[Full Story] WWE Star Big Show joins AEW with a long term deal with promotions

WWE legend The Big Show has left the company and signed a shocking deal with All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

The former world champion – now working under his real name Paul Wight – has joined the rival promotion, with the company confirming he will be an in-ring performer as well as commentator for new AEW Dark: Elevation.

In a statement, Wight said: ‘It’s been amazing to watch what AEW has built in just a couple of years.

And AEW boss Tony Khan is understandably delighted with signing one of the biggest names – no pun intended – in wrestling history.

Khan – the company’s CEO, GM and Head of Creative – commented: ‘Paul Wight is one of the most recognisable and impressive professional athletes in the world.

He wanted to come to AEW because he believes that we’re the best promotion in wrestling, and we believe that he has a lot to offer us, both in the ring as a wrestler, and also outside the ring as a commentator, host and ambassador for AEW.’

He continued: ‘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.
