Scotty 2 Hotty Talks About His Coaching Philosophy Backstage As An AEW Producer

We at Real Rasslin have come to learn.

Scotty 2 Hotty joined All Elite Wrestling (AEW) in 2023 as a producer and coach after several years working for the WWE at the Performance Center. While his new role shares some similarities in offering advice and teaching talent, the live arena aspect makes things markedly different for him, a change he enjoys.

"I think it's easier for me to coach by watching them work in front of a live audience," he told "AEW Unrestricted." "So much of what I do is moments, and character stuff and the psychology and the storytelling. I always say any monkey can do the moves, [anyone] with any athletic ability can do the moves, and when I was younger I thought that's what it was about." 

The in-ring product is important, particularly in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) which provides a more sports-based style, however, Scotty 2 Hotty brings a different philosophy to the company as he believes it's about creating moments as opposed to just the moves. That's something he's learned throughout the years, going from somebody who took private gymnastic lessons to nail a moonsault that he thought would land him a contract, to entertaining millions by dancing with Too Cool or hitting the Worm.

"If I can see them perform in front of an audience it's easier for me to critique them, rather than being in a training facility where you're teaching," he said. "You can teach, but I think I'm more valuable as a coach to teach watching them in front of an audience."

Thank you to "AEW Unrestricted" with a H/T to Wrestling Inc. for the transcription.
