AEW recently hired former WWE Vice President of Global Television Production Mike Mansury to serve as the company’s Senior Vice President and Co-Executive Producer and part of the deal includes the green light from Warner Bros. Discovery and AEW President Tony Khan to change the look of AEW’s Rampage and Dynamite, with the changes going into effect some time in January 2023, but there is no word yet what these changes are, though there are speculations that it could be as simple as graphics or as extreme as a new stage set up or increased production value.
AEW President Tony Khan spoke with TV Insider on the changes the promotion will be having in 2023 and revealed that he doesn’t want to disclose each and every detail now, especially since January is just around the corner, but the January 4th episode of AEW Dynamite in Seattle, which marks a full year of Dynamite on TBS, will definitely have a new look and he can also confirm that the look of AEW Rampage will be different as well.
This is what Tony Khan said:
“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.”
