Big Show who currently works in the AEW under his real name Paul Wight recently spoke to WNYT where he talked about the differences between WWE and AEW. He also talked about how Tony Khan not into the fourth wall much. He said;
“It’s different in the fact that it’s wrestling oriented. Both companies say that, but there is a difference in how things are presented. WWE does an amazing job in presenting things in this big entertainment spectacle. It’s a giant production. AEW gets to the grassroots. We still have incredible production and an incredible production team. It’s not so much backstage drama and backstage vignettes.”
“The fourth wall, so to speak, Tony Khan doesn’t like that fourth wall. He doesn’t like that, ‘why is there a camera there catching this conversation and both participants ignore that there is a camera crew there while they are talking top secret information.’ It’s one of those things that throws you off. If there is a camera there, it’s set up in a way that makes sense for a camera to be backstage, but it’s more focused on the talent in the ring.”
