AEW presented All Out and the pro wrestling world is still buzzing over what Tony Khan’s company brought to the table. The event included some important in-ring debuts for the company, including Paul Wight. He took on QT Marshall between the two biggest matches of the night, but there was a reason for that decision.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained that Wight vs Marshall was placed in that position on the card for a very good reason. If the rest of the matches ran long then they could always nix that bout.

“So, can I tell the story about why this match was in this spot? Because they were afraid that all the matches would go long, and if they did this could be axed. So, that’s why it was put in this spot.”

QT Marshall and Paul Wight only got about three minutes for their match, but that’s all they needed. Their match was a big deal for the former Big Show, but it was also a buffer match for the pay-per-view. We will have to see if Paul Wight gets more time for his next match.
