Paul Wight used to be known as Big Show in the WWE and was always a highlight on WWE television, for one reason or the other. Wight spent more than twenty years there before he decided to make his take his skills to AEW last year. Many fans also feel that The Big Show was not given the respect he deserves in WWE for many years. It seems even Jim Ross believes Big Show was booked horribly in WWE.

Despite his successful career in WWE, The Big Show was often made a joke due to Vince McMahon turning him into a heel or babyface at the most random of times with no logical reasoning behind it. This was very apparent during his storyline with The Authority back in 2013.

While speaking on his Grillin JR podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross talked about The Big Show’s booking in WWE. Ross stated that he believes The Big Show was one of the worst-booked talents in WWE history.

“You just cannot overexpose an attraction because guess what? They cease being an attraction. They’re not new, they’re not fresh, they’re not different, they’re not eye-opening. I really just think that Big Show was one of the most ill-booked talents, on that level, that we ever had.”


Vince McMahon even pranked The Big Show on live television in Santa Claus segment. Triple H also allegedly did not want to put The Big Show over during WWE events. Wight is currently working in AEW, and he couldn’t be happier there, as it truly feels like home for him.
