Despite its consistently robust viewership, AEW Dynamite has received some criticism because it has featured similar segments lately. For examples, some fans have pointed out the show’s reliance on stable-based beatdowns and rescues.
“We have a production meeting now before the show that wasn’t happening a lot,” said Jericho. “We have an agents meeting and coaches meeting before the show that wasn’t happening a lot. The reason for this is so we don’t have the same thing happening twice. We don’t want to have a beatdown with a coffee cup in segment two and a beatdown with a coffee cup in segment three because nobody coordinated that with anyone else.
“You’ll see a lot more of that because we realized we are doing some similar things in the same show and how can we eliminate that? If Jericho is worried about his stuff and Kenny [Omega] and Don [Callis] are worried about their stuff and Cody (Rhodes) is worried about his stuff, we know what we’re doing but we don’t express that to each other and sometimes things are similar. We’ve really been working on that and it’s been paying off to where we’re not stepping on each other’s toes and still allowing everyone to be creative and have awesome ideas.”
