Welcome back. There are certain wrestlers who are going to get your attention for one reason or another. This might be something that jumps off the page to you the second you see them, which can often make guarantee them at least a shot for a long time. If they have something to back it up, they are going to be an even bigger star. That was on display this week.

This week on AEW Dynamite, Paul Wight, formerly known as the Big Show in WWE, announced that he would be facing QT Marshall at All Out on September 5. This will be Wight’s first match in AEW and his first match of any kind since July 2020. The match came about after Wight saved Tony Schiavone’s son from an attack at the hands of Marshall and the rest of the Nightmare Factory.

Wight made his AEW debut in February 2021 and has served as the color analyst on AEW Dark: Elevation. Since his debut, Wight has said that he planned to wrestle for AEW at some point in the future. Wight is a former seven time World Champion, winning World Titles in both WCW and WWE, including the WWE version of the ECW World Title. He left WWE in January 2021.

Wight could certainly do something in an AEW ring. Check out his time there so far and some of his better in-ring moments:

Opinion: This is an interesting way to start things off with Wight, as having him face Marshall is not quite what I was picturing for him. That being said, if the match is two minutes long and involves a chokeslam into the big right hand, everything will work out just fine. Wight is someone who is going to make an impact just because of his past reputation so putting him in a spot like this will work out well.
