The Big Show might hold a record for most heel and babyface turns in pro wrestling history. It’s a long-running joke with fans, for sure. Now that he’s in AEW, that opens up another big question of how Tony Khan will book him.
Cody Rhodes spent time with Big Show in WWE. He also knows how suddenly the big man can turn. He commented to clear up the situation to the best of his ability.
“He’s a babyface… (I think),” Cody said after sharing a personal story about how Paul Wight helped him along the way.
When I entered my first entitled-grizzled young vet phase (usually happens at the 2yr – 5yr – 7yr point), Big G gave me the reality check I sorely needed. I boldly told him I didn’t want to do comedy in our matches anymore, and he gently put his hand on my knee and said…”cool, then go get over please”. When I left WWE back in 2016…I blindly flew to Hollywood for a series of general meetings, the most important/prolific of which was set up by Big G. He’s many many things besides being one of the greatest wrestlers to ever do it, the most important to me…his value as a true and credible leader. A great model for all of us in AEW. Welcome @paulwight – oh…and he’s a damn babyface! (I think)
We’ll have to see what’s next for AEW and Paul Wight. There are a lot of options, and fane are likely going to be excited to see what Tony Khan has in store. It was also confirmed that Paul Wight will be wrestling along with providing commentary for the company’s upcoming AEW Dark: Elevation show.
