Paul Wight Hopes To Be Less "Schizophrenic" In AEW Than WWE And Shares Advice For Younger Talent (Exclusive)

Paul Wight tells us that he's hopeful his character won't jump between babyface and heel as much as The Big Show did in WWE, while also sharing some insightful advice for younger wrestlers in AEW. Check it out!

We've brought you a lot of highlights recently from our chat with Paul Wight, including his thoughts on those big CM Punk rumours and the opponents he's most looking forward to facing in AEW. 

In this final excerpt (you'll find the full interview about his role in Netflix's Fast & Furious: Spy Racers South Pacific ahead of its August 13 on ComicBookMovie.com tomorrow), Wight talks to us about his hopes that "Paul Wight" won't jump from babyface to heel as much as "Big Show" did in WWE.

"If in some point in my career I could turn heel - I know that sounds crazy that I could turn heel...it just depends on the day of the week, I guess [Laughs]," Wight said on a possible match with Darby Allin and why he'd want to be a bad guy in that scenario. "Hopefully, my character won’t be quite so schizophrenic in AEW as he was in WWE where he changed every five minutes, but if I was a heel working with somebody like Darby Allin, he would just be a gift."

The way WWE changed The Big Show's personality on a whim became meme-worthy, but AEW's storytelling is a little more consistent than WWE's. In the same interview, Wight shared advice for younger talent in the company he now calls home as a commentator on AEW Dark: Elevation.

"It’s funny, one of the things I tell the younger guys and gals is, ‘When you’re alone doing stuff, whether you’re cleaning or doing laundry, driving down the road, or sitting on the couch; have matches with people in your head you might be working with someday.' That’s one of the secrets to being a success later is having scenarios in your mind about people you want to work with. You have to be excited about the product, the talent. Having those matches in your head where one’s a heel and one’s a face, the spots that will happen, and the finishes are always good things to put in your mind so if you do end up in a program with someone, you already have an idea of what they do and you understand them and how to compliment yourself with them and tell a better story."

AEW is definitely going to benefit from having Wight sharing this sort of insight into what helps make someone a successful wrestler, and he'll hopefully be given the opportunity to step into the ring with them soon. As of right now, it doesn't look like there are plans for that to happen in the immediate future, but we know that part of his deal with AEW was to be an active wrestler.
