WWE’s former Vice President of Global Television Production, Mike Mansury, was recently hired as AEW’s Senior Vice President and Co-Executive Producer. Following the hiring, changes were already expected. Tony Khan has now confirmed that changes are coming to AEW next month.

As part of the contract for hiring Mansury, Warner Bros. Discovery and AEW President Tony Khan decided to update the design of the show. The changes will go into effect at some time in January.

The magnitude of these alterations is unknown at this time. It could be as basic as new visuals or as drastic as a new stage set up or greater production value. Khan acknowledged the new look during an interview with TV Insider.

I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag necessarily, especially so close to the big day. But at the start of 2023, we’re going to open the year on Wednesday, January 4 with the first Dynamite in Seattle, marking a full year of Dynamite on TBS. We’ll definitely have a new look, to say the least. I’m excited about it.


I think it’s a nice thing to present to the fans, but frankly, I’ve found more so than ever, the more you talk about these things. When you build them up, you don’t want to create expectations that are impossible.

I will say the set will be beautiful though. The look of Rampage will also be different. This will affect the way people view AEW on Wednesdays and Fridays in terms of presentation with the set and the show with the same great action.

Khan also thanked Mansury for his contributions to the campaign, including his television production experience and enhancing the presentation. Keep an eye on Ringside News to get the latest AEW news and updates.
