• WWF Legend Wants To Wrestle In AEW
WWF Legend The Big Show (now known under his real name Paul Wight) recently appeared on Busted Open Radio and talked about joining Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling earlier this year, after he had been with the WWF/E since 1999, which made him one of the longest employees there.
Here’s what the former WCW/WWF/ECW/WWE World Heavyweight Champion had to say when asked if he has the ‘itch’ to wrestle again:
“Itch? Man I need to dump myself into a vat of cortisone I’ve got the itch so bad. It’s ridiculous. And it’s the best thing I could’ve done.
For so many years I was in WWE, and I was a gear in the cog of the machine up there. But I knew what we were doing at live events, I knew what we were doing on RAW and SmackDown.
I know who is new. I had my finger on that environment.
When I came to AEW, a lot of these people I didn’t know, some of them I never heard of before. I didn’t understand their styles, didn’t understand any of it.
So one of the luckiest and smartest moves I think I was able to be a part of was to do (AEW YouTube show) Elevation, because I really got to see the talent, understand the talent.
And it’s made me more comfortable where now I really know, up here, how I settle in, how I get over, how I help the other talent, how I pull ratings and help AEW grow.
I think it’s the first time in my entire career where everything is lined up. The knowledge is there, health is there, the desire is there and the opportunity is there. So I’m excited to see what’s going to happen.
This is the first time in god knows how many years where I know all that’s a definitive fact.”
