AEW To Use Paul Wight’s Movie Character Very Soon


All Elite Wrestling has plans to use Captain Insano, the movie character played by Paul Wight, very soon.

Wight played the fictional wrestler in 1998’s ‘The Waterboy’ in which Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler) tries to make it on the football team for the University of Louisiana.


In an appearance on The Rob Brown Show, Wight revealed that Tony Khan has secured the rights to the Captain Insano character:

“Tony Khan and I have some pretty fun stuff coming up in the future that him and I put together. So we’ve actually secured the rights to Captain Insano, so we are going to break out. Captain Insano will be coming out in the next couple of months, so that’s why I’ve kind of toned down a little on the in-ring performing as well. We’re kind of letting that settle, doing the commentary work.

“I’m getting a wardrobe together now for the outfits. Max Dunbar, who is an incredible comic book design guy helped draw the outfit up for Captain Insano. We’re getting that made now and before you know it, Captain Insano’s going to be running wild in AEW dude.”

Wight has said he hopes to compete at next week’s tapings in his hometown of Columbia, South Carolina.
