Paul Wight Thinks An AEW Match With Kenny Omega 'Could Rip The Roof Off The Building'

Paul Wight wants a match with Kenny Omega

Paul Wight believes he could have a banger with Kenny Omega, stating on Deuce and Mo that he and The Best Bout Machine could "rip the roof off the building." The former Big Show also mentioned the likes of Darby Allin, Powerhouse Hobbs, Wardlow, and Lance Archer as talents he would like to mix it up with in All Elite Wrestling.

"There are a couple of guys I want to work with. I definitely want to work with Kenny Omega at some point. 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," Wight said.

"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."

Wight has not wrestled in AEW since March 2022 when he defeated Austin Gunn on an episode of Dark: Elevation. Wight has undergone hip and knee replacement surgeries over the past year and he was wheelchair-bound for 11 weeks at one point. 

The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion is under contract with AEW for two more years
