Tony Khan Explains How He Changed His Booking Layout To Help Stories And Organization

Tony Khan keeps a busy schedule with running AEW and ROH while also contributing to Fulham FC and the Jacksonville Jaguars. As a man wearing many hats, Khan keeps everything in check by staying organized.

Khan has said many times since the start of AEW that he has been booking wrestling shows since he was a kid, writing down various matches and segments in his notebook when growing up. Khan keeps that same energy as the owner of AEW and ROH, organizing stories on paper to get an idea of where he wants to go on television.

"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," Khan said on WTF With Marc Maron while showing Maron and his co-host his booking sheet.

When it was mentioned that Khan's sheet looked like a storyboard used for many mediums of entertainment, Khan said, "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 better organization, Khan praised the roster for putting on great episodes of AEW Dynamite and AEW Rampage on a weekly basis. He also praised and thanked the fans for their continued support of AEW.
