'I Can Keep Myself Busy' - Paul Wight Lists Talent He Wants To Wrestle In AEW

Wight has a long list of names

Paul Wight has listed off the names in All Elite Wrestling he can't wait to have the opportunity to work with. 

Wight moved to AEW in February but is yet to compete for the company, getting physical for the first time during last week's AEW Dynamite as he came to Tony Schiavone's aid against The Factory. 

The former Big Show has now listed the names he wants to face in an AEW ring, which includes AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, Lance Archer, Darby Allin and Adam Page.

Talking to the Ring Report, Wight said: "Kenny Omega is amazing. Just to watch him work in the ring and the way he hustles and bumps and feeds, the guy is really next-level talent, especially as a heel with the way he works. The Young Bucks are brilliant. I’ve really enjoyed watching those guys in the tag team division, especially with their heel turn. It’s been great.

"Hangman Adam Page is just a red hot babyface in the making. This guy can definitely carry that AEW Championship and do something with it. The Murderhawk Lance Archer. He’s really, really come into his own with that whole Murderhawk gimmick. He’s intense in the ring and wrestles a lot bigger than he is. I really like his presence in the ring.

"Darby Allin is probably my top pick if I was a heel. Anyone who is a heel right now that has a chance to work with Darby, that’s the perfect babyface to work with right now. He exemplifies what a babyface is today. He’s a little eccentric, a little different, but he’s just in your face every time coming back for more. I really appreciate him.

"Some other talents in AEW are coming along. Jungle Boy is another babyface you’d love to work with. I always tease him and call him ‘grizzled’ because I think he’s had the most matches in AEW. It’s like 53 or 54 so far which is crazy when he’s as young as he is, but he’s got really good ring presence and he’s another one I think in the right program could really accelerate to that next level superstar babyface with the right heel behind to push him.

"There’s a lot of younger talent there I’ll hopefully get chance to work with like Hobbs and Luchasaurus, this incredibly athletic big monster. For me, I see a lot of potential line-ups. It’s funny that you ask that, but there are a lot of guys I’m ticking off in my head I want to wrestle. I can keep myself busy for the next three or four years."
