Paul Wight has been part of the AEW family for well over two years now and hasn’t really been an active competitor whatsoever. That said, he did have a match earlier this month and now Wight will require a knee assessment after that match.

Paul Wight made his in-ring return on the November 15th episode of AEW Dynamite as part of the Like A Dragon Gaiden Street Fight. He partnered up with Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi and would go on to defeat Konosuke Takeshita, Brian Cage, Kyle Fletcher and Powerhouse Hobbs.

Wight hit a major chokeslam on Fletcher and then brawled with Powerhouse Hobbs. He would then be taken out of the match early after Hobbs slammed him onto the hood of a car.

While speaking on Talk Is Jericho, Chris Jericho provided an update on Paul Wight’s health status following the bout. Le Champion revealed that Wight will need to get his knee checked and clean some things out.


“We wanted to focus on Show’s positive — I call him Show, you know what I mean, Paul Wight — Paul had hurt his knee and has some issues where I think he has to get some of that cleaned out right now. The idea was to involve him, showing some of his strengths. Originally, he just wanted to be in the back, but I said, ‘the people in the arena are going to want to see you.’ He came out, beat some guys up, did some Paul Wight big chops and chokeslammed Fletcher through a table on the floor, which is huge. Him and Hobbs fight to the back and Hobbs ends up slamming him onto the roof of a car, which is insane, the bump that he took. It also continues to build Hobbs as a giant killer. That worked great, I think we did a great job with Show’s presentation there.”

Paul Wight’s in-ring comeback was also confirmed to be one off. Regardless, it remains to be seen what the future holds for The World’s Largest Athlete, as he hasn’t done much in AEW at all.
