• Batista On If He’ll Sign With AEW This Sunday At Revolution PPV
On this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, “The Big Show” Paul Wight made his official All Elite Wrestling debut and he was interviewed by Tony Schiavone.
Paul talked about being a commentator on AEW’s new YouTube show, Elevation.
He then ended his interview with a major announcement – AEW will announce their newest signing, a Hall of Fame worthy talent, this Sunday at AEW Revolution 2021 pay-per-view.

AEW President Tony Khan appeared on the AEW Unrestricted podcast and had the following to say about this new signing:
“He told the world, and it’s true, that there’s going to be a big star signed with AEW. He’s coming here and it’s absolutely true what Paul said, this Sunday, a major star in the world of wrestling.
A huge star is going to come and sign a multi-year contract with AEW on Sunday at the pay-per-view. So, I can confirm what Paul said is true and I’m not talking about the person in the ladder match.
I’m talking about…we have a fun sixth person in the ladder match, but the person that I’m saying is going to come and sign a multi-year contract with AEW, the person that Paul referenced, that’s not the sixth person in the ladder match.”
A fan began speculation that former WWE Champion Batista could be AEW’s latest signing as he tweeted the following:
“Wait… @PaulWight said “Evolution” instead of Revolution was that on purpose? He says “hall of fame worthy” too. So gotta ask @DaveBautista just curious where you will be this Sunday?”
Batista replied the following to this fan:
“They’re going to have to come up with another word thats used specifically for professional wrestlers who actually mean it when they say they’re retired. Currently the word “retired” has zero credibility by professional wrestling standards. 🤦🏻 “
