Tony Khan claims the new AEW Dynamite set signals a new era for the company.

Just 24 hours after AEW shared a new logo for Dynamite, a new report has given a first look at the brand new set which will be used for the first time on March 6th.

The images from Sports Illustrated, confirm that the famous AEW tunnels will be returning, along with an updated big screen. In comments issued to the publication, AEW boss Tony Khan said the new set and the episode from Gas South Arena in Duluth, Georgia will signal the start of a new era.

“Tonight is the perfect time, especially coming off an amazing AEW Revolution. In many ways, it was the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one. Sting ended his phenomenal three-year run in AEW and the most iconic career in wrestling, going out on the highest of notes as an undefeated AEW tag team champion.

So tonight is the start of a new era, and people are going to be very excited when they see this new set on Dynamite.”

Head of Global Production Mike Mansury went on to confirm that Warner Bros. Discovery were involved in the revamp.

We have a phenomenal partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery, and this is a result of both sides coming together to create the final product.

We also have a phenomenal post-production team, with so many great, creative people.

Plus, our fans are very passionate. We listen. We’ve heard the calls for the old-school AEW vibes. We believe we’re delivering the next evolution of AEW with a tap of the cap to what got us here. I hope this is a look and feel our fan base is going to appreciate.”
