Kevin Sullivan, the Vice President of Post Production in AEW was let go today. (Not *that* Kevin Sullivan)

Major news behind the scenes in AEW, as Kevin Sullivan, the Vice President of Post Production was let go today. Mike Mansury, the Senior Vice President and Co-Executive Producer made the call. Sullivan, no relation to the more famous wrestler, was very highly thought of and had been with AEW from the earliest days, coming over from Impact. Sullivan built the entire AEW post production team that was based in Nashville so there are a lot of questions going around regarding what happened past the feeling that the original AEW has changed greatly.

That Kevin Sullivan: "I was not let go by AEW today."

There’s been a lot of chatter around the Internet about this, mostly negative. I have to admit, I’m curious as to the reasons why he was fired. It seems like an insane move on the surface, which is why I have to think there is a deeper reason for it.

Also, the replies at that link are hilarious. A bunch of way too online twats trying to dunk on Meltzer and SRS because they can’t tell their Kevins Sullivan apart.

tankplanker,

So was this Kevin in the truck? As whoever is in charge of that needs to be let go, cause if you worse than shaky cam Kev you are really bad.

In the truck? Possibly. The one causing the issues? Not sure.

The ones responsible for cutting to and from cams is usually the shows director (whoever that is). Sullivan was vp of post production, so he would have been the one overseeing promo packages, the show's intros, anything that's recorded in advance basically (or at least that would be by assessment based on the title/position).

Could be him, but I mean ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

tankplanker,

Ah in that case his work has been mostly really good, I just want the idiot in the truck gone, who zooms in on Mox trying to blade more than once and puts that on the live feed? Lol

Ditto lol. I don't need camera cuts to be perfect, but there's so many 'little things' that add up quick.
