Paul Wight started off his career as The Giant in WCW, but then he made a new name for himself as The Big Show in WWE. He spent two decades in WWE and took part in numerous storylines before parting ways with the company. He’s now part of the AEW family and hasn’t competed much since joining the company. That being said, he is confident a match against Kenny Omega would be a solid affair.
Paul Wight eventually decided to take his skills elsewhere and made his way to AEW back in 2021. The World’s Largest Athlete has been content working as part of the commentary team on AEW Dark: Elevation and occasionally competing in the ring.
Last year, Paul Wight revealed that he underwent hip replacement surgery and then also noted the fact that he did not want to take spots away from the younger talent.
While speaking in an interview with Deuce and Mo, Paul Wight talked about his future opponents in the coming and named a few. This included Kenny Omega as well. Wight stated that he believes a match with Omega would rip the roof off the building.
”There are a couple guys I want to work with. I definitely want to work with Kenny Omega at some point. I’m totally fascinated by a lot of stuff Kenny Omega does. Kenny and I could have a great big man, little man match. I have zero doubts in my mind we could rip the roof off the building. (Powerhouse) Hobbs, Wardlow. Even Darby Allin. I’d probably have to be a bad guy to compete against Darby Allin, but if I was a bad guy competing against Darby Allin, I could have the place rioting because he does such a good job with his character of selling and fighting from underneath.
Lance Archer is another one. Orange Cassidy would be fun to play with, maybe tag with. As an opponent, he’d probably irritate the hell out of me, but as a tag partner he’d be a lot of fun. I always tease Dark Order that I’m a card carrying member of Dark Order and I’m going to join Dark Order. There are so many great talents that whatever we put together, we’re going to have fun with. We have Satnam Singh, who is 7’2”, he’s a little green right now, but at some point, if I tag with him and show him how to tag team wrestle as a giant, that would be fun and maybe down the road split up into a feud there. The landscape is wide open to do whatever.”
Paul Wight has not competed in a match since March of last year. In fact, Wight also recently stated that he has years left in his pro wrestling career. We will have to wait and see when Wight will finally make his return to the squared circle.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for Paul Wight. While there are undoubtedly numerous opportunities for him to excel in AEW, he must also prioritize his physical well-being.
