Tony Schiavone Will Not Be On The AEW Broadcast Team



Former WWF, WCW, TNA color commentator Tony Schiavone recently signed with AEW and caused a huge stir in the pro wrestling community.

However, Schiavone won’t be on the commentary team this time around. This may come off as a huge disappointment for many but the fact is, AEW had finished assembling their broadcast team even before Schiavone had put pen to paper and it was already too late to make any changes, additions or alterations to the existing commentary team.

During a recent interview with Wrestling Epicenter, Schiavone talked about his role in AEW.

“Okay, well, I do know I’m a producer. I’m going to be working on a lot of the videos you see in the shows. I’m going to be working behind the scenes when the live shows are going, the TNT shows. I’ve met with Tony Khan, I’ve met with, obviously, Cody.

Schiavone played a huge role during the Monday Night Wars. From 1990-2001, he served as the lead voice for WCW’s flagship show, Monday Nitro as well as Thunder. Prior to that, Tony also hosted WCW Saturday Night and WCW WorldWide.

“We do some production here in Atlanta… Cody and I actually live pretty close to each other so when I talked to Tony Khan, the idea was that I would do control centers and on-camera stuff, but I would not be on the broadcast team because his broadcast team was in place.”

On PWInsider Elite audio, Mike Johnson described Schiavone’s AEW role as being a “Mean Gene Okerlund for the company.” It is to be noted that the 61-year-old pro wrestling persona will be carrying out his duties from the AEW Command Center in Atlanta.

With WWE Hall Of Famers Jim Ross and Billy Gunn under AEW’s wing, it’s only a matter of time before Schiavone teams up with the duo to create some history-making product.
