Paul Wight: I Definitely Want To Work With Kenny Omega At Some Point

Paul Wight has his sights set on potentially working with Kenny Omega.

Wight, formerly known as The Big Show, has not wrestled since March 2022. He had knee replacement in August, but he is working on getting back to the ring.


In an interview with Deuce and Mo, Wight named some of the stars he wants to work with, and he pointed to former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega. He also named Powerhouse Hobbs, Wardlow, and Darby Allin, among others.

“There are a couple guys I want to work with. I definitely want to work with Kenny Omega at some point,” Wight said. “I’m totally fascinated by a lot of stuff Kenny Omega does. Kenny and I could have a great big man, little man match. I have zero doubts in my mind we could rip the roof off the building. (Powerhouse) Hobbs, Wardlow. Even Darby Allin. I’d probably have to be a bad guy to compete against Darby Allin, but if I was a bad guy competing against Darby Allin, I could have the place rioting because he does such a good job with his character of selling and fighting from underneath. Lance Archer is another one. Orange Cassidy would be fun to play with, maybe tag with. As an opponent, he’d probably irritate the hell out of me, but as a tag partner he’d be a lot of fun. I always tease Dark Order that I’m a card carrying member of Dark Order and I’m going to join Dark Order. There are so many great talents that whatever we put together, we’re going to have fun with. We have Satnam Singh, who is 7’2”, he’s a little green right now, but at some point, if I tag with him and show him how to tag team wrestle as a giant, that would be fun and maybe down the road split up into a feud there. The landscape is wide open to do whatever.” (Transcribed by Jeremy Lambert of Fightful)
