Johnson also reported that one of his sources stated that the post-production editing and mixing took around ten hours in total and was finished with less than an hour before Dynamite was scheduled to air.
In regards to the song used, Johnson stated that it as a version of “Me and My Shadow” by Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. AEW reportedly went out and got the license to use the actual song but had also discovered that there was an instrumental version out there suitable for the segment. AEW musical producer Mike Rukus reportedly created a version of the instrumental song and received approval from both the original publisher of the song and the Frank Sinatra Estate to use it on television.
