Paul Wight Fantasy Books Surprising Opponent For Kenny Omega At All In

Kenny Omega

While many fans were surprised that Kenny Omega won’t be in a singles match at AEW All In, Paul Wight has an even more eyebrow-raising suggestion.

All In will see the Golden Lovers reunite as Omega has brought in Kota Ibushi to help him and ‘Hangman’ Adam Page in their clash with Konosuke Takeshita and Bullet Club Gold’s Jay White and Juice Robinson in Wembley Stadium.

The match came about after White and Robinson attacked the Best Bout Machine while he was being interviewed by Jim Ross on Dynamite. Takeshita also joined in the attack, continuing his months-long rivalry with Omega.

With Omega in hospital, Page later revealed that the star had friends in him and Ibushi, saying that together they would face White, Robinson, and Takeshita.

If Paul Wight had his way, though, Omega would be facing a very different opponent, the Big Show himself.

During an interview with DAZN, Wight was asked what he would have headline the event, and being “super greedy,” the WWE Hall of Famer said it would be him and Omega tearing the house down to close the show.

“I’m going to be super greedy and I’d pick myself and I would fight Kenny Omega.

Kenny Omega is one guy in AEW that I think is just another talent that I would love to work with because of his intensity. I think Kenny and I could have torn the house down.”

Will Paul Wight be part of AEW All In?

During the same interview, Wight confirmed that he would be in London for All In, not only that, he teased that he would bring along his alter ego, Captain Insano, from Adam Sandler’s 1998 comedy The Waterboy.

Wight revealed in 2022 that AEW had the rights to use the character, although he’s only appeared in that guise once before, in a music video alongside The Acclaimed.
