Chris Jericho recently gave some insight on how Tony Khan lays out AEW PPVs in terms of match scheduling. Jericho spoke on the latest episode of his Talk is Jericho podcast about how Khan scheduled the matches on Full Gear and for other shows, noting that the AEW boss doesn’t tend to put matches in as “buffers” between bigger bouts.

“Any time you have a little bit of a street fight type thing, [it’s like] ‘Should you put a buffer match after it?'” Jericho said (per Wrestling Inc). “And I was like ‘Tony likes to structure his cards with part 1, part 2, part 3.’ And part 3 is always match 7, 8, and 9, let’s say. And I don’t have a problem going on after that match. Somebody has to. You could’ve put on a nonsensical, nothing match, but to me, this is the way the card is structured. You want three exciting matches, and I thought if anybody could follow the street fight, we could. We did. It took a bit to get the crowd into it, but I was very happy with how we did it.”
