le Batard & Friends South Beach Sessions podcast, Tony Khan talked about the lack of scripting in AEW:

ďI think thatís kind of part of the appeal of the show, itís old and itís new, itís like the newest, most exciting, fast paced, high flying wrestlers of today, and itís new and itís old in that, our promos are, weíre almost like the Curb Your Enthusiasm of wrestling because I really donít believe in sending a wrestler out there with a 10 page soliloquy and a script to memorize, and I find when I watch other wrestling shows itís often like painful to watch people talk, and sometimes these are really charismatic guys that could hold like a really, really, really interesting conversation, but theyíre being force-fed dialogue that no actual human being would ever say in a realistic, conversational situation, and somehow, these guys, weíre supposed to believe them, and believe in them, and when I was a kid, I would have never gotten behind someone that was reading that kind of a script. I really believed in the charismatic wrestlers of my childhood.Ē
