Tony Khan Comments On How He Changed His Booking Format To Help Storylines And Organisation

With the amount of things Tony Khan is involved in, organisation is key to him. Khan runs a busy schedule running AEW and ROH as well as involvement with Fulham FC and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Since the start of AEW, Khan has openely said that he used to fantasy book and write wrestling cards when he was a kid, and it’s no secret that Khan is a wrestling fan at heart. Khan uses that same format when organising and booking the ROH and AEW shows, organising stuff on paper, which then gives him a good idea of how to transfer that to the tv shows.

Khan recently spoke on WTF With Marc Maron and also showed Maron his booking sheet, Khan said: “I had a process, I already had a schedule of what I had planned week to week in different stories with different matches and segments. At some point, I just inverted it. I realized I should tip this over. Instead of looking at the dates and building it out, I kind of flipped what the column was and what the rows were, and put the columns where the rows were, and now I organize everything like this since Full Gear and now I feel like I’m more organized, even though it’s all the same information, it’s just looking at it differently. It really helps”

It was mentioned that Khan’s booking sheet looked like a storyboard used for different bits of entertainment, Khan responded to that by saying: “I was already doing that, and we kind of had that, but I had it the other way where it was looking at the shows and I had where the columns were, and out here were the different wrestlers and stories. For some reason, and I don’t know why, it shouldn’t make that big of a difference flipping it. The flow, working down the page, it looks a lot better and works a lot better. It’s basically the same thing I was doing, I just flipped the page around, and it’s helped me be even more organized.”

Along with the improved organisation, Khan also complimented the roster for putting on consistently great shows for AEW Dynamite and Rampage, whilst also thanking the fans for their loyalty and support of AEW.
