WRITING WRESTLING TELEVISION

Hear how WWE did it. SEE how we do it.

The most crucial aspect of pro wrestling's salability, its television, is explored here. The man who wrote WWE television beside Vince McMahon and Pat Patterson for years, JJ Dillon, joins us to explore the art and science of doing just that - writing wrestling television.

  • When should a run-in be employed?
  • How to use promos and packages?
  • How does one choose a TV arena?
  • What does it mean politically if Wrestler A makes the save for Wrestler B on TV?

We gave JJ a fictional pay-per-view supercard from the early 90s era and gave him one month of TV with which to advance the angles. See how JJ uses the weekly A and B shows, as well as a Saturday Night Network Special to build up to the pay-per-view at month's end. He then books the results of that big card.

JJ shows us how to use just the right amount of exposure for select angles for a most effective build-up. The booker's job doesn't end there, as we hear about the very delicate practice of employing diplomacy in dealing with the "big egos/TV time" equation.

Dillon talked extensively about how "dirt sheets" changed the wrestling business and what his role was, along with others in the WWF, dealt with them. Dillon details how he was the official leak to Dave Meltzer and why he did it.

Dillon is brought to tears from the emotion of talking about his late friend, Florida promoter Eddie Graham, and their relationship.

A very open and thought provoking Q&A session!

Enjoyed this one (not as much as the Gabe Sopolsky one). Sheds lot of light in the process of TV style booking.
