Tony Schiavone Comments On Paige VanZant’s Work In AEW, Punk/Kingston Promo On Rampage

Tony Schiavone recently appeared as a guest on the What Happened When podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the appearance on the program, the AEW commentator spoke about the Eddie Kingston and CM Punk promo from AEW Rampage, being impressed with Paige VanZant’s work in the company thus far and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On the Kingston – Punk promo: “That was amazing TV. I remember I was at the Go position watching and listening. I looked over at, I think it was Dean Malenko. Tony Khan, I’m not so sure he was over two seats from me. I remember looking, saying, ‘This is some entertaining sh*t we got going on here guys.’ Then it was over and then Eddie came to the back. I got up, went over to him, and said, ‘My God.’ He said, ‘Was it good?’ I said, ‘It was fu**ing good.’ He said, ‘That means a lot coming from you.’ I said something to CM Punk too about how great it was. I don’t think on a wrestling promo that you can get better than that. We’ve seen good ones, but I had someone when it was going on said, ‘Is this a shoot?’ I thought wow, that’s when you know it’s good.”

On being impressed with Paige VanZant in AEW: “Paige has a great personality. She has a great camera presence. She’s really cool. I think Paige would make a great pro wrestler. You know what she’s good at? She’s probably better at it than anybody else and that’s one of the reasons why Jericho picked her out, is I think she’s good at talking smack.”
