Jacksonville, FL – AEW officials have finally paid their outstanding electric bills in arenas across the country. The change will end the frequent “lights out” on-screen moments that have plagued and befuddled production for years.
The issue was first noticed by the Billing department soon after a former Jacksonville Jaguars employee was accused of stealing millions from the company. Years of delinquent payments to various venues had caused intermittent blackouts during multiple live and taped broadcasts.
“Suzy over in Accounting really came through,” said AEW head Tony Khan. “We couldn’t figure out how the lights kept going out every other Dynamite or Collision or Rampage. I assumed someone just kept leaning on a light switch or something. But some digging around in Quickbooks and Workday and we’re all squared away now.”
Now that the accounts have been settled, certain groups that relied on the lights turning off will have to resort to other methods for sneaking into the ring. House of Black plan to cover the camera with their hands while The Dark Order are going to ask the live crowd and viewers at home to shut their eyes until all members are in the ring.
