AEW has a lot of people backstage who worked in WWE. Now we have word that a former WWE Superstar is also producing matches for the company.

According to a report from Sean Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, Ariya Daivari is producing matches in AEW. He is respected backstage as Jamie Hayter and Britt Baker vs Thunder Rosa and Toni Storm is one result of his handiwork.

Ariya Daivari is working for All Elite Wrestling in a producer capacity. Specifically, we learned that Daivari helped produce the highly regarded Jamie Hayter & Dr. Britt Baker DMD vs. Thunder Rosa and Toni Storm match on the August 3 episode of Dynamite. Those that we spoke to said that Daivari laid the foundation for the match, and the participants themselves largely put things together.

Daivari was working on a trial basis as a WWE producer for the last several months along with Joe Hennig, but was let go recently. During that same period, he was still making AEW Dark appearances. Daivari had got to the point he was producing WWE matches solo for WWE Main Event.


We’ll have to see what the future holds for Tony Khan’s company. It seems that he is doing his best to use people to their full potential. Hopefully, this is a good sign as the company continues.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
