Paul Wight began his career as The Giant in WCW, but then he made a new name for himself as The Big Show in WWE, but he is now part of the AEW family. He made his in-ring return earlier this month and now it has been confirmed that his return was a one-off deal.

Paul Wight returned to the squared circle on the November 15th episode of AEW Dynamite as part of the Like A Dragon Gaiden Street Fight. He teamed up with Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi and defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Brian Cage, Kyle Fletcher and Powerhouse Hobbs.

He was also taken out of the match early after Powerhouse Hobbs slammed him onto the hood of a car, incapacitating him. While speaking on his Talk is Jericho podcast, Chris Jericho confirmed that Paul Wight’s in-ring return was a one-off affair.

It was a one shot thing for Paul to come back. Be the big man who is bigger than Hobbs. And then, you know, he has other ideas of things he wants to do, and I just thought it was perfect.”


Fans were happy with the way Paul Wight was used in the match, as he put over Powerhouse Hobbs massively in what might have become the final match ever in his career. Regardless, we’ll have to see what’s next in store for Paul Wight.
