Paul Wight is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world as he worked in the business for well over two decades. Paul Wight shocked the pro wrestling world when he officially announced that he will be working in AEW a few months ago.

Since his appearance in AEW he has been working as part of the AEW commentary team and is certainly having a great time there. However, he has yet to compete inside the ring in the company.

While speaking to WrestleZone, Paul Wight stated that he has been studying AEW’s roster and will put on his wrestling boots real soon.

“One of the things Tony Khan and I talked about was me taking my years of experience over decades of competing all over the world against some of the biggest stars the world has ever seen,” Wight said. “How do I employ that in the AEW environment? I’ve been around a long time. I’m also the new kid in town and my thing wasn’t to come in and take up TV time away from younger talent.


With me starting out in a commentary role, it gave me a chance to study the AEW product, study the AEW talent and become familiar with them. So when I start putting on my boots real soon, I already have an idea of all the talent I’m working and what they’re trying to achieve individually and take some of my experience and help build on that.”

We will have to see when Paul Wight will make his in-ring debut in AEW and who he will be facing off against. The AEW roster is full of talented wrestlers who would love to lock up with the big man, but he can only have one first match in the company.
