This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite was a special one for a variety of reasons. On top of it being the final episode of the show on TNT, it also saw the end of a legendary producer’s career.
Veteran producer Keith Mitchell had been working in the world of professional wrestling for almost four decades. He has worked in various promotions such as WCW and Impact Wrestling.
Before the event, Tony Khan tweeted out to say:
Tonight’s the last #AEWDynamite ever on TNT & this event New Year’s Smash is very special as this will be the final wrestling event produced by the great Keith Mitchell in his amazing 40 year career spanning World Class/WCW/Impact/@AEW. Let’s make Keith’s retirement show a Smash!
Mitchell joined AEW in 2019 and has helped produce some of the most memorable moments in the company’s history so far. AEW President Tony Khan took to Twitter before AEW Dynamite and said that the New Year’s Smash would be a special one as Keith Mitchell will officially retire after the show.
After the conclusion of the show, many people came out to the ring and gave Keith Mitchell well wishes. We hope Mitchell can enjoy his life after retirement from now on.
