• Big Show Reveals Who He Wants To Wrestle In AEW, Says He & Mark Henry Lied To Each Other
WWF Legend The Big Show, who now works for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling under his real name Paul Wight, was recently interviewed by the Miami Herald, where he spoke about leaving WWE after 21 years with the company and going to AEW.
Below are the highlights from the interview:
On a match against Shaquille O’Neal in AEW:
“I hope so at some point. It’s been the biggest tease ever between Shaq vs. me for how many years. At some point, you either never do it because you can’t live up to the tease or we need to hurry up and do it before it gets to be yesterday’s news.”
On who else he wants to wrestle in AEW:
“There’s a lot of the younger guys in there I see a lot of talent in. I mean, if I went to the top, I’d go right to our champion at the top, Kenny Omega. I know for a fact in a situation with Kenny Omega, we could tear the house down.
Kenny Omega is that good. He could have a match with anyone, but me working a bigger, giant style with an athlete like Kenny Omega, we could definitely rip the house down, rip it apart. I think Kenny Omega, I think Lance Archer, The Murderhawk, he’s just so big and impressive, ambitious.
I’d like to get in the ring with Miro (Rusev in WWE) again because Miro has really evolved since the last time that Miro and I worked together. I would love to work with Miro again. He’s so vicious and aggressive and his combative style will mix up really great with me and kind of a good slug fest.
Wardlow is another younger talent that’s coming up that has a lot of potential. Jake Hager of course, I’ve battled with him back in the day. I used to break all his trophies. He’s really seasoned up so there’s a lot of guys I would like to get in there and mix it up with again. That’s the thing, Hangman Adam Page is another one.”
On Mark Henry lying to him and him lying to Mark about going to AEW:
“No, we both lied to each other. I lied to Mark Henry before I went to AEW and then when he was coming to AEW, he lied to me about coming so, we both, the term in the business is called kayfabe and we’re old timers and we appreciate kayfabe and I mean, he did that years ago when he had on that pink salmon jacket and was gonna retire and dropped his boots at that stage and I was at home watching and I got all emotional and then he turned heel and got me all upset. If I had been there, I would have kicked his butt.”
