The Role of a Producer in AEW

For those unfamiliar with the inner workings of professional wrestling, the role of a producer might seem unclear.

In AEW, producers play a crucial role in ensuring that the matches run smoothly and that the timing is perfect. They stay on the headset during matches, coordinating with the talent involved and making sure that everything goes according to plan.

Producers also communicate with the production team, relaying important information to ensure that the most significant moments are captured live.

This role requires a deep understanding of the wrestling business, as well as the ability to think on one’s feet and make quick decisions.
