• Reason Behind Big Show Leaving WWE & Signing With AEW

As we noted earlier, former WWF Champion “Paul Wight” The Big Show has signed with WWE’s rival company, All Elite Wrestling.

According to PWInsider, Big Show was very unhappy with his final WWE appearance, which was on the January 4th Legends Night edition of RAW.

On that episode, Randy Orton bullied Big Show in a backstage segment and it was portrayed that Big Show isn’t physically capable of doing anything anymore.

You can watch it below:

Big Show’s WWE contract expired a few days after his RAW Legends Night appearance and both sides couldn’t agree to a new deal financially.

“WWE and Wight were unable to come to terms on a new deal financially and his final contract with the company expired last month, days after he made an appearance being verbally bullied by Randy Orton on the RAW Legends Night episode on 1/4.

One source stated that Wight was very open that night about his unhappiness about the situation.”
