All Elite Wrestling made a shocking announcement earlier today and revealed The Big Show/Paul Wight had signed with the young promotion.
Within that announcement, AEW also revealed their newest show, AEW Dark: Elevation. The new series will air on Mondays at 7 pm ET on AEW's YouTube channel and will feature "established and rising" AEW stars alongside top independent wrestling talent within the industry. The show will complement the young promotion's other programming and wins and losses on the series will count towards the AEW rankings.
Paul Wight will also be a commentator on the new show.
Upon signing with AEW, Wight said: "It's been amazing to watch what AEW has built in just a couple of years. AEW Dark is an incredible platform to hone the skills of up-and-coming wrestlers, but I also love that established AEW talent can build out their personalities and showcase themselves in new ways on Dark. It's no exaggeration when they say that AEW is boundless."
Tony Khan added: "Paul is one of the most experienced stars in all of wrestling, and he's eager to work with our diverse roster. He can benefit and guide our young talent with his mentorship, and his expert commentary on AEW Dark: Elevation will educate and entertain our fans, and also educate the younger wrestlers on the roster. Furthermore, Paul enters AEW as a licensed wrestler, and he's very much looking forward to studying our talent firsthand from the commentary desk in preparation for his return to the ring!"
