AEW Changes Winter is Coming Graphic to No Longer Say "Wangman"

AEW has changed the graphic they've been using to promote Bryan Danielson vs. Hangman Adam Page at Winter is Coming to make clear that it's "Hangman" and not "Wangman" who will be taking on the American Dragon.

Though they didn't acknowledge the mistake, AEW did quietly alter the font to remove the flourish for the new graphic they've been using on social media and likely will use on AEW Rampage tonight. Here's what the graphic looks like now:

Well, that's better, if less amusing. Now let's hope AEW avoids any overly-gimmicked flaming table spots at the show and they'll be right back on track for a good night.
