Long-time wrestling director and producer Keith Mitchell retires after Dynamite

Keith Mitchell, a long-time producer and director, worked his final night in that role yesterday and retired following the New Year’s Smash episode of Dynamite.

With a career spanning 40 years across WCCW, WCW, Impact Wrestling, and All Elite Wrestling, Mitchell was in the TV truck directing some of the most important events in pro wrestling history. He never worked for WWE and attempts to lure him there over the years proved unsuccessful.

After Dynamite went off the air, Arn Anderson, Sting, Dustin Rhodes, Cody Rhodes, Chris Jericho, Tony Schiavone, and Tony Khan brought out Mitchell and his wife in the middle of the ring for a final goodbye.
