Paul Wight spent two decades in WWE, where he was known as The Big Show. After making his way to AEW, he has been content with his job as an occasional in-ring performer. He also wanted to team up with the former AEW star.
Marko Stunt recently appeared on NBC Sports Boston’s The Ten Count podcast, where he discussed an interesting angle that Wight had discussed with him. Wight wanted to team up with him for a best buddy duo.
Me and him had talked a bit about doing an angle … I am getting beat week after week and bullied, and then he’s on commentary and I’m getting bullied one week, and finally, he gets tired of it and he throws his mic down, and he comes down to the ring and like, saves me. And this was him pitching it to me, actually. He’s like, ‘Yeah, and then we can form this best buddy duo and I’ll be your best friend,’ and he’s like, ‘Man, I’ll play it up so well.’ He’s like, ‘This is my best friend!’ and he started singing. That would have been my dream angle right there, regardless of where it was being posted. He’s like my favorite wrestler ever, so yeah, legitimately, my favorite wrestler of all time.
Marko Stunt participated in the inaugural Double or Nothing AEW event back in 2019, which eventually led him to sign a deal with the company. Stunt left the company after a short run. But it would have been interesting to see him link with Paul Wight if he had stayed.
After leaving All Elite Wrestling, Marko returned to GCW and has been working on several Independent dates as well. We will have to wait and see if a return to AEW is in his future.
