• Big Show Bringing Back Old Character Tonight At AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam?

Old School WCW/WWF Legend “The Big Show” Paul Wight appeared in 1998 movie “The Waterboy”, where he was a pro-wrestler called Captain Insano.

Wight, who works for All Elite Wrestling now, revealed earlier this year in March that he is going to bring back the Captain Insano character in a few months.

Below is what the former WWE Champion said on The Rob Brown Show:

“Tony Khan and I have some pretty fun stuff coming up in the future that him and I put together.

So we’ve actually secured the rights to Captain Insano, so we are going to break out. Captain Insano will be coming out in the next couple of months, so that’s why I’ve kind of toned down a little on the in-ring performing as well. We’re kind of let that settle, doing the commentary work.

I’m getting a wardrobe together now for the outfits. Max Dunbar, who is an incredible comic book design guy helped draw the outfit up for Captain Insano.

We’re getting that made now and before you know it, Captain Insano’s going to be running wild in AEW dude.

Hopefully the fans will be excited about him. For me, it’s just a chance to have fun and really apply a different character.

The Captain Insano character is just going to have a lot more energy, a lot more enthusiasm from A to Z. So definitely when Captain Insano hits the scene, the party is going to be lit, to steal a word from the younger generation.

I’m looking to have a lot of fun. Like I’ve got a luxurious cape too. So I’m super excited.

I’m a pretty talented guy. I’m really capable of getting into character. But I’m gonna tell you right now, I mean, I don’t have the acting ability to make my hair grow back. You know?

Captain Insano is a little bit more bald. He’s cut the hair for a more streamlined headbutt approach. I don’t know what kind of BS I just said right there but trust me, I miss that long mane of luxurious hair too.”

It looks like Big Show could be debuting Captain Insano in All Elite Wrestling tonight, as Tony Khan tweeted the following GIF ahead of tonight’s show:

So far, Wight has competed in 3 matches in AEW, with two of them being 3-on-1 Handicap Matches. He has won all of them.

His AEW debut match took place at the All Out 2021 pay-per-view, where he defeated QT Marshall.
