Now as much can be speculated on TK's decision making and his publicly stated opinions on certain topics, his Dad has to know even more what works and doesn't work in terms of profits/loss, optics, perception, press handling, etc. etc. And not to mention he rarely, if ever, is mentioned when it comes to AEW's higher ups.
When All Out 2021 ended, AEW had all the momentum it seemed, and carried it through for quite a while. A year later and this press conference, I'm not sure what direction it's going to go in next, and with who's in and who's out.
AEW may be on the smaller side of investments compared to his other ventures, but its still a huge investment regardless. And I'm guessing Shahid has taken more things into account then his Son. At least that's how it seems. Do you see a point where, as you've suggested, TK takes a step back from the public eye, and Shahid moves someone in that can handle whatever fallout may be coming very soon? Shahid obviously sees the potential, growth, profit AEW can produce, but will he get more involved with recent events?
I figure Bobby Eaton is the likely answer here, but who do you consider as the wrestler born to work tag teams that just didn't hit the same stride as a single? I think of guys like Arn Anderson and Ricky Morton who were GREAT tag workers but also were great in singles. Who is the guy you loved in tag teams but didn't do it for you as a single?

If this is a shoot he’s a total dick, and if it’s a work, how does this benefit anyone?
No wonder the E didn’t want anything to do with him. HHH seems more correct every day.
It’s hilarious because I never watch those press scrums, but I was still awake after the show and was on YouTube and just decided to put it on in the background and HOLY CRAP did we get the most batshit crazy press conference I’ve ever seen.
I think Punk needs to take a seat, especially about the “million dollar gate” stuff, since they literally didn’t even announce the main event until the Dynamite last week. He’s a big draw but is he THAT big of a draw where he’s worth this much trouble? Starting to seem like it’s not the case.
I CANNOT believe that Drew didn’t win with that crowd. But whatever.
But my god. Couldn’t we just have had Tyson Not shake hands w Roman.
I mean wtf
Just have him go. GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE RING. And have Roman conwer. And then do there little singing thing.
Would have beeen more impactful.
Mine is a true, clean slate, build from the bottom up, GM/Booker Mode. House shows, tv, specials, ppvs. I get to control just about facet of every card of every wrestling day in a year, travel time taken into account too! Pump the EWR vibes into my veins!
