That sounds like a plan. There are a lot of things that go down throughout a wrestling show, including things that do not take place in front of the audience. That is the kind of thing that you see take place on any given show, but at the same time, it does not mean that you are seeing something take place as it seems. Now we know a bit more about how a major promotion makes this work.
Fightful Select has some details on AEW’s backstage production setup. AEW reportedly films several of their backstage segments in advance rather than live in an effort to reduce travel costs. If a wrestler is only going to be at an event for a short backstage segment, it will be filmed in advance rather than bringing someone in for a full day. For example, Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland’s backstage segment in Cincinnati was filmed in Toronto the previous week to avoid bringing in Lee and Strickland for a brief moment of filming.
Opinion: This is one of those totally logical concepts and I have no idea why AEW wouldn’t do it. You can put up the backstage interview set anywhere and do exactly what you need. What difference does it make if a backstage segment is filmed in advance and no one can tell the difference? Do what makes sense and save a few bucks if you can, as it makes good sense.
What do you think of the idea? Does it matter to do this? Let us know in the comments below.
