Paul Wight's Move to AEW: The Ultimate Transition from WWE

Former WWE Icon Paul Wight Praises Transition to AEW

The shift from WWE to AEW has been a game-changer for former WWE star Paul Wight, who now goes by his real name in All Elite Wrestling. Since his debut in 2021, Wight has not only graced the ring but has also contributed backstage and on commentary, showcasing his multifaceted talents. With an impressive 6-0 undefeated streak in matches, Wight’s impact on AEW has been undeniable.

In a recent interview with The Yes Network during the New York Yankees spring training game, Wight reflected on his journey from WWE to AEW, expressing profound gratitude for the opportunity:

“It’s been fantastic. I was blessed to work for a big company for a lot of years all over the world. Now, at my stage of the game, to find myself useful in a company that allows me to spread a lot of my knowledge to the younger talent, get a chance to get on the microphone every now and then and enhance them, help their characters along, and then get in the ring and mix it up. It’s probably the single greatest thing that could ever happen to me. I’m blessed, grateful, and thankful for the fans who still like to see me do my thing.”

Wight’s enthusiasm for his role in AEW is palpable, as he embraces the opportunity to mentor younger talent and contribute to the growth of the promotion. His last memorable outing in the ring was alongside Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, and Kota Ibushi in the electrifying “Like A Dragon” Street Fight on the November 15, 2023 episode of AEW Dynamite.
