Paul Wight–formerly known as the Big Show in WWE–made waves in the world of wrestling last week when it was announced he would be signing with All Elite Wrestling. Cody Rhodes believes he could be doing more for the company in the future, outside of his commentary duties.
During a media call for the AEW Revolution PPV, which takes place on Sunday, March 7, Rhodes discussed Wight’s signing on with the company. “I do think there’s a match, or two, or three or four and that’s just me personally because I know he’s able to still go at a high level,” explained Rhodes. “But from a management standpoint, I’m most excited about him just being in our locker room.”
Wight will be doing commentary for the upcoming show AEW: Elevation, which debuts on March 15 on AEW’s YouTube channel. Getting Wight to sign on wasn’t difficult. “There wasn’t a long negotiation process simply because he wants to be here,” Rhodes said. “Very much so. And he wants to be here in a different capacity, as far as announcing and commentary goes with Elevation.”
