AEW Dark: Elevation commentator and wrestler Paul Wight recently appeared on the Chris Van Vliet podcast. Wight discussed several topics during the interview, including a potential match with Shaquille O’Neal.

“I think that will happen now because there is not as much red tape” Paul Wight revealed, talking about how the match was meant to happen in WWE but never came to fruition.

“He’s already competed with Cody Rhodes. It was him and Jade Cargill vs. Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet. That was an incredible showing for Shaq, so hopefully, we’ll be able to cut some more red tape and make it happen” Wight added.

“He’s been hitting the gym lately, Shaq is pretty big right now. He’s huge Shaq, that’s the best way of looking at it. I think he is nervous about me so he is putting on a bit of size. Whereas I am “Tall Paul” the car salesman [laughs]” the former Big Show concluded.

It remains to be seen if AEW will pull the trigger on the potential mega match, as it could potentially be a big mainstream hit for the promotion.
