Update on Paul Wight/Big Show in-ring return for AEW

Last updated

AEW commentator Jim Ross recently discussed the situation regarding his colleague Paul Wight, and when/if we can expect the former Big Show to make his way into the ring for All Elite Wrestling.

It had been noted from the start that Paul Wight was likely to be an in-ring competitor, however, up to now, his duties have purely been commentating on the AEW Dark: Elevation YouTube show.

“I was talking to Big Show down in Miami at length because our dressing facilities were a little snug” JR began, speaking on his Grilling JR podcast.

“He’s working hard on his weight and getting back in better shape. He didn’t say it to me, but I’m assuming that somewhere down the road, we’ll see Big Show back in the ring” JR continued.

“I don’t think it’s going to be every week. We don’t use anybody every week really. I do think he’ll be back in the ring at some point in time. He’ll be rejuvenated, he’ll be renewed, and I think he’ll do well’ Jim Ross would conclude regarding the status of Paul Wight.
