Malakai Black Reveals He Made A Request To Tony Khan That He Start Holding House Shows For AEW

Top AEW Star Malakai Black recently appeared on the HardLORE podcast to talk about a number of topics such as how it was him who requested AEW President and CEO Tony Khan to start holding house shows for All Elite Wrestling.

Malakai Black said:

“It was at my request that we’re doing live events. Initially, [Khan] was like, ‘Maybe.’ And I kept hammering down on him and others started chiming in too. … Eventually, he told me, what was it four or five months ago when I sat down with him, he basically said like, ‘We’re going to start doing live events in 2023’ and I was like, ‘Okay, put me on them.’ … There’s nothing more fun than live events because you can interact with the crowd.”

Malakai Black also talked about how house shows can be beneficial for the young talents as they learn how to get comfortable and how to work the cameras.

Malakai Black said:

“I think that a lot of young guys that are coming through now will need to learn how to work for cameras and learn how to get comfortable in front of an audience in a way that they don’t forget about, like, ‘Hey, take a breather and give people the opportunity to process what it is you just did.’ That doesn’t mean stand still and do nothing, but it’s all these little, little things that a lot of the younger kids in that locker room are now going to be able to pick up and get better because that’s the only way you’re going to get better.”
