Unfortunately, that's all too true where he is concerned, when he was out of wwe before he returned to do the Mayweather match he was in training for boxing and was apparently in the shit for money big time.

According to Barker, Wight then broke down. “He started crying; saying one of the most — probably one of the most unexpected events of my life; to see a 7-foot, 450 [pound] man sitting there at a desk crying, telling me that he didn’t know what he was going to do. He had to get on with his life. He knew he owed me money.”
They even put his money issues into a storyline on raw where he was suing the authority.

Gonna be mildly amusing to see a fat Jericho alongside a slimline Big Show, was the other way around for years.

So much angst over signing a commentator...

I have no doubt he will get involved physically somewhere somehow but from what I can see hes a commentator, adds a vet to the promotion and a guy who seems to be a fairly witty dude.

I think he will do well in this role.

He's not signing on to be a huge star with the main event scenebuilt around him. I'm almost 100% certain we get the Shaq match, and Show will be involved here and there as an in ring competitor. But that stated flatly he's there to be an announcer. Which is fine. He's a charismatic guy who can help try to get guys over.

Wonder if his contract includes him making an appearance on The Go-Big Show with Cody.

Hope him joining the commentary for another Dark series means they split up Dark to be an hour each at most and not just have another lengthy show each week. AEW's Dark format doesn't really lend itself well to being in the 2+ hour range for shows.

You can't ignite things if no one new is watching the show. At least by announcing it they could bring new eyes.

Will Paul Wight bring in many new eyes? I'm not sure, but he could and the way to ensure that is by letting people know ahead of time.

Honestly there is a ton of programs waiting for Wight in AEW...

Something with Jericho, I expect these two to be commentary partners on Elevation.

Mox, I think they would have a good hardcore match.

Archer, obviously this is probably the best match waiting for Show.

Wardlow, could be elevating to The Ward Dog.

Dark Order shenanigans, come on! Choke slams a many and comedy to boot.

Kenny Omega, I mean show had some great matches with Lesnar and Angle, why not Omega? I think they should be able to come up with an original match that would surprise us all.

MJF, just imagining them on the mic together and I could see a lot of fun stuff.

Brian Cage, similar to Archer this could be a surprisingly good program that may surprise us all.

Shaq, obviously this has to be on the horizon. It could be a media boost at the very least. It's a good idea.

Kingston. There is nobody Eddie can't work magic with. The mic trade off would be great but also they could do a great brawl together.

Just some of the ideas that came to me when hearing the GIANT news.

On one hand, I'm surprised because I didn't think Paul would go anywhere else.

On the other hand, He has no problem with making an enormous ass of himself, so he'd fit right in with this clown show.

A few questions will be answered though:

1. If Paul sat in a chair to interview a standing Marko Stunt, would he still appear taller than Stunt? I mean, if he's a commentator, I imagine he'd have to do interviews at some point. How would he do them without making the other guy look diminutive in comparison.?

2. If he had a match with Orange Cassidy, would he FINALLY be the one to show how stupid the whole "Put my hands in my Pockets" gimmick is? He has two options for that: The chokeslam and the WMD. Both he could do to Fire Ant.

3. What could he show a bunch of hosses in a company that has been, thus far, very hostile to hosses? Seriously, the big men have been made to look more or less foolish.

Some of the articles are a bit lol with the Hyperbole ramped right up.

Quote:
It was an announcement which has left the wrestling world in a state of shock after Big Show's 22-year-long stay with WWE, a rival company to AEW.
"State of shock" as part timer thats verging on a half century of age and who has had a handful of matches in the last few years leaves the company. Yeah it was surprising but it's not as if he was being used to any extent.


There's also talk going round he was annoyed at the orton segment in January where Orton said his career was over.

And yet more talk he was in "huge debt" which led to the AEW signing.

https://wrestling-edge.com/big-show-...on-disrespect/




Nice to see he heeded Macho Man telling him to save his money.

Everybody losing their minds over this and I'll I can think of is the fact that he's done his part in wwe that there's no longer a need for him to remain. The WWE ship is bloated and he'll just pop the bottle. Good for him doing what he thinks is best for him and his family. I hope his fans understand his decision and wrestling will continue; it's a business; nothing else.

Not even that it was a dark match, it did air on TV after all. He literally had 3 or 4 matches after that though. He teamed with the Viking Raiders at one point.

We may not all be able to agree on the AEW/Paul Wight pairing but can we all at least agree that WWE botched his career for 20 years and wasted away a guy that could have been a HUGE worldwide attraction?

Let’s at least bond on this, TPWW family.

I’m stopping short of saying he could have been Andre-level if handled properly because Andre was one of a kind but... a mobile giant with that much likeability and charisma. There’s no excuse for him becoming a guy you turn the channel on.

Big Show botched himself too. The WWF inherited a fat, lazy, bad habit-ridden asshole. He got past that, to some degree, but he obviously never had the mind Andre did. Booking is some of it, but you also have guys who don’t mind wearing a diaper and dancing around as Baby New Year. He’s had a legendary and “entertaining” career for what it was. A sometimes serious, usually silly, big oaf who was...there.

He was not damaged beyond repair in 1999. If they had booked him strong even up until Vince bought WCW 2 years later, do you really think people would have not bought in because he was jobbing to Kevin Nash in WCW 3 years earlier?

Who decided WWE needed to have monthly super cards?

And who decided that all talent needed to be used on all super cards, thus taking away the ability to build special attractions?

You’re excusing WWE for being a victim of a problem they created themselves.

Let’s at least bond on this, TPWW family.

The face\heel switcheroo really started in WCW as he turned quite a few times. But WWE brought it up to another level to say the least. He got into great shape far too late in his career for it to make any difference, had he continued his weight loss and training from his Mayweather match he may well have made more of an impact in the years that followed.

But the reality is he ballooned up in weight again, not to his ecw weight which was a legit 535 or thereabouts for a time but over the 400lb mark and he just looked out of shape and flabby.

I think for the most part the crowd got bored of him due to his many many "turns", it really became all he was known for in the end. At last count it was around 30 or so iirc, which is fucking ridiculous to say the least. It's like the so called "creative" team just used him as a flip\flop machine when they didn't have any ideas for him.

He could have been a bigger player than he ended up being, part of that is down to his laziness in being out of shape for most of his career and the other part down to wwe misusing him constantly.

lets say he's got infinite potential coming in. with the structure of modern wrestling you still cant hope to get more than 8 months from a heel these days before you need to cool him off, take him off air or turn him. theres no room for legitimate long term heat.

The story Bruce Prichard gave about why that happened is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard in wrestling and fits entirely well with WWE's booking mentality post-Attitude Era.

They purposely deflated the hype he brought in solely just to see how he'd react backstage afterwards. They thought he'd flip out backstage over losing his first notable match and when that didn't happen, that left them with damaged goods and no real big plans for him at the time.
