Jack Evans was on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast to talk about his departure from AEW, his thoughts on Tony Khan as boss, AAA, Konnan, ROH and more.
Evans talks about his experience working in AEW with Tony Khan:
“I really liked it. It was a great experience. Tony was a great boss. The only complaint I could ever make about Tony is that he is the king of last minute exchanges. That would be my only complaint about him But other than that he was always really honest You always hear the stories about Vince having to be the alpha in the room Tony wasn’t like that You could go up and talk to him Of course you know he’s the boss, but I mean, he was never like that. When it comes to AEW, it’s all been pleasant experiences.”
Evans said AEW should use Dark to develop the talent’s characters and storylines:

“Anything you can do to bring out someone’s character, I really think you should. The development talent, if you bring them up, and they’re going to be thrown on national television and have to cut these corners and promos , it’s a learning experience. It’s not something that most people can do just like that, just go in front of 1,000 people and make a promo like that. I always think that if you have angles on Dark, then people you see yourself investing in the future, you practice them right and there so they don’t have to be baptized into the main show right away I always think you should have a take on Dark not just to make Dark a better show but literally practice because if you make a corner, a whole lot goes in.”
On approaching Tony Khan with ideas:
“He hangs out all the time after the show. He’s extremely approachable. If you want to pitch a corner, you can just go forward and pitch him. You don’t have to have a meeting on Tuesday or anything like that. He likes to talk about wrestling I think I would say the only thing he likes more than wrestling is the Fulham team I really think Fulham is his true passion even above AEW to be honest but he definitely has a real love for wrestling. ”
