Backstage Details On Pre-Dynamite AEW Talent Meeting

Meanwhile, Schiavone used his time to discuss his past experiences in WCW, using that as an example for his recent promotion in the talent relations department. Sources told PWInsider that Schiavone came off well, with the AEW announcer being described as the “uncle who wanted all the kids in his family to succeed.”

As for Jericho and the Bucks, PWInsider reported that the JAS leader’s speech was an attempt to rally the troops, while the Bucks, notably Matt Jackson, stressed that they were easy to find and available for anyone who wanted to speak to them. This then led to Omega, who reportedly gave the most polarizing speech of the meeting. Sources were split in describing Omega’s speech, with some referring to it as “tough love” that tried to motivate the roster, while others found it to be “heavy-handed.”

After Omega, Parekh discussed aspects related to legal issues before handing the floor back to Khan. The AEW head closed the meeting with another impassioned speech about AEW and how much he had put into it. Notably, no reports on the meeting so far have directly mentioned anything to do with CM Punk and the rumored internal strife going on within the promotion, although the meeting happening does seem to be in some ways a reaction to those rumors.
