Paul Wight analyzes the current product

Paul Wight made himself known around the world by performing in WWE under the ring name of 'Big Show' In addition to being a seven-time world champion, he has also won the Intercontinental Championship, the United States Championship and the Hardcore Championship.

Between WWE and WCW, he has captured a whopping 23 titles and fought in the main event of the main pay-per-view of both federations. On February 24, 2021, he signed a contract with All Elite Wrestling, where he is also a member of the 'AEW Dark: Elevation' commentary team.

On August 11, 2021, he intervened to save his friend Tony Schiavone from the attack of QT Marshall, Nick Comoroto and Aaron Solow. The following week the match between Wight and Marshall for All Out was announced, easily won by Paul.

In a recent interview with 'CricketNext', the former Big Show highlighted the main differences between WWE and AEW.

Paul Wight is a wrestling legend

“Wrestling is experiencing a very flourishing period and it's good that it's not just WWE anymore.

AEW shows are completely different from WWE ones. All Elite Wrestling offers fans a more wrestling-focused product, while WWE shows are more soap opera-like,” said Paul Wight. “As I always say, they are two totally different products.

The AEW gets straight to the point, in no uncertain terms. WWE has always focused more on storylines and character development through promos. AEW gave fans a choice. If, on the other hand, there is only one product, some athletes will struggle to grow and fully express their talent” - he added.

Big Show finally revealed who he would like to fight against: “It would have been a dream for me to work with two legends of the caliber of Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart. They were the two great symbols of the Attitude Era and it was everyone's dream to share the ring with them.

They made the history of this business. I have just been chomping at the bit to get back in the ring. There are so many talents I just want to work with and spend time in the ring with, and try to help, pass that knowledge along and still have fun.

That's the biggest, that's one of my biggest reasons for making the transition, as I still want to compete in the ring. You know, I had to leave WWE. I had done everything there, and there's nothing for me to accomplish. There's nothing there for me to do more of, and I still like lacing up the boots in the ring," Paul Wight said.
