Perhaps looking to give their angles and storylines a boost AEW has hired a former WWE and soap opera producer to work on their programs.

Jennifer Pepperman has joined AEW as the Vice President of Content Development.

Pepperman was a senior writer and producer for the WWE from April 2017 to February 2024. She also had short stints as a producer and director on the soap opera One Life to Live and the Amazon series After Forever.

Adam Pearce acknowledged her departure just last week:


Pepperman has won three Daytime Emmys for Best Directing. She will work alongside CEO and Head of Creative Tony Khan in the development of content for all of AEW’s shows.

“Adding Jennifer Pepperman’s brilliant mind to the AEW team opens the door for exciting new ideas and will help us build upon the incredible stories currently developing on the road to AEW Revolution across our three weekly shows on TBS and TNT, and the effects of Jennifer’s arrival in AEW will be felt for many years in the future,” said Tony Khan. “We’re thrilled to welcome her today, and I look forward to her creativity and collaboration with our team across the board in what will be AEW’s biggest year yet, and beyond.”
