Has Big Show Paul Wight left AEW and Tony Khan?

Tony Khan then revealed that Paul Wight has been injured for the majority of his AEW run. Khan explained that Paul is not able to travel a lot of times. He claimed that Wight has worked really hard and deserves opportunities in AEW:

“Unfortunately, a lot of his time in AEW he’s been hurt. He’s great on commentary when he’s able to travel and I think he has a great future. Frankly, I think he’s worked really really hard at it and deserves opportunities there. So I have a lot of great things to say about Paul Wight.”
