In a recent interaction with the Battleground Podcast, wrestling veteran Paul Wight shared his enthusiasm about potentially revisiting his role as a commentator for AEW. Wight previously lent his voice to the now-discontinued AEW Dark: Elevation.
Citing his past experience, Wight commented, "Absolutely. That’s one of my main reasons for kind of pursuing other things. I mean, where I worked before [WWE], I was a brand... Tony Khan was really great to give me that mobility and that fluidity to try different things. I didn’t know if I’d be good at commentary... But I knew I had a feeling for it, I knew that I liked it.”
When delving into his coaching approach, Wight said, “I knew that I’m not going to be a guy that’s going to go out and physically train you... But what I can do is help talent put their story over on air because... the announcers played such a key role in that. They can help translate your story to the television audience that’s not there, that can’t understand the energy or the little nuances so they help propel that storyline along.”
