Since its inception in 2019, AEW has strived to offer a correct different product to WWE. For essentially the most half, they’ve succeeded however there are nonetheless many areas of enchancment.
For a lot of, AEW was seen as a breath of contemporary air and likewise that old-fashioned nostalgia as the corporate tried to steadiness each the fashionable and old-fashioned points of professional wrestling. Nevertheless, it additionally doesn’t stray removed from the bizarre points of professional wrestling as nicely.
It appears AEW President Tony Khan had a really weird thought for a Thanksgiving episode of AEW Dynamite. Whereas talking on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, former BTE Champion Charlie Ramone, who’s the Particular Initiatives Supervisor in AEW, talked about his time working with the corporate.
Ramone recalled the time Tony Khan requested him to get props that had been harking back to the Gobbledy Gooker as Khan apparently wished a large egg and turkey for a Thanksgiving episode of AEW Dynamite.
“So far as acquisitions, there’s loads that you just haven’t seen that I’ve needed to flip down. In all probability one of many weirdest ones was the turkey for the Thanksgiving episode. Tony wished a large egg and a turkey. As a result of that was a bit of bit out of my scope and I had quite a lot of stuff to do, that bought delegated to a different group of individuals.
And when that didn’t get completed, I keep in mind Tony sitting there speaking to me saying, ‘I used to be instructed that simply couldn’t occur. How on earth may it occurred in 1985, however it might’t occur in 2019?’ I mentioned, ‘I bought no clue.’ Fortunately, I didn’t have to remain on that venture. That may in all probability be one of many weirdest issues that I’ve tried to make or purchase, a large egg and turkey costume for somebody to come out of, like The Gobbledy Goooker.”
It’s actually grateful that AEW didn’t go forward with one thing just like The Gobbledy Goooker as that may have harm the corporate’s popularity greater than something.
