He’s back. AEW has changed the way the wrestling world works as there is now another major promotion with a lot of money and a good television slot. The promotion is able to offer wrestlers something they have not had in a very long time: another place to go besides WWE. Several former WWE stars have appeared in AEW, and one of them did something big this week.

During this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, QT Marshall and the Nightmare Factory attacked Tony Schiavone’s son while holding Schiavone himself back. As a result, Paul Wight, Schiavone’s broadcast partner on AEW Dark: Elevation, came out to save Schiavone, including a chokeslam to Aaron Solow. This is the first time Wight has gotten physical in AEW, though he has not been announced for a match.

It was a big moment. Check out the debut plus Wight’s time in AEW and elsewhere:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that suits Wight well. Wight beat up a lackey in a low level stable. That is not going to cause any major issues and there is a good chance that this will lead to Wight facing Marshall in a match. It isn’t going to hurt anyone in the long run and gives fans a special moment. This doesn’t need to be anything more than a quick match and that is likely what we are going to see.
