CaptainShawnDean works on the AEW Community Outreach team, helps book talent for AEW DARK and ELEVATION, is part of the Sammy Vlog crew, and is one of just 3 people who’ve beaten MJF at AEW! He tells the story of how he came to help CM Punk cost MJF a win, the role that QT Marshall and the Nightmare Factory played in his training and his AEW career, the phone call during the pandemic that changed his life, and “puttin’ on bangers for each other” at Daily’s Place. Shawn talks about growing up in South Side, Chicago, watching wrestling with his dad as a kid, his Navy career, playing arena football, starting wrestling training later in life in Atlanta, and the importance of believing in yourself. Shawn also explains what he looks for when booking talent for AEW, the best way to approach him if you want to be seriously considered, and why he’s so excited to see Daniel Garcia and Skye Blue’s growth.
Plus, Shawn answers fan questions about “hit him with the deal,” his 0-49 record on AEW DARK, and his Coach Cap bits on Sammy’s Vlog.
