WCW/WWF/WWE Legend ‘The Big Show’ Paul Wight joined Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling in February 2021, but so far has only wrestled 4 matches for the promotion.

At 51 years old, the talented Giant’s career is obviously coming to an end at some point in the not-so-distant future, which is why a fan on Twitter asked him about writing a book about his long illustrious career.

Here’s what Paul Wight replied in a Tweet of his own:

“Probably not. Well at least not until I retire. I’m still writing chapters in my life. Going to have fun with Captain Insano before I hang up the boots for good. But thank you for the inquiry.”

The ‘Captain Insano’ gimmick/character is actually from the popular 1998 Hollywood movie Waterboy, starring comedian Adam Sandler.

Big Show brought back this gimmick on the November 16th 2022 episode of AEW Dynamite:

After years in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1995-1999) as The Giant, Paul Wight debuted LIVE on PPV during the World Wrestling Federation’s ‘WWF In Your House 27: St. Valentine’s Day Massacre’ event at the Memphis Pyramid in Memphis, Tennessee on February 14th 1999.

He left the (renamed) WWE in 2007, but returned in 2008 and stayed loyal to the company until he left in early 2021.
