As previously reported, professional wrestling veteran and former WWE Superstar Paul “Big Show” Wight has signed a contract with All Elite Wrestling. Big Show’s deal states that he has signed a long-term deal with the company to be a commentator on AEW’s brand-new show called Dark: Elevation, and that he will also be wrestling at some point in the future. His signing is reportedly one of the biggest news in pro wrestling’s recent history.
Prior to signing with All Elite Wrestling, someone close to Paul Wight said that he had major changes happen to his life. According to Fightful Select, Paul Wight’s Netflix show had just been done and he had just sold his home. Also, with Paul’s WWE deal expiring, signing with AEW was just the big career move he needed and was expected of him.
This is what Fightful Select said:
“One person close to Paul Wight said that they imagined a major career move was happening as Wight has had some “major life events” over the past few months between selling his house, his WWE deal expiring and his Netflix show being canceled.”
