Paul Wight is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world as he worked in the business for well over two decades. He’s been working in AEW for the past few months and his performance has been stellar as a commentator. NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal made it clear he wants a match against Paul Wight. Now it seems the match might finally happen.
Paul Wight previously made it clear that he wants the dream match between the two to take place in AEW. The likelihood of the match is now certainly high from the looks of it.
While speaking on the Insight with Chris Van Vliet podcast, Paul Wight made it clear that he believes the long-awaited match against Shaquille O’Neal will finally happen in AEW.
“I think it will happen now because there’s not as much red tape. I mean, he’s already competed here in AEW, had a great match with Cody Rhodes, Jade Cargill and Shaq versus Cody Rhodes and red velvet. That was an incredible showing for Shaq. So hopefully, we’ll be able to cut some more red tape and make that happen. He’s been hitting the gym lately. Shaq is pretty big right now like he’s a huge Shaq. I guess it is the best way to look at. I think he’s a little nervous about me, so he’s putting on a little size.”
A match between the two was first teased back in 2009 on an episode of Monday Night RAW. After that, O’Neal and Paul Wight had another interaction at WrestleMania 32, where they competed in the Andre The Giant Battle Memorial.
We will have to wait and see just when the two behemoths will face off against each other as it will definitely be a match for the ages.
