Former WWE superstar and multi-time world champion Paul Wight—aka the Big Show–has signed with AEW as a commentator for its newest YouTube show, AEW Dark: Elevation, which premieres Monday on AEW’s YouTube channel.
“It’s been amazing to watch what AEW has built in just a couple of years,” said Wight in a statement. “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.”
Wight, a Grand Slam Champion, had been with WWE since February of 1999 and has a storied career with matches up against contemporary legends like Triple H, the Rock, Stone Cold, and Undertaker. He made his debut at the only St. Valentine’s Day Massacre pay-per-view. He soon became a mainstay on WWE television.
