Paul Wight Reveals How Long Is Left On His AEW Contract
Paul Wight on his AEW contract
Paul Wight won't be exiting All Elite Wrestling anytime soon.
The former Big Show signed with AEW in February 2021 as an in-ring talent and Dark: Elevation commentator following his exit from WWE. Wight has now revealed that he has a couple of years remaining on his deal with AEW.
Speaking about a potential in-ring return on Deuce and Mo, Wight stated:
"Working hard, training hard to get back in the ring, which will hopefully happen real soon. I've had a hip replacement and just got a knee replacement done in August, which sounds like the end of an athlete's career, but modern technology, I'll tell you, I feel better joint-wise than I've felt the past 15 years. Now, it's about getting the muscle stronger and having a bit more fun. I have a couple of years left in AEW, for sure, signed a nice healthy contract when I came over and I plan on making good on that contract in AEW for Tony Khan and myself."
Wight noted last month that he was hoping to make his in-ring return in March. Prior to undergoing knee replacement surgery in 2022, Wight revealed that he was wheelchair-bound for 11 weeks.
The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion hasn't wrestled for All Elite Wrestling since defeating Austin Gunn on a March 2022 episode of Dark: Elevation.
