Dan Lambert can say what he likes, for the most part, about AEW programming thanks to Tony Khan’s hands-off approach.
Lambert is the founder of the American Top Team, a renowned mixed martial arts (MMA) gym, and now the spokesperson for Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky, collectively known as the Men of the Year. . The longtime pro wrestling fan often has his hands wrapped around an AEW microphone and says his words are, for the most part, his.
“Fortunately, over there you get information on what you’re going to do. You write your own scripts. You say what you mean. You can incorporate a part of your own personality if you want to and it seems like the people who get the best feedback do, ”Lambert told Cageside Seats. Shakiel mahjouri. “I think you see some guys in pro wrestling who come up with something that has nothing to do with how they really feel or who they really are. They force it and it doesn’t really connect with people.
Lambert says he can only talk about his own experiences, but his experiences are very liberating.
“I don’t know what it’s like for everyone there. I can only speak for myself, ”he begins. “But the first time I walked in I texted Tony before I got there and said, ‘Hey, I’m going to say something like that’, and he texted me back and said says, “Great. “
“He [Khan] obviously going to have some creative control if I’m going to do something that’s going to be stupid or get someone in trouble; although it might be fun to be canceled. But I don’t want to give her a headache, but at some point it could happen.
Lambert also explains how his friendship with Khan blossomed a few years ago. Khan was meeting Jorge Masvidal in Miami, Florida. Lambert received a call from Masvidal manager Malki Kawa, who informed Lambert that he would have to meet Khan, Lambert’s brother from whom he was figuratively “separated at birth”.
“I hung up the phone, looked at my wife and said, ‘See you, come home.’ And I dragged my ass, ”Lambert says. “Tony is just a super cool guy. He’s a wrestling nerd like me which is kinda crazy because he’s younger and hasn’t grown up watching the same stuff as me, but he knows all about it … when he’s got to miami, we were just talking and he said ‘hey, do you want to come do a promo. Bring some fighters, have fun? In my opinion, this would probably only be a one-time event. So we did and then he texted me and said, ‘Hey, do you want to come next week?’ “
