Paul Wight made a stunning return on AEW Dynamite, knocking out one star and confirming his place in a massive Street Fight.
Chris Jericho was taken to pieces on the 10th of October edition of Dynamite by Powerhouse Hobbs as his issues with The Don Callis Family continued. Jericho had caused rumours to swirl as he referenced having a friend bigger than Hobbs and in Louisville, Kentucky, fans found out exactly who he was talking about.
Jericho teamed with Kenny Omega on Dynamite as The Golden Jets took on former Jericho Appreciation Society members Matt Menard and Angelo Parker. Jericho and Omega picked up a relatively straightforward win but trouble is never far away with The Don Callis Family and they kept a close eye on proceedings from the commentary desk.
After the match, Don Callis was flanked by Konosuke Takeshita, Powerhouse Hobbs, and Kyle Fletcher when he challenged Jericho and Omega to a Street Fight on the November 15 edition of Dynamite. Omega accepted, noting that he and Jericho would be joined by Kota Ibushi but Callis pointed out his Family still had the man advantage with Excalibur mentioning on commentary Sammy Guevara is still to return.
Paul Wight Set For Dynamite Street Fight
Chris Jericho then revealed that his big friend was Paul Wight and the former Big Show made his way into the arena. Kyle Fletcher approached the giant star but ate a KO punch to the face for his trouble. Paul Wight’s appearance has sparked some concern, however, despite looking dominant.
"As big as Will Hobbs is… he's not a giant!"
PAUL WIGHT is here!

Paul Wight has only competed in four matches during his time in AEW with the last of those coming in March 2022. His most high-profile bout in the company took place at All Out in 2021 when he defeated QT Marshall.
Dynamite also saw Tony Khan make yet another big announcement that has implications for a major AEW show in 2024.
