Last month, AEW announced the signing of Paul Wight (fka WWE’s Big Show) to a long-term contract. Beginning on March 15, Wight and Tony Schiavone will commentate AEW Dark: Elevation (7 pm ET on AEW’s YouTube channel). Wight is also expected to wrestle on occasion.
Wight’s alter-ego, Captain Insano, might also be appearing in AEW as part of their upcoming video games after the promotion filed to trademark the name on March 2 (h/t Heel By Nature). Below is the full description for the trademark:
Video game cartridges and discs; Digital media, namely, pre-recorded DVDs, downloadable audio and video recordings, and CDs featuring and promoting wrestling; Downloadable video game software; Recorded video game software.
Fans may remember Wight’s appearance in The Waterboy (1998) starring Adam Sandler (Bobby Boucher). Wight played — of course — a wrestler in the film that Boucher was a huge fan of, as seen in the clip below.
