Update on AEW hiring WWE’s former Vice President of Global Television Production

It was previously reported that Michael Mansury, the former Vice President of Global Television Production for WWE, has been hired by AEW and will start his duties with the company this week. Fightful Select noted the following in regards to internal reactions…

“We’ve already heard from talent and staff within both AEW and WWE who were happy about the hiring, and believe that it will go a long way in helping AEW’s content. One WWE source said that he’s a good hire specifically because he’s more in touch with AEW’s demographic, and can significantly increase the level of production the company has. One WWE source that heavily criticizes AEW to us, said that he saw this as AEW’s biggest hire this year.”

Mansury was reportedly seen as the “likely replacement” for Kevin Dunn until Mansuary left WWE in May of 2020. It’s believed that Triple H wasn’t expected to bring back Mansury unless Dunn stepped down from his spot which didn’t happen.
